It’s been 20 years since Ernst & Whinney and Arthur Young embarked on the path to becoming a single entity. The story of the merger that created EY is a study in leadership, innovation and entrepreneurial zeal.
To commemorate this anniversary, David O’Brien, EY’s partner in charge of the Americas Communications and Marketing group, recently talked with four of the firm’s former CEO/Chairmen to discuss their roles and recollections relating to this historic transformation.
These leaders were on the forefront of the accounting profession, saw the coming changes in the industry and guided their organizations toward a stronger future. It is thanks to their vision and dedication that EY is where it is today. Their stories are an insider’s telling of the history of the firm.
