As part of the rebrand, EY not only shortened the name and changed the tagline, but also redesigned the logo.

Weinberger explained, "from 1 July we will be called EY. Shortening our name will provide consistency and ease of use for EY practices and clients around the world.

"We have also redesigned our logo, reflecting our new brand name clearly in the design. Our new brand name and logo demonstrate clearly and boldly who we are and reflect the goal we have recently set ourselves to be the number one brand in our profession."

Explaining the motivation behind the new tagline, Weinberger said "We know that building a better working world is an ambitious objective but it is an incredibly important aspiration and will be front and centre of everything we do as an organisation."
