EY Partners Liz Bingham and Patricia Jackson have been named as top ‘100 Women to Watch’, in a new report released by Cranfield University.

The annual report is in its fourth year and seeks to recognise influential women who are currently on the executive committees of FTSE listed institutions, charitable organisations and major financial and professional services firms, who are poised and ready for Board positions.

Liz and Patricia’s route to success

Having started her career straight from school over 25 years ago, Liz Bingham is now a member of EY’s leadership team in the UK and Ireland. She is responsible for the firm’s employer brand strategy as it relates to its people, clients, and the communities in which it operates. Liz says the best piece of advice she has ever received came from her mum, who said that ‘if you aim for the moon then you might hit the top of a tree’. Wise words: Liz’s latest achievement follows hot on the heels of her success in BBC Radio Four’s Women’s Hour Power List and at the CBI First Women Awards and the Women in Banking and Finance awards.

Patricia Jackson is an economist and started her career at the Bank of England. She now leads EY’s Prudential Financial Regulatory Advice business across Europe, Middle East, India and Asia (EMEIA). She is an Adjunct Professor at Imperial College and a Trustee of the Centre for Economic Policy Research and Council Member of SUERF. She has over 35 years of banking and markets experience and was instrumental in building EY’s banking risk and regulatory practice.

Inspiring role models

Commenting on their success, EY’s UK Managing Partner, Steve Varley commented: “To have two of our senior partners recognised in the 100 Women to Watch list is a tremendous achievement. Liz and Patricia have long been inspirational role models for our people in the firm, but these latest accolades will enable them to share their success stories to help inspire and guide women far beyond our office walls.”
