About Michael

Michael Park leads McKinsey's Strategy & Corporate Finance Practice for the Northeast United States. He is a member of the Advanced Industries Practice, with a focus on aerospace and defense and energy-equipment manufacturers. He is also an expert in M&A and divestitures, spanning corporate restructurings, spin-offs, asset sales, and master limited partnerships.

Over the past 10 years, Michael has worked with clients on a broad range of growth-strategy and finance issues. He has developed portfolio strategies based on value-creation potential, for industrial and energy original-equipment manufacturers, aerospace and defense contractors, and equipment-services players. He has advised industrial corporates, private-equity investors, and sovereign-wealth funds on more than 30 M&A transactions. And he has provided support on multiple carve-outs, spin-offs, and asset restructurings, including a $10 billion chemicals division, $2 billion in IT assets, and pipelines, coal, and energy-trading assets.

Michael was selected by the Partnership for New York City to serve as a David Rockefeller Fellow from 2011 to 2012. He is also a corporate term member for the Council on Foreign Relations.
