Ernst & Young FSO expands private equity business

Shawn Pride, the founder and chief executive officer of P & L Consulting Group, along with her former team, has joined Ernst & Young’s financial services office (FSO) in New York and Dallas.

P & L Consulting Group was a boutique advisory company focused on fund administration system selection, implementation and design for private equity, as well as other select alternative investment managers.
In her new role, Pride will lead the US advisory services for private equity firms.
"The P & L Consulting Group’s arrival at Ernst & Young comes at a pivotal time in the industry — a point where asset management operating models, including private equity, must adapt to fast-changing business, investor and regulatory demands," says Carmine DiSibio, vice chair and managing partner, financial services, Ernst & Young. "Shawn’s leadership, and the collective talent of the team, will enhance our ability to assist clients in improving the production, management and deployment of information across their enterprise."
Pride has 15 years’ consulting experience, including 13 years’ advisory experience working with leading private equity fund managers. She began her career at Accenture and will now be a principal in the Ernst & Young FSO advisory practice. Pride will be based in New York.
"Joining Ernst & Young offers us a better platform to effectively address the changing and complex needs of PE fund managers," says Pride. "This is a great opportunity to be with an organisation that has a similar perspective and commitment to the market."
In addition, Steven Boydstun, who was most recently P & L Consulting Group’s president, will also join Ernst & Young’s FSO practice. He has more than 20 years of technology strategy and system implementation experience. Boydstun will serve as an executive director based in Dallas.
