Ernst & Young has appointed a new Advisory leader for the 65-strong Advisory team of Scotland. Stephen Farrell also joined the firm as a partner, apart from the Advisory role.

The appointment of Farrell has added strength to the practice. The firm has already seen 10 new partners join the UK team throughout the whole of last year.

Ernst & Young is planning to be ambitious and has great growth plans. The firm expects to double the revenue originating from the Advisory over the next 3 years.

Ernst & Young is planning to reinstate its status in the large audit market, which has several new and enthusiastic firms coming up; it was said in a statement by a company spokesperson today.

Stephen Farrell specializes in performance improvement, business transformation, and assurance services. He was previously working for Mouchel Plc, where he held the position of managing director for the company’s international consulting business.

Farrell has more than 15 years of experience of working for the delivery and management of large and complex business transformation programmes. He has worked across many industry sectors including the government, life sciences, utilities and financial services.

When asked about his appointment at Ernst & Young, Farrell said that what attracted him to the firm was the ambition and vision of the Advisory team across the UK. He also said that the other reasons that made him join the firm easily were its reputation in the market and the depth of talent it had.

Harry Gaskell who is managing partner of UK & Ireland advisory services said in a statement that Farrell is an outstanding performer whose wealth of experience and knowledge is going to make him extremely valuable to the firm’s clients’ businesses.
