As Los Angeles Office Managing Partner, Park is responsible for leading 2,300 professionals while continuing to drive growth and advancing the firm's inclusive, people-focused culture. The EY Los Angeles office, which celebrated its centennial anniversary in 2020 and was recently redesigned to foster more flexibility and collaboration, will be overseen by Park.

"Andy has deep roots in, and a passion for, the Los Angeles office and community. He has demonstrated this passion, along with strong technical experience, an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit and a commitment to teaming throughout his EY career. I am confident that Andy will excel in leading this dynamic office and market as we emerge from the pandemic and are at the forefront of both operating in and advising clients in our new working world."

Most recently, he served as Tax Account Leader in the EY Private Client Services practice, advising high-growth, pre-IPO companies across a wide range of industries. Park is passionate about entrepreneurship and is co-director of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year® Greater Los Angeles program. Now in its 35th year, the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year program honors business leaders whose ambition, courage and ingenuity help transform the world.
"I am incredibly honored to serve our EY professionals, our clients and community as the Greater Los Angeles Office Managing Partner," said Park. "This is a phenomenal opportunity to lead an inspiring and talented group of professionals as we help clients navigate this new working world. Under Pat Niemann's leadership over the past decade, our Los Angeles practice has reached new heights as the premier professional services organization in the greater LA market, and I'm committed to building on his remarkable legacy and success."
The son of Korean immigrants, Park is the first in his family to attend college.
