How Suzi is building a better working world

“My career has been spent in tax, which has given me an eye for detail; however, I have a huge passion for technology-enabled disruption across the whole professional services portfolio.

Partnering with the world’s largest technology companies, I am working with EY teams to drive reliable and scalable enterprise transformation resulting in the removal of inefficient data collection, an ability to analyze complex data sets and generate business insights in real-time, and the emergence of new regulatory compliance models.”
