EY-Parthenon Partner, Strategy and Transactions, Ernst & Young LLP

Senior finance leader at EY-Parthenon. EY boomerang with over 20 years of experience in high-growth, leveraged businesses. Mom of two with Ukrainian family. Enjoys skiing and hockey outside of work.

Nicola is a partner with EY-Parthenon in London. She has worked in CFO Advisory and has led finance functions, as well as delivering complex transactions and transformations to create value in both PE-backed and listed businesses.

Her broad strategic and operational skill set includes mergers and acquisitions, integration and carve-outs, finance transformation and restructuring, based on a foundation of core finance capabilities.

How Nicola is building a better working world

Nicola is an EY boomerang who returned to EY to be a female role model and drive greater diversity for the next generation. She works to be the role model she didn’t have in her first stint with EY and be part of driving change further and faster. As a working mother in a dual-career family, Nicola shares how she makes it work and the times she hasn’t made it work. In scaling the finance competency, she wants to focus on a 50-50 gender balance across all levels, especially female attrition at the manager grade.
