One of Scotland’s top deal makers is to join EY as partner to lead and expand its corporate finance team.
Ally Scott will become the head of EY Scotland’s transaction advisory services practice in September after an 11-year stint growing the Barclays Corporate Banking brand in Scotland, latterly as its regional head and managing director.
“Scotland has a strong nucleus of growing and progressive organisations and as we navigate current economic uncertainties the right advice and strategic planning will be even more important for business than ever,” said Scott.
“I look forward to helping transform EY’s participation in the corporate finance market developing a leading, full-service team, with ambitions to grow significantly during the next three years, including an increase in the number of partners and directors.”
A Barclays spokesperson said: “Ally has been a great asset to Barclays and has helped to grow and develop our market leading client service. He leaves Barclays with our best wishes.”
