About Andrew

Andrew is a leader in our Financial Services and Public Sector Practices in the Americas. He serves financial institutions and government agencies on a wide range of topics, focusing especially on using risk management to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. He also directs the McKinsey Center for Government’s work with regulatory and enforcement agencies.

Since joining McKinsey in 2001, Andrew has led several research efforts on productivity in the public sector, including research on risk-based resource allocation for regulators and global benchmarking of tax authorities and social-payments agencies. He is a regular contributor to the McKinsey Working Papers on Risk series and frequently writes about regulation, insurance, and incentives.

Andrew’s recent public-sector projects have included helping a bank regulator design a long-term strategy for improving its supervision function, rebuilding and transforming a natural-resources regulator, and supporting a government agency in its efforts to detect and mitigate compliance violations and waste, fraud, and abuse. His recent private-sector work has included helping a major US life insurance company build a new risk-management function.

Prior to joining McKinsey, Andrew taught economics, finance, and econometrics at the University of Chicago and George Mason University. He holds degrees in economics from the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Chicago.
