Transaction Real Estate Advisory Services, Dubai
Libby Tillmann, Manager, Transaction Real Estate Advisory Services, Dubai
What do you enjoy about working at EY? I joined EY after working at another Big Four organization and I have continually been impressed by the forward-thinking nature of the partners. EY invests in innovation and has a much more entrepreneurial environment.
What do you like most about your role? Our clients consistently approach us with challenging questions and our partners pull together great team members to provide innovative solutions. I love that EY provides us with the opportunity to work collaboratively with teams across all competencies as well as people from our other offices around the world. This creates an environment where I’m continuously learning through collaboration.
What has been a career highlight for you? While being employed by the office in Dubai I had the opportunity to work on a project with the EY office in New York, which was an outstanding learning experience. We continue to work together on international assignments and have plans to grow certain avenues of the real estate business together.
How would you describe your colleagues? The people I work with are some of the smartest I’ve ever met. The questions our clients ask us are challenging and engaging, and there are many opportunities to learn from different teams, clients and colleagues!
How do you feel supported as a woman? EY provides equal opportunity to all people. I’ve never once felt that being a woman has hindered my career. There are strong female role models in leadership roles who have proven that having a family and being successful are not mutually exclusive. Flexible working has allowed me to maintain my personal well-being and spend time with my extended family who live overseas.
