It has taken the bold leadership and countless contributions of people around the world to form the leading global organization EY is today. Our roots go back to the 19th century and our founders Arthur Young and Alwin C Ernst.

Arthur Young

EY - Who we are

Arthur Young was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He graduated in law, but became interested in banking and investment. In 1890, he moved to the US to pursue his career in accounting. In 1906, he formed an accounting firm, Arthur Young & Company, with his brother Stanley.

Alwin C Ernst

EY - Who we are

Alwin C Ernst was born in Cleveland, USA. After leaving school he worked as a bookkeeper. Then, in 1903, he and his brother Theodore started Ernst & Ernst, a small public accounting firm.

The innovators

EY - Who we are

Both Arthur Young and AC Ernst were innovators and appreciated the importance of quality in their work. Ernst pioneered the idea that accounting information could be used to make business decisions and make a difference to clients’ organizations. He inspired his people to deliver better service to clients. Young also positioned himself as a business advisor as much as an accountant.

The philosophy

EY - Who we are

Both men understood the importance of their people. In 1920, Ernst & Ernst’s operating philosophy stated: “The success of Ernst & Ernst depends wholly upon the character, ability and industry of the men and women who make up the organization.” Young supported the development of professionals. In the 1920s he originated a staff school and, in the 1930s, the firm was the first to recruit from university campuses.

Both firms were also quick to enter the global marketplace. As early as 1924, they allied with prominent British firms: Young with Broads Paterson & Co and Ernst with Whinney Smith & Whinney. These alliances were the first of many for both firms, which opened offices around the world to service their international clients.


EY - Who we are

AC Ernst and Arthur Young never met in life, but died within days of each other in 1948. However their philosophies lived on and, in 1989, were brought together when the firms they started combined to create Ernst & Young. The new organization quickly positioned itself on the leading edge of rapid globalization, new business technologies and continuous business change. Ernst & Whinney first adopts the tagline “Quality in everything we do” to describe an enduring value embedded throughout its work.

Ernst & Young underwent a number of changes in 2013. One of the biggest was our rebranding, when we adopted a new logo and tagline.

Dress code

Dress code is not only an essential part of our corporate culture but also an important feature of your personal brand. EY provides high-quality professional services to over 5,000 clients in the CIS, so the appearance of our employees distinguishes EY as a leader in the market. Everyone in EY is the “face of the company”, which is why we need your outfit to match our business standards.

We also have a "Jeans Friday" – on Fridays and before public holidays we can wear our favourite pair of jeans and we allow ourselves to put on something more informal in "business casual" style – of course, if you do not have any meetings with a client that day.

The dress code is required for everyone at EY, regardless of with whom they work – internal or external clients and colleagues.
