Ankita Mirchandani

Principal, Strategy and Transactions, Ernst & Young LLP

New Yorker. 2018 Working Mother of the Year Award.

Ankita is a partner in the Strategy and Transactions (SaT) practice of Ernst & Young LLP. She has more than 17 years of professional services experience advising Fortune 500 companies on complex M&A transactions spanning across sell and separate and buy and integrate solutions.  In addition to her client serving and markets role, she leads the SaT Center of Excellence Team in the US.

Ankita has recently advised and led several multi-billion dollar complex global divestitures for our clients.

She is a chartered accountant and completed her MBA from the Indian School of Business in 2005. Ankita worked at an EY member firm in India in the Financial Services Advisory practice and transferred to the US office in 2009, where she now works in the SaT service line.

How Ankita is building a better working world

In addition to serving clients, Ankita piloted the Nucleus for Excellence in Strategic Transformations (NEST) program in 2016, designed to strengthen EY-Parthenon’s client service delivery model. It challenged where and how work gets done by exploring client-serving opportunities that can be done at the US firm with limited presence at client sites.

What was originally conceived as a solution for retaining high-performing working mothers has now extended to be a true center of excellence for all employees to build subject-matter experience with the added benefit of flexibility. The program under Ankita’s leadership has grown to 50+ employees with hubs in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston and Atlanta. Ankita continues to challenge the norms to create a better working world.
