EY has appointed an Associate Partner to the firm’s Newcastle leadership team. Stephanie Beaumont has been promoted to the role from within the firm.

Michael Scoular, Office Managing Partner for EY in the North East, commented, “Stephanie’s expertise and leadership will strengthen our footprint in the North East. Her promotion demonstrates EY’s continued commitment to investing in our people.”

The appointment is part of a wider growth plan for EY in Newcastle and across the region. EY’s UK & Ireland wing is set to spend £75 million on beefing up its consulting wing throughout 2022. More than half of the new roles will be based outside of London. This will see EY look to grow its teams throughout cities including Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Birmingham, as well as Newcastle.
