Devika Vakil, EY

Team Leader Consultant of the Year

A core belief drives Devika Vakil’s approach in her role as a Management Consultant at EY – that is, leadership is a mindset and set of behaviours rather than a title bestowed. This belief, along with Devika’s emphasis on trust, have brought tangible value to both EY’s clients and EY itself, as she delivers innovative technology projects at scale and pace for large energy companies.

Among her successes, she has delivered a co-innovation project with a large team to develop the first sustainability certificate generation app for a petrochemical business. She is also recognised as an inspirational leader and consultant through her nominations for TechWomen100, Future Leaders Programme (World Energy Council) and EY International Women’s Day Awards. Devika is also behind EY’s EnergyEY Connected initiative, designed to keep consultants updated on key energy sector topics.

In many letters of recommendation, Devika’s clients and team members have referenced her energy, passion, and drive. She is renowned for building strong relationships with both clients and team members, and is passionate about bringing the value of the technology to the very relevant topic of energy transition. In the words of a Senior Executive of an FTSE 100 energy company: “We need more people like [Devika] within the energy sector who understand technology in the unique context of how energy companies operate and can drive technology-enabled change in creative ways.”
