The new EY partner will combine his service to clients with the coordination of all the activities of EY’s offices in Spain, except for Madrid and Barcelona.
Pablo will also be a member of the Management Committee formed by the firm’s chairman, Federico Linares, as well as the partners responsible for the firm’s business lines and transversal services (Assurance, Lawyers, Consulting, Strategy & Transactions, Financial Services, People Advisory Services, Markets, EY Transforma and EY Parthenon) and the partners responsible for the Corporate areas (Operations, Talent, Brand, Marketing & Communications, and Independence).
Pablo Sanz, who has more than 20 years of experience in the sector, comes from Deloitte, where he was responsible for the legal practice in Spain. During his extensive experience in the firm, which began in 2007, he has participated in a multitude of projects for the advice and planning of tax aspects in both national and multinational groups. Previously, at the beginning of his professional career at Arthur Andersen Asesores Legales y Tributarios -currently Garrigues-, he had the opportunity to advise mainly financial and insurance companies. His core practice area is the family business, the driving force behind EY’s growth and where Sanz has close ties cultivated throughout his professional career.
A graduate in Economics and Business Studies from the University of Deusto, Pablo Sanz is a lecturer at this institution and a regular speaker at various forums related to legal and tax matters. He is also a director of the APD in the Northern Area (Association for Management Progress), where he develops an activity notably positioned in the family business segment.
For the new partner of the firm, Pablo Sanz, “it is an honour to be part of the great team of professionals that EY has, both locally and globally. I take on the challenge of offering an even more coordinated and integrated vision of the firm’s offices in Spain with the utmost enthusiasm, and I am confident that I can contribute all the knowledge and experience I have acquired throughout my professional career.”
In the words of Federico Linares, chairman of EY: “the incorporation of Pablo Sanz reflects EY’s commitment to the value of the activity of all our offices. The contribution of each of them is key at this time to face the challenges and opportunities posed by the definitive exit of this crisis in all areas and geographies. Their arrival also corroborates our strategy of attracting talent as a key axis to continue creating value in the long term.”
EY has a total of 14 offices in Spain, located in Barcelona, Bilbao, La Coruña, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Madrid, Málaga, Palma de Mallorca, Pamplona, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Vigo, Sevilla, Valencia, Valladolid and Zaragoza.
