EY makes global executive appointments

EY has appointed Uschi Schreiber to global vice chair for markets and chair of the global accounts committee. The role sits within the network's most senior management body, according to EY.

Prior to her new role Schreiber was EY's global sector leader for its government & public service practice from 2010 to 2014. The appointment makes Schreiber the fourth woman on the global management team.

George Atalla, who joins the firm from Booze & Co., is to succeed Schreiber in the role of global sector leader for its government & public service practice. Atalla's pervious role was vice president at Booz & Co., where he led their government & public sector practice across the Middle East and Africa regions. Booze & Co. was acquired by PwC earlier in the year and rebranded to Strategy&.

EY has also appointed Jay Nibbe to global vice chair for Tax, leading more than 35,000 tax professionals around the world.

Nibbe chairs EY's tax executive committee and is also a member of EY's global executive, the organisation's highest management body.

Nibbe, who joined EY in 1985, was most recently the chair of EY's global accounts committee and deputy area managing partner for (EMEIA). Previously Nibbe also worked as Americas vice chair of tax and Americas tax managing partner.

Prior to his leadership roles in the Americas, from 1995 to 1999, Nibbe was based in Moscow where he led tax in the Commonwealth of Independent States for four years, developing EY practices in Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Ukraine.
