Playing in the big leagues
Whoever said accountants are just pencil-pushers clearly hasn’t met EY alumni. The former EY professionals whose profiles follow are athletes and business leaders who have not only run marathons and played basketball but also managed some of the biggest and best-known sports teams in the country —and perhaps in the world. And again countering the stereotype, these executives say that the world of numbers has prepared them for sports in a way that perhaps no other discipline can. Whether it’s organizing events, managing finance, forming client relationships or improving customer service, accountants can, it seems, do it all.
