How Adam is building a better working world

I am proud of EY's commitment to advising governments and other public sector entities on ways to fund essential services, achieve sustainable debt levels, raise revenues and control costs.

It has been an incredible privilege to work alongside these critical entities as they reform operations and develop multi-year growth and economic development opportunities.
