Dana Hanson has been appointed leader of Ernst
& Young’s (E&Y) power and utilities practice in the US.

The practice provides strategic, financial,
risk, IT and performance improvement services to companies across
the power and utilities industry.

Hanson was previously a partner in Accenture’s
supply chain management practice, where he led dozens of major
utilities projects in the US and internationally.

Prior to this Hanson spent two years at
E&Y US, working for the firm’s supply chain transformation
practice.

Hanson has experience in all aspects of the
energy industry, including strategy, supply chain transformation,
strategic sourcing, demand management, procurement transformation,
warehousing, and material and inventory management.

Hanson has also worked with clients in other
sectors, including oil and gas, mining, consumer packaged goods,
aircraft and defence and industrial products.

Hanson said power and utility companies are
currently facing significant transformation, bringing both risk and
opportunity.

“There are many issues that will potentially
change how this industry operates, including regulation and
compliance activities and challenges related to infrastructure and
technology. We’re working with companies to help them understand
how these changes will affect their business processes,” Hanson
explained.
