Global strategy consulting firm EY-Parthenon has appointed ex-McKinsey man Neeraj Mohan as its new leader for India.

Neeraj Moha joins the firm externally, having spent the past decade at global investor and asset manager Blackstone. Most recently, he was an Operating Partner, and before that he was a Managing Director. During this period, he led and supported dozens of deals across Asia and India across sectors including pharma, automotive, financial services, education and industrials.

In his new role, he leads EY-Parthenon’s teams across India and client projects – focused on growth strategy, transactions (mainly strategic and commercial due diligence), restructuring, and major transformation programmes. The firm works for multinationals, large family businesses, private equity groups and their portfolio companies, and a handful of government agencies.

Moha’s main task is to “accelerate the growth” of the firm, said Amit Khandelwal, Managing Partner of the Strategy and Transactions division (EY-Parthenon sits within this division). “We are committed to growing our EY-Parthenon practice by bringing together our deep functional knowledge, a network of global professionals and sectoral expertise.” 

The appointment comes at a time of growth for EY-Parthenon in India, as well as globally. Domestically, the firm has over the past year added close to a dozen of new partners to its ranks. Globally the firm now has a team of more than 6,500 consultants and staff, up from 350 when EY acquired The Parthenon Group seven years ago. 

“Leading EY-Parthenon is an incredible opportunity. I look forward to further strengthening the brand’s position as the preferred strategy partner for business organisations and investors,” said Mohan on his new challenge. 

Mohan will report to Khandelwal (locally) and EY-Parthenon Asia-Pacific Leader Ignatius Tong (internationally).
