Andrew leads our Public Sector Practice globally and helps lead our Sustainability & Resource Productivity, Social Sector, and Consumer Packaged Goods Practices in Asia. Based in Singapore, he has lived in several Asian countries, including China and Japan. He is a former leader of McKinsey’s Greater China region and has published widely on China’s rise to economic prominence.
Since joining McKinsey in 1992, Andrew has served many leading corporations in a broad range of industries. His current focus is on helping public-sector clients solve their most pressing strategic challenges, especially those related to economic development, health care, and infrastructure. In one recent project, Andrew helped establish a public-private partnership that stimulated a country’s economic development; as part of this effort, he worked with the client to initiate a series of pilots and to design approaches for launching and monitoring activities. Similarly, Andrew supported a Southeast Asian country in the creation of a new economic model—identifying priority growth sectors, developing initiatives to drive economic reform, and crafting an implementation approach.
Andrew won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, where he received a first class honors master’s degree in politics, philosophy, and economics. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Auckland University in New Zealand. He is a board member of the New Zealand Institute, the Springboard Trust, and Onehunga Business High School.
