Ernst & Young (E&Y) has appointed 548
partners across its global network.

The Big Four firm said a quarter of the
partners are female, which E&Y chief executive Jim Turley
called a “good achievement”.

“These admissions follow a rigorous selection
process which recognises the significant contribution each
individual has made to the success of Ernst & Young, and are a
strong vote of confidence in their leadership potential,” E&Y
chief operating officer John Ferraro said.
