Professional services organization Ernst and Young announced this week that Mark Weinberger has become global chairman and CEO. The organization also announced the adoption of EY as its global brand name and unveiled a new logo.
Weinberger, 51, has had a distinguished career with a track record of leadership both inside and outside of EY. He has previously served as the global and Americas head of tax and on the global and Americas executive. He has been a senior advisory partner for many of EY’s largest clients and also served on the global markets executive and global public policy committees. Weinberger was the assistant secretary of the U.S. Treasury (tax policy) under President George W. Bush and he was appointed to the U.S. Social Security Advisory Board by President Clinton.
In addition to simplifying its name, EY is adding adopting the tag line Building a better working world and taking the opportunity to redesign its logo.
“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,” Weinberger explains.
“From July 1, 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,” he adds.
EY refers to the global organization and may refer to one or more of the member firms of Ernst & Young Global Ltd., each of which is a separate legal entity.
