Singapore, 9 July 2013 - EY has today announced that 509 of its people will become partners across the member firms of its organisation. Of these, 80 are from the Asia-Pacific.

Mark Weinberger, Global Chairman and CEO of EY says: “I would like to congratulate all our new partners for 2013. We have exciting times ahead of us with a big ambition for our organisation. Our new partners have a vital role to play in leading EY on our journey.

“I’m also pleased that 26% of our new partners - 131 - are women. It’s our highest percentage intake yet and represents a steady increase from 19% in 2008. But we still have so much more to do. We will continue to intensify efforts around building high performing teams by developing our people’s ability to lead inclusively and by addressing the importance, and advantages, of greater diversity and inclusiveness." 40% of the admitted partners in Asia-Pacific are women.

John Ferraro, Global Chief Operating Officer of EY says: “These admissions follow a rigorous selection process which recognizes the significant contribution each individual has made to the success of EY, and are a strong vote of confidence in their leadership potential.”
