Ali Malik


Advises clients in Pakistan across a broad range of functional areas, including governments and major private companies, and brings deep expertise across telecommunications, digital, and the public sector

Ali leads the firm’s work in Pakistan. He has 17 years of experience working with clients across a broad range of functional areas including telecommunications, digital business building, and the public sector.

Ali’s passion for technology and digital led him outside McKinsey where he spent four years launching and scaling a digital business. Ali worked in the roles of head of product and marketing and, as a result, brings a practitioner’s knowledge of conceptualizing, developing, and scaling digital businesses to his clients. Since returning to McKinsey, Ali has applied his digital skills to support a variety of companies including a retail bank and a leading public sector organization.

Ali’s knowledge in the telecommunications sector has helped define the government-relations strategy for a leading telecom company in Pakistan. This effort resulted in reversal of government actions and flow of over $150 million per year in additional foreign exchange for the country.

Ali has also served several leading family-owned conglomerates. He led the portfolio review and restructuring exercise for a leading family-owned business resulting in substantial capital reallocation across sectors. Ali also supported one of the largest power companies in Pakistan to define its government affairs agenda and approach to encourage investment in the power sector.

In addition to his client responsibilities, Ali chairs the people committee for the Pakistan office where he leads the local recruiting and people-development functions.
