Ernst & Young Locates New Center in Nashville, Tennessee

Ernst & Young, a global professional services firm, will invest more than $20 million to establish its EY Exceptional Delivery Growth Engine Center in Nashville, Tennessee. EY expects to create more than 600 jobs over the next five years.

In addition to the new EY EDGE Center, the firm also announced earlier this year the move of its approximately 300 current Nashville employees to a new location at 222 2nd Ave S. in January 2019, relocating from 150 4th Ave N. The EY EDGE Center currently occupies a temporary office space until the opening of the office on Music Row.

EY is expanding its presence in Nashville with the opening of its new Center that will include software development, design and testing, as well as professionals delivering technology enabled tax managed services for clients. A leading practice in Nashville for decades, the establishment of the EY EDGE Center delivers on EY’s purpose of building a better working world for its clients and communities.

“Nashville is a growing city with a vibrant economy that will provide an opportunity for EY to build more centralized resources to deliver tax managed services enabled by leading-edge technology and client platforms,” said Joe Hogan, EY Americas Tax and Finance Operate Leader. “The opening of the EY EDGE Center will further enhance our ability to bring to our clients leading practices that will help with their business needs as the demand for technology enabled alternative sourcing models in tax increases.”

“EY EDGE represents our focus on delivering high quality managed services to our diverse clients,” said Dan Thibault, Leader, EY EDGE. “We anticipate opening in August 2019, and the center will occupy over 60,000 square feet on two floors in a new office location on Music Row. It is expected to house over 600 employees, including 200 technology and 400 tax delivery professionals to support the delivery of tax services outsourced to EY by our clients.”

“We are thankful that EY has made the decision to invest in our city in this way," Nashville Mayor David Briley said. "Nashville continues to appeal to well-respected businesses like EY because we offer a vibrant economy and a great place to live. I am particularly excited about the significant number of high-quality tech jobs the company will bring to Nashville."

“EY’s decision to create hundreds of technology and service delivery jobs in Nashville affirms our ongoing efforts to bring high quality jobs to Tennessee,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Tennessee’s pro-growth policies continue to attract leading international businesses to our state. I’d like to thank EY for making this major investment in Middle Tennessee and bringing us one step closer to making Tennessee the top state in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“Tennessee is a growing home for major international businesses, particularly in the tech sector,” Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “Since 2013, the number of tech jobs in the Nashville region has increased by almost 30 percent, far outpacing the national average. Thank you, EY, for this significant investment in Middle Tennessee. These are exactly the kind of high quality jobs we want in Tennessee."
