Ernst & Young a leader among financial management consulting services providers
London, 17 January 2012 – Ernst & Young is pleased to announce that it is positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner’s inaugural Magic Quadrant for Financial Management Consulting Services (FMC). The 2011 Magic Quadrant presents the vendor landscape for ten global consulting firms, where vendors are evaluated against the Gartner criteria of “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.”
Commenting on the announcement, Christopher A. Pontrelli, Ernst & Young Global Finance Management Leader said: “We believe this recognition from the analyst community that Ernst & Young is positioned in the Leaders quadrant demonstrates the tremendous advancement in the firm's capabilities to deliver FMC services on a global basis in a world-class manner.”
According to Gartner, “Leaders are performing well today, with a clear vision of market building competencies to sustain their leadership position in this space. The consultants in the quadrant generally share superior market understanding, vision, comprehensive methodologies and road maps. They have the global geographic reach to support their on-site clients and have well-communicated and well-marketed sales offerings. They also have the ability to advise regulators and assist financially stricken leading businesses in crisis.”
Alexander Barinov, Ernst & Young Partner, Head of Finance Performance Improvement Services in the CIS, adds: "Our market positioning recognizes the hard work we put into servicing the best clients, growing the most professional Advisory team and achieving superior blend of international expertise and local knowledge. The success comes through our relentless effort to always find the most practical solutions that help companies improve their business."
