Uschi Schreiber appointed to lead Global Government and Public Sector Center at Ernst & Young
London, 14 March 2012 — Ernst & Young has appointed Uschi Schreiber as the new Global Leader for its Government and Public Sector Center, which provides innovative solutions to clients around the world including national, state, and regional governments, international institutions, as well as cities, and large non-profits. Uschi, a German / Australian based in Hong Kong, specializes in large scale change management and policy reform consulting in Government.
Schreiber joined Ernst & Young Australia in 2008 and led Ernst & Young’s Australia and New Zealand Government and Public Sector practice. In recent years, she was the Deputy CEO of the Oceania region and led its Markets organization. Schreiber is a former Director-General and Deputy Director General of delivery and central agency Government departments with a distinguished public sector career prior to joining Ernst & Young.
Commenting on her new role, Uschi says: “Our Government and public sector clients are increasingly seeking access to international ideas and solutions to complex systemic issues, not just in an economic context. They are more and more connected to their counterparts in other countries. Ernst & Young has a highly globalized practice which enables us to match and exceed our clients’ connectivity. We help them implement solutions that bring sustainable results drawing on our experiences from around the world.”
Schreiber is based in Hong Kong and says “Given the current global economic shift from West to East I am particularly excited to stay ahead of our clients’ thinking by sharing ideas between emerging and mature markets.”
Steve Almassy, Ernst & Young Global Vice Chair, Office of the Chairman Accounts and Industry, said: “I am delighted to welcome Uschi to this key global leadership role. Ernst & Young’s Government and Public Sector Center will benefit from her guidance informed by high level international experience and industry knowledge. Importantly, her base in Asia reflects the increasing relevance of emerging markets to our global business."
