EY appoints Janet Dawson as Global and UK&I Government & Public Sector Assurance Leader
30 June 2016
EY announces the appointment of Janet Dawson as its Global and UK&I Government & Public Sector Assurance practice leader. In Janet’s role, she will lead a team of more than 220 professionals in the UK&I and 2,600 globally who audit the financial and non-financial performance of government and public sector organizations.
Janet has more than 20 years of experience working with clients across health care and central and local government. She has led a range of projects including external audits of NHS trusts and London boroughs, in addition to working with NHS England on the introduction of clinical commissioning groups. Prior to joining EY, she led PwC’s UK Health team.
Bjorn Conway, EY Head of UK&I Government & Public Sector, says:
“Janet brings a wealth of experience in assurance and this is an area where we expect to see significant growth. With public finances under pressure all over the world, Janet will help our clients to better demonstrate that public money is being spent effectively.”
Dawson says: “This is an exciting opportunity for me to join and lead a dynamic business. An uncertain global economic outlook, increasing regulatory and business risks, and continued risk of fraud in certain regions is fuelling demand for greater accountability and transparency. I want to ensure that EY is best placed to help support public sector organisations as they seek to improve their governance and accountability as well as their impact on taxpayers and citizens.”
