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.
