EY has appointed Gaurav Modi as the new leader of its ASEAN consulting division. In the role, Singapore-based Modi leads a team of around 3,000 staff across ten countries.

Modi joins the Big Four firm from Capgemini, where he spent twelve years – most recently as Executive Vice President and Managing Director of its South East Asia business.

Commenting on his return to the Big Four environment (earlier in his career Modi served KPMG for two years), he said, “I’m excited to join EY – a truly multidisciplinary professional services organisation – and work with teams and ecosystem of partners to serve clients, while at the same time, propel EY to the next stage of growth.”

Modi brings over two decades of experience in management consulting and digital transformation to the firm.

His track record at clients includes working on electricity market deregulation in Singapore, supporting a major telecom transformation in the Philippines, Hong Kong and Malaysia, and advising on a customer experience overhaul at a multinational in Singapore.

“Gaurav is an accomplished and distinctive leader who combines both outstanding credentials and vast experience, and demonstrates a strong alignment with our culture and values. He brings the ideal experience of leadership ability and consulting expertise to help our clients with their business transformation needs,” said Liew Nam Soon, ASEAN Managing Partner at EY.

In the top role, Modi leads EY’s full consulting portfolio – spanning strategy, business consulting, human capital and technology services – and teams in Singapore, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

As part of his remit, Modi has been tasked with continuing EY Consulting’s growth in the region. “Over the last few years, EY Consulting’s services have been expanding rapidly, particularly in the areas of technology, digital, innovation, analytics and cybersecurity,” said Soon. “We will continue to make investments in people, services and solutions, and we are delighted to have Gaurav lead our ambitions.”
