Big 4 firm Ernst & Young (EY) has announced the appointment of Tim Tasker as MP of its Seattle office.
Tasker will be responsible for maintaining high-performing client-serving teams, developing EY’s people, fostering a strong culture of exceptional client service, and furthering strong relationships with community, government and business leaders in Seattle.
Tasker has more than 27 years of experience providing audit services to public and private companies, including extensive experience working with entrepreneurs and multinational growth companies and their leadership teams. He has worked with some of the most recognizable technology and life sciences companies in the Pacific Northwest and around the world, and has led several successful IPOs, mergers and acquisitions and debt financings. Tasker succeeds Dan Smith, who will focus exclusively on the firm’s Seattle-based market-leading technology client before he retires in 2018, after 38 years with the firm.
During his tenure at EY, Tasker also has served as the program director for Entrepreneur Of The Year® in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to his leadership at the firm, Tasker is passionate about helping young people prepare for and succeed in the global market through entrepreneurship education and financial literacy.
“It’s truly an exciting time to take on this role and to lead the firm’s Seattle practice. The entrepreneurial community and the financing environment are flourishing here, and the strength of our technology ecosystem is palpable,” Tasker says.
