About Fernanda

As a leader McKinsey’s Digital Marketing and Sales group in Latin America, Fernanda’s work with clients has spanned every aspect of a project, from design to execution and testing.

Among the companies she has helped are a global consumer packaged goods player, to develop and implement a marketing organization design and e-commerce strategy. She also worked with a large (700+ stores) Brazilian retail chain to develop a tailored multichannel strategy and an e-commerce launch.

Other recent successful client engagements include developing a brand architecture and category strategy for a food company and guiding an apparel retailer’s efforts to enhance customer value through store layout redesign (including the fine-tuning of the proposed changes with consumers through a mock-up store).

For the past three years she has co-led our program in Brazil involving more than fifty companies and devoted to generating and spreading insights into digital marketing.
