Ernst & Young: Leslie Blair recognized for leadership by Consulting Magazine
October 15, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
Ernst & Young LLP announced that Leslie Brown Blair, West Sub-Area Advisory Managing Partner, has been named a winner of a 2012 Consulting magazine’s “Women Leaders in Consulting” award. As the West Sub-Area Advisory Managing Partner of Ernst & Young LLP, Blair’s leadership has resulted in her sub-area gaining the number one rankings for sales performance, revenue growth and profitability within Ernst & Young LLP, and in her personally being voted “best in class” by her colleagues for her exemplary and strategic leadership.
Blair first joined Ernst & Young LLP (then Ernst & Whinney) in 1989. She was named a partner in 1994. She played an instrumental role in developing the consulting practice of the Ernst & Young member firm in Belgium. Prior to rejoining Ernst & Young LLP in 2009, Blair spent over a decade leading major initiatives with Cap Gemini, Deloitte and Oracle.
She transformed the West Sub-Area’s go-to-market strategy and operating model and then led the change, modeling the new way by engaging with her teams in the market – to sell and deliver differentiated client value across many significant transformational engagements.
“I’m honored and humbled by this recognition and incredibly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to do what I love,” she said. “I rejoined Ernst & Young because I was so enthralled by the opportunity to build a consulting practice and I am indebted to the wonderful colleagues and clients who have made this experience such an exciting and successful endeavor.”
