About Jennifer

Jennifer specializes in go-to-market (GTM) transformations for B2B companies in a wide range of highly competitive industries, with particular emphasis on basic materials and OEMs. From the design of channel architecture to the reorganization of the sales force, including strategic key-account planning and the development of capability-building programs, she brings to her projects a rich foundation of practical experience and insights from years of McKinsey research.

In her recent work, Jennifer assisted a multibillion global device manufacturer with the redesign of its GTM architecture and sales resource-deployment model; supported an industrial packaging firm in improving its global/key account strategy and corresponding management processes; helped an electronics firm launch a new direct-sales channel alongside its existing wholesale and retail distribution networks; and facilitated the implementation of a sales capability-improvement program for a multinational B2B services company while simultaneously guiding transformation of their GTM strategy.

Jennifer is a frequent author who regularly speaks at industry forums. Prior to McKinsey, Jennifer held various sales and marketing positions, among them with a subsidiary of Trans World Airlines. She also taught sales management at the university level.
