Ernst & Young Names New MP in Detroit

Angie Kelly

Angie Kelly is the new OMP for New York-based Ernst & Young (FY17 net revenue of $13 billion) in Detroit.

Kelly, the first female OMP for Detroit, is a 20-year EY veteran. She takes charge of the 700-employee office at a time when it has seen enormous growth, the firm announced.

Her predecessor, George Lenyo, increased the office’s headcount 40% and will continue in Detroit as a global coordinating partner for the automotive industry.

Kelly said she plans to build on Lenyo’s growth through mentorship and amplifying EY’s brand in the market, even as she continues to work with her clients. “I’m so proud of the culture that we have created within our office and proud of the clients we serve and the community we serve.”

Her appointment comes at a time when EY says it is working to increase diversity and inclusion in its workforce. It says it plans to create 100,000 professional job opportunities for women around the world by 2020.

Kelly, who started with the firm as an intern in 1998, said EY will provide advisory, audit, tax and transaction services to small private businesses, companies looking to go public, and 90% percent of the Fortune 1000 companies in Michigan.
