The participating Ernst & Young leaders will be: Carmine DiSibio, vice chair and managing partner of financial services; Gary Kozlowski, partner of financial services and board member of JANY; Margaret Dennis, partner of financial services, and Community Engagement co-champion; Ray Mikovits, partner of financial services and Community Engagement co-champion.
