The EY organization announces that 1,033 people have been promoted to partner across the globe, the largest ever cohort of new partners. Women and the Assurance service line represent 32% and 33% of this year’s new partner class respectively. Similarly, emerging markets represent nearly a third of new partners, at 32%.
Carmine Di Sibio, EY Global Chairman and CEO, says:
“Congratulations to all new EY partners for achieving this exceptional career milestone. Every one of these transformative leaders has brought EY values to life and their promotions are the result of their dedication to the EY purpose of building a better working world.”
The class of 2021 was the largest in EY’s history, as the firm promoted 830 devotees of the Black and Yellow to partner. The year before that, EY only admitted a paltry 600 people into the partnership. Here’s a look at EY’s class of 2022 by the numbers:
- 423: The number of new partners in Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA), the most of any region, followed by the Americas with 398 and Asia-Pacific with 212.
- 344: The number of new partners in assurance, the most of any service line, followed by 265 in consulting, 235 in tax, 171 in strategy and transactions, and 18 in business support.
- 32%: The number of new partners who are women.
Congrats to all the new EY partners. If a list of names of the new EY Americas partners is lying around your inbox, feel free to send it to us. We’ll celebrate them properly!
