125 jobs to be created in Pima County

Ernst & Young LLP announced today it has opened a national executive support center in Tucson, Arizona. The new center will create more than 125 jobs in the area with a focus on executive administrative support and creative graphics and digital services.

The firm has selected downtown Tucson for the support center and will operate in a temporary space until the permanent location is identified and made ready in the fall. The layout will be part of the EY organization’s global “EY@Work” initiative, which features modern office space supported by the latest technology and environmental standards.

“We’re excited to be locating in downtown Tucson, and our new space will be a great environment for our talented Tucson employees. It’s designed to enhance the way we work in the digital world and enable flexibility and collaboration,” said Brent Summers, Enterprise Support Services leader for Ernst & Young LLP. “In today’s work environment we are seeing more and more mobile executives, and this center will further enhance our ability to improve business support operations in central locations.”

Downtown Tucson has undergone a transformation over the past decade. According to Pima County, there has been more than $1 billion in public and private investment, including new towers, employers, restaurants, cultural amenities and a new streetcar that connects downtown to the University of Arizona. It’s a center of business innovation, serving as the home for Startup Tucson, Pima County Public Library’s IdeaSpace, and with nearby University of Arizona Eller College of Management ranked as one of the top three programs for entrepreneurship.

“Pima County’s unique combination of diverse talent and affordability attracted us to this market,” said Summers. “Downtown Tucson has recently undergone a great revitalization, and we look forward to being a part of this vibrant, growing community.”

“It’s always a good day when a company as prestigious as EY chooses to locate in your community and create more than 125 jobs. I offer them my warmest welcome and hope they enjoy working in our vibrant and bustling downtown. I’m proud of the assistance County staff has provided EY in its decision to come here and wish them a long and prosperous future in Tucson,” said Sharon Bronson, chair of the Pima County Board of Supervisors.

Ernst & Young LLP has been in the Arizona market for more than 58 years, and currently has more than 275 employees in the state. The firm’s Arizona-based practice office will remain in Phoenix located at 2 North Central, Suite 2300.
