EY Canada has announced that Alycia Calvert will be taking over as their new Chair and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Their former Chair and CEO, Jad Shimaly, will move on to be EY Global Managing Partner – Client Service.

 “The work EY does to ignite positive change, address complex issues, and advance social and economic growth in Canada and beyond is inspiring,” says Calvert. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to advance our purpose and create a lasting impact for our people, clients, and communities.”

“Alycia is a visionary with deep expertise on the risks and opportunities shaping the business agenda of Canada’s corporate sector,” shares Shimaly. “Her leadership and influence will deliver tremendous value for our people and clients, delivering innovative solutions that address today’s evolving issues.”

Calvert has been a part of EY for the last 25 years and was also a member of the EY Canada Executive Committee for 10 years. She was formerly EY Canada’s Chief operating officer, responsible for achieving long-term value and sustainable growth for the Canadian business across service lines, functions, and geographies. 

Previously, Calvert served as the Managing Partner for Markets and Accounts and was also the Managing Partner for the Tax practice. In 2018, she was recognized as a Fellow by CPA Ontario.

“All these moments have allowed us to build trust with our clients and people, and to strengthen our brand in the market as a truly distinctive multidisciplinary organization,” explains Shimaly. “I’m excited to continue on this journey — while bringing more Canada to the global stage.”
