London, June 1, 2011
Ernst & Young, a leading global professional services organisation, has appointed Maria Pinelli as the new global vice chair for its Strategic Growth Markets (SGM) practice.
She will succeed Greg Ericksen, who retires on June 30 after 35 years with Ernst & Young.
With more than 20 years of experience, Maria has in-depth knowledge of the needs and issues of companies experiencing rapid growth. Throughout her career, she has supported clients with acquisitions, due diligence, financing and IPOs.
Maria has also acquired significant knowledge of the global capital markets, having led over 20 IPOs in Canada, China, the UK and the USA. In her new role she will head E&Y's practice dedicated to entrepreneurial and high growth companies.
Maria will be attending the 11th Ernst & Young World Entrepreneur of the Year Awards which will be held this Saturday in Monte Carlo.
Ernst & Young also announced that it has extended its ongoing commitment and relationship with the Network for Teacher Entrepreneurship (NFTE) in the United States, to another nine countries around the world.
Ernst & Young supports NFTE by providing a scholarship for each of its 16 US programs and plans to replicate this in Belgium, China, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, the Netherlands, New Zealand and South Africa.-TradeArabia News Service
