Advises and develops natural-gas and liquefied-natural-gas (LNG) companies across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America.

He serves clients globally, working across all the functions from operations, marketing, and sales to corporate finance and organization.

  • designing a digital lean transformation for a leading European gas transmission system operator—including metering, maintenance, and operations activities—with up to 30 percent improvement in efficiency
  • supporting the strategy turnaround and assessing the options for a top European gas and power unit, resulting in the restructuring of the company’s business portfolio
  • analyzing the EU gas-market-model evolution for a European gas authority
  • developing LNG marketing and sales for one of the top three LNG players in the world, assessing 40 buyers globally

Before joining McKinsey, Alessandro held engineering, sales, and business-development roles at a subsidiary of General Electric, and he was a researcher and teacher’s assistant in combustion at Frederick O. Hess Engineering Laboratory at Drexel University.
