EY has bolstered its UK Strategy team with the appointment of a new Advisory Partner. Consulting industry stalwart Silvia Rindone arrives with the Big Four giant from Capgemini Consulting, where she was most recently the leader of its Business Model Transformation Practice.

As the UK braces for the implications of Brexit after March 2019, strategy consultants are expecting a boom in demand. As companies look to negate the climate of uncertainty which has descended on the UK economy, they will most likely turn to these consultants to help come up with plans to improve their outcomes. In anticipation of this spike in work, Big Four firm EY has appointed Silvia Rindone as an Advisory Partner in its Strategy team in the UK.

Rindone is a consulting industry veteran, having accrued more than 20 years of experience in helping the world’s foremost retail and consumer products companies to develop and execute commercial strategy. She also specialised in business performance initiatives, having worked on them for clients across Europe and globally. These have involved revitalising channel and category strategies, transforming product portfolios, and developing and implementing winning operating models in a digital world.

She spent just over a year as a Senior Director there, following a five-year engagement with Deloitte UK. This was her second stint with the Big Four firm, where she held the role of Director, Strategy before moving on to A&M. Prior to this, she also worked for Kurt Salmon, which is now part of Accenture Strategy.

In 2012, Silvia Rindone was awarded the prize for “Strategy Consultant of the year” by the Management Consultancy Association. She holds a Master’s degree in Economics from Universita’ Luigi Bocconi in Milan, Italy. She now takes up the position of Partner for Consumer Product & Retail at EY.

Commenting on her appointment, Rindone said, “I joined EY because of the culture, the entrepreneurial spirit at the firm and the talented and dynamic team of people I would get to work with. I am also very excited about helping to drive growth in the firm’s Advisory practice. My focus will be working on business transformation with FTSE 100 and 250 consumer goods and retail clients in the UK and across the globe. I am looking forward to advising my clients to help shape their future and capitalise on the numerous transformational growth opportunities in a rapidly evolving digital environment.”
