How Marcel is building a better working world

“’Protect a better working world’: This claim stands for our self-image as EY Defense to offer our customers in Europe the best EY service and thus to make our society (again) defensible. Thankfully, this allows me to continue within EY what has guided me since my childhood experiences of German reunification and why I serve our community both as an officer and in an honorary role: standing up for a free and peaceful Europe.”
