These leadership promotions are part of over 50 promotions and progressions, which took effect from 1 October across the Channel Islands, reflecting EY’s continued focus on investing in their people and in the future growth of the firm.

Emily joined the tax team as a school leaver from Blanchelande College in 2010. Emily specialises in Guernsey tax, providing Guernsey tax compliance and advisory services to Guernsey companies, partnerships and high-net-worth individuals. She also leads the human capital team across the Channel Islands, which covers employment taxes and payroll services.

Daniel joined EY’s Jersey office in 2018, having previously worked in Uganda where he trained to become an accountant. He specialises in the audit of wealth and asset management clients, and banking and capital markets, working with clients in private, investment, retail and central banking. Daniel has been involved in a number of key initiatives in recent years, including the launch of EY Canvas, EY’s cloud based global audit platform; working with Social Impact entrepreneurs as part of a design thinking workshop programme to provide innovative solutions to support vulnerable communities affected by the pandemic; and as an advocate for addressing racial inequalities. The latter saw him form EY’s Channel Islands DE&I working party, which is focused on increasing mentorship and sponsorship of minority groups within the offices.

Andrew Dann, Managing Partner at EY in the Channel Islands, said; “I am delighted to welcome Emily and Daniel to the CI leadership team. Both have made significant contributions to EY over the years. Their promotions are a testament to their hard work, dedication and they have demonstrated their transformational leadership skills to serve EY’s clients while also building an inclusive and supportive culture. The experience Emily and Daniel bring to the leadership team will be invaluable to further drive EY’s NextWave strategy in the Channel Islands, which aims to deliver long-term value for EY people, clients and society.”
