Ernst & Young LLP adds to oil and gas supply chain practice

Ernst & Young

Ernst & Young has made two personnel appointments to further expand its Supply Chain Advisory Services practice in the oil and gas industry.

“As the US oil and gas industry expands, particularly with shale plays, so does the need and importance of supply chain management services,” said Niul Burton, principal, Supply Chain & Operations Advisory Services.

Based in Dallas, Jade Rodysill joins the firm from Accenture as a principal in the practice and brings extensive experience in the chemicals, oil and gas, natural resources, transportation and utilities industries. Over the past 18 years, Rodysill has worked at strategic and tactical levels across procurement, manufacturing, logistics and planning domains, also focusing on supply chain risk management/resilience and commercial alignment. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska and graduated from The Wharton School of Business with an MBA.

Jim Franks brings more than 20 years of supply-chain experience to his role as principal in the firm’s Dallas office. Prior to joining Ernst & Young LLP, he was a partner for Accenture’s Supply Chain Strategy practice where he held leadership roles in both the upstream and pipelines/mid-stream North American supply chain operations. Franks has considerable expertise in procurement and sourcing operations, strategic sourcing, logistics and supply chain strategy development and execution. Franks earned his bachelor’s degree from the United States Air Force Academy and received his MBA at Southern Methodist University.

Rodysill and Franks join approximately 180 practitioners in the US Supply Chain Advisory Services practice, and nearly 1,700 Ernst & Young organization colleagues dedicated to the oil and gas industry within the United States.
