Yuval works closely with consumer, tech, media and advanced industries companies on topics related to corporate and growth strategy, innovation, consumer insights, branding, marketing effectiveness, and route to market. He recently helped a major consumer tech company reposition its brand, simplify and sharpen its product portfolio and improve its go-to-market, resulting in substantial market-share gains. He also worked closely with a fast-moving-consumer-goods company to reprioritize investment across categories, cities, and channels, achieving more than 20 percent growth while substantially improving profitability.

In China, Yuval led the Strategy Practice for the Greater China region. He worked with government agencies to leverage consumer insights and private-sector collaboration for economic development, and he led McKinsey's Insights China consumer-market-intelligence group.
