Consumer Products & Retail

The consumer products and retail industry is out of balance

Companies are failing to keep pace with changing consumer needs. Complexity is spiraling out of control. New business models are disrupting the old certainties. The levers that power growth are broken.

Those that over depend on cost efficiencies to boost profits and satisfy shareholders risk irrelevance. They must address long-term structural change by tilting the balance back towards profitable growth.

At EY, we’ll help you find and hold on to the point of balance that ignites performance in your business. We'll do that by asking better questions. Those questions will reveal better responses to disruptive market change and innovative strategies that put you ahead of the competition.

We can ask better questions, and then collaborate with you to implement the answers, because we combine a deeper and broader range of insights, perspectives, capabilities and experience. Our highly integrated, global network of assurance, advisory and tax specialists includes 26,000 people focused on your industry, supported by a rich ecosystem of alliance partners.

Wherever you are in the world, project by project, market by market, we will build a better working world together.

EY becomes gold sponsor of the Network of Executive Women (NEW)

EY is now gold sponsor of the Network of Executive Women (NEW) — an association aimed at recognizing and supporting women leaders in the retail, consumer goods and services industries. The sponsorship will allow for EY CP professionals to participate in local and national events throughout 20 active regions in the US and Canada.

Kathy Gramling, Advisory Partner in EY Chicago, has been an active member of NEW for over two decades and will lead the relationship with NEW. Currently, Kathy is the co-chair of the Events Committee and a regional board member for the Chicago chapter, one of the largest in the NEW network. 

“I am excited for the opportunity to expand our relationship with NEW on the national level — especially as NEW and EY share the common goal of ensuring women are more equally represented in the executive ranks,” shares Kathy.

At EY, we are keen to accelerate women’s progress in the workplace. This recognition thus ties closely with our “Women. Fast forward.” initiative. Our endeavor is to create effective internal and external programs focused on women’s advancement and leadership around the world.  

Similarly, EY supports the LEAD Network (Leading Executives Advancing Diversity), a European association that aims to attract, retain and advance women in the retail and consumer goods industry through education, leadership and business development.
