EY global elects first female boss

EY global has elected Janet Truncale as its first female boss.

The incoming global chair and CEO joined the Big 4 firm as an intern 33 years ago (in 1991)!

She is in fact the first global chief of all the Big 4 firms, and will take up the top job on 1 July 2024, succeeding Carmine Di Sibio.

She also beat British partner Andy Balwin, who was an early favourite, to the top slot.

Truncale said: ā€œI am absolutely honoured to have been chosen to lead EY ā€“ an organisation Iā€™m proud to have bene a part of for more than 30 years.ā€

We will have to wait until next summer to discover if Trunacle wants to resurrect the spin-off plans that were abandoned last April.
