This summer, Steve Payne was appointed EY Americas Vice Chair—Consulting, a position that oversees more than 20,000 consultants focused on creating long-term value for clients through sustainable, inclusive growth. The role is also responsible for cultivating talent and building high-performing teams to deliver exceptional experiences for EY people. Payne previously served as the Global Leader for the EY-Parthenon strategy consultancy as well as the Transaction Strategy and Execution Global Leader. He succeeds Hank Prybylski, who was named EY Global Vice Chair—Transformation. “I thrive on helping people and businesses achieve their full potential, and I’m thrilled to lead this dynamic practice of talented consultants as they collaborate with our clients to reframe their future,” says Payne. Payne has been advising top-tier institutions on operations management for more than 30 years. Drawing from extensive international experience in Europe and emerging markets in the Americas and Asia-Pacific, he has delivered working capital improvement programs for Fortune 100 clients. Prior to joining the firm in 2008, he was the CEO of a global boutique consulting firm that focused on helping companies improve cash flow from working capital via operational improvement. Consulting caught up with Payne a few weeks after his appointment to discuss his new role, the new normal for clients and a new outlook for the profession.
