CEC Systems have been selected to join the EY (EY) Vantage Program, an initiative that began in 2005, connecting future EY leaders with market leaders of tomorrow to promote social and economic growth in growth markets.
Since the EY Vantage Program launched, Vantage Advisors have helped over 300 entrepreneurs in more than 30 countries tackle key business challenges, from improving financial management and operational efficiency, to formulating new growth strategies, to understanding the cross-border tax implications of expanding into new markets.
The EY Vantage Program works with Endeavor Global and EY’s Accelerating Entrepreneurs Program, to identify promising entrepreneurs and match them with a Vantage advisor, one of EY’s top-performing managers. Over the course of six weeks, the Vantage advisor works alongside the entrepreneur, leveraging the power of EY’s global network of professionals and breadth of experience to help deliver projects across all business functions and industries.
In 2017, CEC Systems CEO Nicholas Press was selected for the EY Accelerating Entrepreneurs Program, designed to help fast-growth tech start-ups scale their business across borders and enhance growth. The EY Vantage Program will now help CEC Systems tackle specific barriers to business growth by developing and implementing effective cross-border market solutions.
“I am truly appreciative of the support CEC Systems has continued to receive from EY Australia and now the EY Vantage Program. As a small business that is very much in a growth phase, the advice and assistance we have received thus far has been incredibly helpful. Now, with the assignment of a dedicated EY manager, I am confident we can continue to build the strong foundations for our future growth”, Nicholas Press, CEO, CEC Systems.
Loletta Chow, EY Asia-Pacific Growth Markets Leader has expressed her support for CEC Systems’ selection:
“Since its inception, the EY Vantage program has made a positive impact on the entrepreneurs we have supported. Our hope is that EY Vantage can serve as a catalyst for sustainable growth. We’re proud to support impact entrepreneurs, like CEC Systems. We believe that when businesses like CEC Systems grow faster and work better, the world works better.”
