PROFESSIONAL services firm Ernst & Young has named Mark Weinberger as global chief executive and chairman of the firm, which will officially relaunch its global brand this morning under the name EY.

Weinberger, 51, was previously Ernst & Young’s global and Americas head of tax.

The 51-year-old served as assistant secretary of the US Treasury (tax policy) under President George W Bush.

He was elected to the role in January but will take up the post today, as the firm unveils its new logo and a new tagline – Building a better working world.

“It is a privilege to lead this great organisation in these dynamic times and I’m looking forward to tackling the challenges ahead,” said Weinberger.
