Ernst & Young Appoints New Chairman

6 November 2006

Ernst & Young Appoints New Chairman

With more than thirty years of service to Ernst & Young, internationally and in New Zealand, Gordon Fulton has been appointed Chairman of the Board. He replaces outgoing Chairman Michael Stanley.

Gordon is a Partner and Professional Practice Director of the Assurance Practice for Ernst & Young New Zealand. He has been a member of the Board for three years.

Gordon moved to New Zealand nine years ago, following a two-year posting in Cleveland, USA, directing the development of computer-based tools and audit techniques for the worldwide Ernst &Young firm.

Prior to his internal assignment in Cleveland, he had been an audit partner in the London office, directing a large client portfolio. Gordon’s financial sector specialisation includes banking and fund management.

“We’ve got great people at Ernst &Young – and it’s our people who enable us to succeed.

“As a firm, our aim is to provide seamless, consistent, high-quality service. We work hard to ensure that our portfolio of services continues to meet the needs of our clients. Across our business we have a powerful resource of skills and knowledge with which we assist our clients to succeed in a highly competitive market place.

“New Zealand is also a good country in which to do business. Because it’s relatively small, it’s relatively personal,” says Gordon.

“It is a great honour to serve as Chairman. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Michael Stanley, my predecessor. As a result of his leadership, the New Zealand firm today is composed of people who are passionate about our clients and single-minded about delivering quality in everything we do.”
