LONDON, May 18, 2016 /CNW/ -- EY announces that Steve Krouskos has been appointed EY Global Vice Chair – Transaction Advisory Services (TAS), effective from 1 July 2016.
Based at EY's global headquarters in London, Steve will be responsible for leading a team of more than 13,000 professionals worldwide. He will look to ensure the delivery of high-quality services to help organizations achieve their strategic transactions and capital management goals in line with EY's purpose of building a better working world.
Carmine Di Sibio, EY Global Managing Partner – Client Service, says:
"TAS is one of the fastest growing service lines at EY. I am confident with Steve's appointment our clients will benefit from his breadth of experience and he will continue building on the success he achieved in his previous roles. This high-caliber appointment will help us extend our leading position within many markets globally."
Steve joined EY in 2002 as a direct admit partner from PwC. Since 2013, he held the position of Deputy Global Vice Chair – TAS. Prior to 2013, he also held leadership positions in EY's Americas and the United States TAS practices. Steve has more than 25 years of experience in mergers and acquisitions (M&A)-related work and has advised many large corporate and private equity clients on numerous multibillion dollar international transactions.
Steve Krouskos, EY Global Vice Chair-elect – TAS, says: "I look forward to continuing to maintain exceptional client service and further improve how we help our clients strategically manage their capital and investment strategies. We have achieved a great deal in the past several years, including TAS' best-ever revenue results globally. We continue to focus on helping our clients navigate a changing business landscape in which emerging trends, such as digital and data analytics will be key elements in capital allocation and M&A strategies."
Steve is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and received both his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Accounting from the University of Florida.
He succeeds Pip McCrostie, who retires from EY on 30 June to pursue a non-executive director career.
"I would like to thank Pip for her exceptional leadership of the TAS business over the past eight years," says Di Sibio. "Under Pip's strategic direction, TAS delivered outstanding results despite prolonged depression in the M&A market in the wake of the financial crisis and has become the market leader globally."
