Mark comments, "Every day, every EY person is part of building a better
working world - for our clients, our communities, and our families. We
believe that everything we do - every audit, every tax return, every
advisory opportunity, every interaction with a client or colleague -
contributes to building a better working world.
"We know that building a better working world is an ambitious objective
but it is an incredibly important aspiration and will be front and
center of everything we do as an organization."
Mark continues, "In a better working world trust increases, so capital
flows smoothly and investors make informed decisions. Businesses grow
sustainably, employment rises, consumers spend and businesses invest in
their communities. More than just growth, a better working world
harnesses and develops talent in all its forms and encourages
"We understand our obligation to look beyond our self interest and
engage with the world. We use our global reach and our relationships
with clients, governments and other stakeholders to create positive
change. We do this through who we are and what we stand for and most
importantly we back it up by how we act."
Our values define who we are.
As Mark explains, "our values are the fundamental beliefs of our
organization and remain the bedrock of our culture. They are one of the
most important sources of our organizational strength. We encourage and
expect our people to demonstrate integrity, respect and teaming, have
the energy, enthusiasm and courage to lead and build relationships
based on doing the right thing."
Simplifying our name and redesigning our logo
At the same time, EY is taking the opportunity to simplify its name and
redesign its logo.
As Mark explains, "From 1 July we will be called EY. Shortening our name
will provide consistency and ease of use for EY practices and clients
around the world. We have also redesigned our logo, reflecting our new
brand name clearly in the design. Our new brand name and logo
demonstrate clearly and boldly who we are and reflect the goal we have
recently set ourselves to be the number one brand in our profession.
Thank you to Jim Turley
Mark concludes, "I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of all
the people of EY to express our heartfelt appreciation to our outgoing
Chairman and CEO Jim Turley, for everything he has done for our

years of service to EY. I am committed to build on the strong
foundation he has created."
