Pranathi Praveen

Prior to joining EY and whilst at university, I worked as a part-time business development consultant where I implemented technological initiatives to drive processes efficiencies and improve the customer base at a media firm.

My passion for technology has developed from a young age where I often found myself flicking through my mum’s Engineering books and learning programming languages with her. Also, from a young age, I have regularly volunteered at a Blind school in India, teaching Blind students’ computer skills through computer screen reader programs.

After graduating from King’s College London in Biomedical Science, I was keen to pursue a career in Consulting – I wanted a new challenge in an exciting and evolving area. I joined EY in 2015 where I progressed through the two year graduate scheme and am a Senior Consultant within the Financial Services Advisory practise – aligned to Cyber Security. Over the past four years, I have also had the opportunity to work in the New York office for 9 months and am now based full time in the London office.

Over the past four years, my day-to-day job at EY has equipped me with a variety of experiences including internally supporting Leadership in the development of the Digital campaign, leading and organising Women in Technology Agile and Technology boot-camps for internal and external guests, and externally with clients – supporting with RPA enablement, implementing technologies to improve the user access management for over 1000 apps, helping implement robust controls to minimise technical and operational disruptions and helping clients comply to regulations such as MiFID II and GDPR.
