01 October 2019 Consultancy.uk

Big Four professional services firm EY has appointed a new Associate Partner, Alan Maudsley, to lead a dedicated team in Scotland. The banking sector expert will head a team focusing on working with private mid-market clients.

There are more than 270,000 EY professionals in over 150 countries around the world. Earlier in the year, EY announced a wave of 733 promotions across its global operations. As the firm looks to strengthen its relations with businesses in Scotland, EY also launched a new dedicated team focusing on private mid-market clients (PMM), designed to originate conversations and bring solutions to life for the business community, and work in a way that makes life easier for them.

Scotland now has a higher rate of medium and large private enterprise businesses than the UK as a whole, with its number of private sector employers at its highest level. EY’s new PMM wing is aimed at catering to the tailored approach required by clients, who prefer a single local point of contact that can build trust and a deep knowledge of the company.

Made up of Director Adam Broatch, and Assistant Directors Nicola Pidgeon, Ashleigh Mackay, and Richard Rainey, the team will be led by newly appointed Associate Partner Alan Maudsley. Bringing extensive knowledge of the Scottish business landscape to the role, his appointment and the creation of the team are part of EY’s on-going investment to grow its Scottish workforce and deliver on ambitious growth plans.

Maudsley was previously Head of Corporate Development at Barclays, and is well-connected in the local business community, bringing extensive knowledge of the Scottish business landscape and experience of working with a wide range of fast growth companies across different sectors. Prior to this, Maudsley spent 15 years with RBS, where he latterly became Head of Corporate Development, West of Scotland.

Speaking on his new role, Maudsley said, “Our new dedicated team in Scotland is designed to originate conversations and bring solutions to life for the business community and work in a way that makes life easier for them. I’m really excited about being able to draw on my network and the knowledge and innovation of a global firm to help Scotland’s mid-market businesses. It’s an exciting time to join EY and I look forward to building this team into a successful model that will be rolled out across other EY regions.”

Scotland is fast becoming a key region for the top table of the professional services industry. EY will be seeking to boost its Scottish headcount by 25% over the coming year to meet its growth plans. EY’s Big Four audit and advisory rival PwC recently saw its headcount surpass 1,000 employees in Scotland, following a 13.4% hike in graduate recruitment numbers over the summer. With demand for digital transformation and preparation advice, PwC brought on-board almost 100 graduates before September 2019.
