I believe the organization has made an exceptional choice, and Carmine is the right EY Global Chairman and CEO in these transformative times.”

Di Sibio added, “I am honored to be chosen to lead this great organization, which I have been part of for over 33 years. The role we play in the capital markets and the work each and every one of the 270,000 EY people do every day to create a better working world are things of which I’m very proud. It’s been a great opportunity to work with Mark and the leadership team on the development and execution of our Vision 2020 strategy over the past six years. I’m excited to build on the significant legacy and strong foundation we have here at EY.”

Weinberger established the global organization’s purpose of ‘building a better working world’ during his tenure, as he guided the evolution of EY into a purpose-led organization. Within the organization, Weinberger created a culture of high-performing teams and focused on the development of EY people. He also championed increasing diversity at all levels and creating a more inclusive culture, increasing the number of partners who are women and from emerging markets, improving retention rates and establishing a more diverse EY Global Executive.
