Ernst & Young has promoted nearly three-decade firm veteran Gerry Dixon to managing partner of the firm’s U.S. government and public sector practice.
Dixon will officially start the role on July 1 and succeed Michael Herrinton, who has led the professional services firm’s work with government clients since 2015. Herrinton will retire from EY in June 2022, which will mark 35 years with the firm.
EY’s public sector practice employs more than 1,500 staffers that work with government clients at the federal, state and local levels alongside certain higher education institutions.
Dixon has been managing partner for EY’s U.S. Eastern region accounts since 2016 in a role that also sees him responsible for marketing and business development functions.
His career at EY also includes roles such as leader of the U.S. East consulting practice and starting the firm’s risk practice.
