About Kristine

Kristine is one of the leaders in our Philippines office. She works with major private and public-sector organizations across key sectors, including financial services, healthcare, education, infrastructure, transportation, and consumer goods. She brings particular expertise in large-scale transformation and delivery programs.

In more than a decade with McKinsey, Kristine has worked with government entities and government-linked companies across Asia. For example, she helped develop a 10-year blueprint to transform the Ministry of Finance in a large Asian country, helped shape the long-term strategy for an infrastructure fund, and supported a Southeast Asian government in shaping an economic-stimulus package.

In education, Kristine’s experience includes working with an Asian Ministry of Education to design and help deliver priority initiatives to transform the education system, including a coaching program for underperforming school teachers. She has also helped shape a national strategy for growth in the private-education sector and developed a business case for a network of teacher-training institutions.

Kristine’s work with private-sector clients includes helping a leading financial-services firm in the Philippines shape its retail and commercial growth strategy. She has also developed a Philippines market-entry strategy for a multinational consumer-goods company, and a Philippines growth strategy for a global pharmaceutical firm—including assessing the healthcare preferences of the country’s fast-growing middle class.

When Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) hit the Philippines in November 2013, Kristine led our work to support government agencies, NGOs, and private firms in their disaster-relief and recovery activities. She continues to work with a private-sector-led consortium to institutionalize a coordinated response from the business community during times of disaster.
