About Peter

Peter is the leader of McKinsey’s High Tech Practice in Japan, where he serves Japanese, Chinese, and Western technology, media, and consumer-products companies.  In addition to strategy and operational issues he has supported a number of corporate-finance engagements focusing on M&A and joint-venture development.

His recent high-tech experience includes helping a leading Chinese technology manufacturer structure and execute a manufacturing joint venture with a Taiwanese firm, and supporting a major global high-tech manufacturer restructure its product development, marketing and branding, and call-center operations. In Japan, he has guided a leading Japanese high-tech manufacturer in identifying and capturing cost-reduction opportunities across its hardware portfolio, and counseled an OAIT player on building and launching a teleweb channel in China.

Peter’s work extends to companies outside the high-tech sector, including growth strategy and operational improvement initiatives at media, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor firms.

Peter has immersed himself in Asian culture, working from several of McKinsey’s offices in Asia. He speaks fluent Japanese, Mandarin, and Thai.

He has authored numerous research articles on consumer and macroeconomic trends and is leading McKinsey’s research on the role of women in corporations.
