EY appoint head of EMEIA region

EY has appointed Julie Teigland as leader of EY Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EY EMEIA), EY’s second largest region by revenue, effective 1 July 2019.

The region accounts for $13.9bn in revenue and more than 115,000 staff across 98 countries.

Teigland, who will be the first woman to lead EY EMEIA, will also join the EY Global Executive Committee, the networks highest body. This in turn will raise the body’s gender balance by increasing the number of women to almost a third (31%).

Teigland is currently EY’s regional managing partner for Germany, Switzerland and Austria and is also EY’s leader for women. During her time as regional managing partner she has seen an average revenue growth of 9.4%.

EY global chairman and CEO Mark Weinberg said: “Over her 17 years with EY, Julie has demonstrated uncompromised integrity, strong business acumen and an ability to manage high-performing teams. I have every confidence that Julie and the strong EY people across EMEIA will continue to drive growth and transformation across the area and she will be a great voice on the EY Global Executive.”

EY global chairman and CEO-elect Carmine Di Sibio said: “The combination of Julie’s leadership skills, management experience and achievements in driving business results will help take EY in EMEIA to even greater heights. I look forward to working more closely with Julie and her team to continue the success in EMEIA.”

Teigland said: “It’s an honour to lead and work with EY teams across EMEIA, continuing to serve clients, addressing their biggest challenges and opportunities. We have a wealth of experience in digital transformation, a strong ecosystem, and incredibly talented people. I am looking forward to the impact we can make in EMEIA.”

Teigland will succeed Andy Baldwin, who will become EY’s global managing partner – client service on 1 July 2019.
