EY US has promoted Marcelo Bartholo, a more than 20-year veteran of the Big Four firm, to US East region vice chair. The Philadelphia-based leader officially took on the role on April 1, 2022.

Bartholo succeeds Richard Jeanneret, who will retire on July 1 after 39-year career. 

In his new role, Bartholo will oversee more than 14,000 professionals across 20 offices, addressing client business issues, talent attraction and retention, and driving growth in the US East region.

“Marcelo will build on the foundation of exceptional client service and innovation to lead the continued expansive growth of the region,” Julie Boland, US chair and managing partner and Americas managing partner-elect, said. “Pulling from his deep experience leading major business transformations across a variety of industries, he will drive our people agenda, cultivate belonging and inclusiveness, and help our clients, teams and communities thrive.”
