EY announced today that Shari Yocum and Niki Lee, co-founders of leading Human Resources M&A Advisory firm Tasman Consulting, have become principal members in the Ernst & Young LLP People Advisory Services (PAS) transactions practice.
Most members of the Tasman Consulting team are also joining the practice, says George Brooks, EY Americas PAS Leader.
“The addition of this team reflects the commitment of EY to this growing practice, providing leading PAS transactions client service in mergers, acquisitions, IPOs and divestitures,” Brooks says. “Our People Advisory Services team has worked shoulder to shoulder with Tasman as we each contributed to two significant transactions, and we look forward to offering our clients the added depth that the Tasman team brings.”
Silicon Valley-based Tasman Consulting launched in 2011 to bring together professionals with corporate human resources and M&A backgrounds to advise clients through the full life-cycle of all types of corporate transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, IPOs, joint ventures and restructuring, says Lee.
Service offerings include due diligence, operations integration, total rewards, organization design, talent strategy, HR operations and systems, change management, culture services and program management support.
Yocum and Lee worked together at Cisco Systems prior to forming Tasman. Yocum led the HR Mergers and Acquisitions organization and Lee was Director of Human Resources Mergers & Acquisitions.
