Big 4 firm Ernst & Young announced that Jeremy Vaughan has been named the new OMP for Cincinnati, effective April 1.
Vaughan, who will succeed Julia Poston upon her upcoming retirement, will lead approximately 400 professionals in the Cincinnati office.
“With Julia at the helm, the firm established itself as a go-to resource in the Ohio Valley to address today’s business challenges. As Jeremy steps into his new role, we have full confidence he will continue to lead our clients and people through today’s transformative age,” says Julie Boland, EY vice chair and MP for the U.S. Central region. “Jeremy has a long history with our firm and is passionate about not only growing our local markets and industry sectors, but also the professional development of our people.”
Poston, who started her career in 1982 as a staff auditor, retires in June with a legacy that includes numerous leadership positions, including the Cincinnati/Dayton, Ohio, OMP, assurance leader for the firm’s Ohio Valley region and the Central Region Center for Board Matters leader, as well as being a member of the firm’s partners advisory council and other committees.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Cincinnati office and hope to further the significant and impactful initiatives Julia led,” Vaughan says. “Fostering a strong environment for professional development is extremely important to me and for the EY organization. It gives our employees the chance to continuously learn and grow in order to better serve our clients.”
Vaughan, based in Cincinnati since 2010, has deep experience in business transformation, restructuring and process improvement projects in the consumer sector. Vaughan is a leader in the EY organization’s U.S. and global consumer sector teams.
