Ernst & Young Names Julie Boland as Chair and MP for the U.S.


New York-based EY (FY20 net revenue of $13.6 billion) has named Julie Boland as U.S. chair and MP, and EY Americas MP, effective July 1. She succeeds Kelly Grier, who has served these roles since 2018, and is retiring after a 30-year career with the firm.

“Julie is a purpose-driven leader and helps our people grow and develop in their careers – all while advancing our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion and fostering a culture of belonging,” says Grier. “She is known for emphasizing the importance of quality as a priority for EY teams, and has an exceptional record of growth, client service and sector leadership.”

Boland has served as U.S.-Central Region Vice Chair since 2018. She previously served as OMP of the Cleveland office, as well as senior advisory partner and global client-serving partner on some of the firm’s largest clients. She is also a member of the U.S. executive committee, the Americas operating executive, the global practice group and the global accounts committee.

In her new roles, Boland will lead the EY U.S. firm and the EY Americas geographic area, which together represent more than $21.2 billion in revenues and more than 81,000 people in member firms in 31 countries. She will also lead the U.S. executive committee, Americas operating executive and join the EY global executive committee, which sets the firm’s global strategy and agenda.

“We are committed to building a better working world by empowering and inspiring our people to realize their true potential, and I look forward to building on the significant legacy and strong foundation built by all our partners and our people,” says Boland.
