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.”
