EY’s Client Technology Group helps clients harness emerging technology to power business transformation, drive growth and solve their most pressing issues.

The technology-focused group is expanding its global footprint with the opening of the EY Technology Centre in Vancouver.

“Vancouver is home to a number of market-leading technology players and up-and-coming tech startups,” said Kevin Brennan, EY Canada West Market Leaders on the announcement.

“Combine that with its position in the Cascadia Corridor and proximity to Silicon Valley and there’s a wealth of technology talent and experience to draw from.

Brennan continues, “The EY Technology Centre — Vancouver is one more way we’re delivering on this commitment to our clients and living our purpose and values.”

The EY Technology Centre in Vancouver will be led by Sasidhar Akkiraju.

“Technology plays a critical role in helping companies get ahead of disruption and capture opportunities around data-oriented insights, demand-driven consumption and increased automation,” said Akkiraju.

“The Centre is part of the Client Technology global network, which brings competencies in rapid prototyping, product engineering, strategic technology partnerships and industry collaboration to help our clients transform at speed.”
