Ernst & Young, a global consulting firm, has announced the appointment of Janet Truncale as the next Global Chair and CEO, effective from July 1, 2024.
Janet will succeed Carmine Di Sibio, the current Global Chair and CEO, who will step down after 11 years of service. Under his leadership, the company made strong commitments towards sustainability, including the appointment of its first Chief Sustainability Officer to be carbon-negative by 2025.
Janet has been serving the company for the last 33 years and currently holds the position of Regional Managing Partner for Americas Financial Services Organization (FSO). Assuming her new role, she will lead a diverse team of more than 14,000 professionals.
In her previous roles, Janet served as the Managing Partner for Americas FSO Assurance, where she improved audit quality and led the strategy, operations, and management of 3,000 professionals. She began her career with the company in 1996.
Welcoming Janet to her new role, Di Sibio stated, “Janet is an exceptional leader with a strong foundation in serving clients across all EY’s businesses. She is a great choice to lead our organization through the next chapter of its history. I truly believe Janet will inspire EY people and partners through her strong emphasis on culture and her deep experience.”
Janet added, “It will truly be an honour to lead this amazing organization. The work we do in creating opportunities for our people and clients, as well as our role in the capital markets, defines EY as an organization, and I couldn’t be prouder to have the opportunity. I am inspired by the example Carmine has set, instilling an intent to be professional leaders, focusing on staying ahead of the curve in technology, and most of all, personifying EY values.”
