About Fritz

Fritz is a longtime member of the Americas Financial Services Practice.

Since joining McKinsey in 1998, Fritz has advised the full range of businesses that comprise the financial services sector. Through a period of intense market turbulence—rapidly changing digital technologies, competitive innovation, changing consumer behavior, and evolving regulatory frameworks—he offered expert guidance and helped executives stay ahead of the pace of change.

With a particular focus on serving leading insurance and banking firms, Fritz directs efforts to set core strategy, achieve operational performance improvement, undertake organizational redesign efforts, and purse successful mergers and acquisitions.

Strongly interested in future-looking industry strategy, Fritz has contributed to several McKinsey-published articles describing emerging dynamic and successful business models in insurance and US banking.

Before earning an MBA at the University of Chicago, Fritz was a graduate of the US Naval Academy. While on active duty, he served as the assistant engineer and weapons officer onboard the submarine USS Dallas.
