William has made a difference in public health in Africa through his role with McKinsey. He joined our firm from John Hopkins. If you’re currently working or studying in the US and interested in doing meaningful work in a fast-growth market, apply by May 19th to join us for Global Connect in Washington, DC.
Prior to joining the firm, I researched HIV in the US, led HIV research studies in Nigeria, and served as a medical officer in Ghana. I studied public health at Johns Hopkins because I wanted to sharpen my skills and improve healthcare delivery.
McKinsey enabled me to do significant work across Africa. My favorite project involved creating and leading a change management effort in a complex public health supply chain. My team’s work enabled 100% stock visibility in more than 20,000 health facilities in a West African country. As a result, sector leaders can now take targeted actions to reduce out of stock rates for critical drugs. I enjoyed this study because our work had the potential to save millions of lives and because the team with which I was working collaborated well and had fun together.
Many of my peers in the Lagos office have had similarly meaningful experiences. I appreciate how McKinsey’s expertise creates incredible opportunities for us to grow into thought–leaders. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
