EY expands in Dutch Caribbean

EY has signed a conditional agreement to take over parts of the former KPMG Accountants and KPMG Advisory businesses in the Dutch Caribbean, (now known as KDC Interim), according to the Curaçao Chronicle.

It has been reported that a team of 50 from KDC Interim are to join EY in Aruba and Curaçao in assurance and advisory services in March 2019.

EY Dutch Caribbean managing partner Bryan Irausquin told the Curaçao Chronicle: “EY is continuously looking for opportunities to build our business and legacy in the interest of our people, clients and communities. The former KPMG Dutch Caribbean practice has been one of our most respected and fierce competitors in the Dutch Caribbean for many years.

“It’s humbling and at the same time it fills us with pride knowing that parts of this great group of professionals have decided to join our team. EY has a very strong quality and people culture and has been growing steadily over the years by sticking to our core values.

“Yet, we continue learning and growing every day to further improve as people, professionals and as an organisation. The KDC Interim professionals will be welcomed into our family with open arms and we are sure that we will learn a lot from each other as we continue forward as one.”

EY Caribbean Assurance managing partner Erick Statius van Eps told the publication: “These young professionals all have a visible role with clients and a strong commitment to quality, while the executives have a lot of experience driving innovation and a track record of inspiring teams.

“One thing we have in common is that we all have navigated through complex challenges and demonstrated that we are ready to engage and lead in the transformative age. We have a great opportunity ahead of us to strengthen our position in the Dutch Caribbean markets and deliver exceptional client service.
