About Andres

Andres leads McKinsey’s Corporate Finance, Financial Services, and Public Sector practices in Latin America and heads the McKinsey Center for Government in the region. He also directs our work in Latin America on sustainable cities and economic development. He is based in Bogotá.

Since joining McKinsey in 1997, Andres has led more than 250 client projects, with a focus on national and local governments, multilateral organizations, financial institutions, and consumer-goods companies. He recently helped a Latin American government create a strategic plan and set measurable targets for job creation, poverty alleviation, and reduction of street crime. Other recent projects include working with a Latin American government to analyze the country’s competitive position and develop a national strategy for several industry sectors, helping to integrate two Latin American banks placed in government receivership in the wake of the global financial crisis, and supporting a Colombian bank as it designed and implemented a new commercial model.

Andres serves on the boards of a number of nonprofit organizations that focus on education, economic development, and social services in his native Colombia. He has spoken on finance and organization topics at several international conferences. He has an MBA from the University of Rochester and a BS from the University of the Andes.
