New York-based Big 4 firm EY has appointed Esi Akinosho as new OMP of the firm’s Houston office. She succeeds Bill Strait, who has held the position since 2017 and has been named the new deputy vice chair of assurance for EY Americas.
Akinosho has 28 years of experience in risk advisory services and was previously the internal audit leader for EY Global Advisory. As OMP, she will lead a Houston office of nearly 1,800 professionals and will be responsible for expanding the firm’s market position, connecting with the community and fostering a supportive and inclusive culture.
“Esi is a proven and effective leader who is deeply committed to the Houston community and our firm’s purpose of building a better working world,” says Frank Mahoney, EY US-West Regional MP. “She has outstanding experience to continue driving exceptional service for our clients, growth across our practice and opportunities for our people.”
