As the government and public sector looks for creative and robust solutions to tackle today’s most pressing issues, EY announced today that Halo Management Consulting has joined the firm, bolstering EY’s Government & Public Sector services team in Canada.

“Like most organizations today, the government and public sector is facing pressure to transform,” says Kirsten Tisdale, EY Canada’s Government & Public Sector leader. “Things like harnessing new technologies, building more resilient infrastructures and managing macroeconomic and geopolitical shifts all require creative and robust solutions. We couldn’t be more excited to combine our trusted EY experience with Halo’s proven future-forward approach, to deliver agile teams and uncompromising solutions to help the government and public sector chart the course forward.”

Halo President, Leigh Harris, agrees. “EY has deep knowledge of the government and public sector here in Canada, drawing on a wide net of experience around the globe. Together, we’ll work tirelessly with clients, looking at the big picture of the world around them, to achieve real and enduring results.”

Beyond their team of savvy, connected, creative thinkers, Halo’s commitment to consulting with confidence, conviction and a conscience – including a big focus on contributing to their broader community – resonates with EY’s own purpose of building a better working world.

“Right in our nation’s capital, we’re opening the door to an entirely new set of possibilities for all of us,” adds Tisdale.
