EY joins forces with strategy consultant OC&C Germany

  • EY expands international strategy consultancy EY-Parthenon in Germany and Europe
  • Entire OC&C Germany team joins EY-Parthenon
  • Another important step in the expansion of its strategy consulting in Europe

The EY (Ernst & Young) accounting and consulting network is substantially expanding its international strategy consulting services under the EY-Parthenon brand: Ernst & Young GmbH (EY Germany) has taken over the consulting firm OC&C Strategy Consultants GmbH (OC&C Germany).
