In today’s edition of “Big 4-on-Big 4 Poaching From Around the World,” EY has added a couple of ex-Green Dotters to its partnership ranks in the U.K. and Australia.
David Bowen announced on LinkedIn in early May that he would be leaving Deloitte U.K. to become a partner and lead EY’s family office advisory services team:
In his new role at the Queen’s EY, Bowen said he will lead “a globally focused consulting practice that specializes in advising on the set up, review and transformation, and institutionalization/professionalization of single family offices.”
Bowen spent about four and a half years at Deloitte where he was head of private office consulting, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Before Deloitte, Bowen worked at PwC for four years, first as head of wealth advisory, South West, where he led P. Dubs’ wealth advisory practice across the Wales and West region, covering the Swansea, Cardiff, Bristol, Southampton, Reading and Uxbridge offices, and then later as an investment financial services specialist in the firm’s private office group.
Now to EY Australia where Hank Sciberras has boomeranged his way back after a half-dozen-year absence, according to the Australian Financial Review:
Hank Sciberras, 46, has re-joined EY as a [tax] partner after more than six years as a partner at Deloitte. He had been the Australian life science lead and Victorian practice leader of Deloitte’s global investment and innovation incentives group. Dr Sciberras is based in Melbourne.
Sciberras spent more than a decade at EY (2004-15), first as an executive director and then as a partner, before joining Deloitte in April 2015.
