EY today announced the appointment of Jamie Miller as Global CFO, and CFO of the proposed new public entity.
Miller has substantial public company experience including as CFO of both Cargill and the General Electric (GE) Company. Her deep financial management experience and global outlook bring a valuable skill set to EY now and as it moves forward with its proposed transformation.
Carmine Di Sibio, EY Global Chairman and CEO stated, “We are thrilled to have Jamie as part of our team. Her skill set, experience in the public markets and business depth will be a crucial asset for our organization as we undergo this transition”.
The selection of Miller is another step in the separation process outlined last year. EY is moving forward in a thoughtful and deliberate manner, making strong progress on the path to partner votes. This bold move to separate the organization will enable EY to embrace the changing landscape, build businesses that redefine the future of the profession, create exciting new opportunities, and deliver greater long-term value for EY people, clients and communities.
“I am excited to join EY. I believe in the core values, vision and potential of the future company. It is a unique opportunity to be part of what will be one of the most disruptive strategies in any industry this decade,” said Miller.
Julie Boland, EY US Chair and Managing Partner and Americas Area Managing Partner and who was recently selected Global Chair and CEO of the proposed AssureCo entity, added, “EY is proud to announce that Jamie is joining EY as its global CFO. She has a rich portfolio of experience, including working in the Big Four and the CFO of both private and public companies. Her experience is very relevant, and she will bring great insight into the split that EY is working through.”
During the next several weeks, EY plans to name additional leaders to a range of positions in the two proposed post-split organizations that will result if the voting by partners is successful.
Jamie Miller joined Cargill in June 2021 as Corporate Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. She was appointed Head of Corporate Strategy in April 2022 and is a member of Cargill’s Executive team.
Throughout her career, Miller has led through challenge and transformation while focusing on people, innovation, simplification and accelerating performance and growth. She has leveraged technology to increase competitiveness, and has extensive experience in effective, transparent communication with stakeholders and investors, and in managing complex M&A, audit and risk.
Before joining Cargill, Jamie served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for GE. She began her tenure at GE in 2008 as Vice President, Controller and Chief Accounting Officer, and went on to become GE’s Chief Information Officer where she led the company’s global information technology strategy, services and operations. Jamie also served as President and CEO of GE Transportation, a global technology leader and supplier for the rail, mining, marine, stationary power and drilling industries.
Prior to joining GE, Jamie was Senior Vice President and Controller of WellPoint (now Anthem), managing investor relations, controllership, financial planning and analysis, tax and financial systems for the company. She was also a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
