About Alwin

Alwin is a digital partner based in our London office. He has over 25 years of experience leading high-profile business-transformation initiatives for telco, media, entertainment, and retail organizations. He focuses on creating new economic value from use of digital and analytics.

Before joining McKinsey in 2016, his client successes included helping a large telco design, build, and launch a new mobile-app store; helping a large media company create a new ad-based revenue stream from a multi-device Internet TV proposition; helping a pay-TV provider drive value from a behavioral and targeted segment-based analytics platform; helping a large UK retailer become more mobile; implementing a digital-learning platform being used in over 200 schools; and, creating a new digital organization for a FTSE-listed organization. His recent pioneering work includes building cognitive robot prototypes in financial services to improve business-process efficiency.

In 2013, Alwin designed and launched a new advanced-analytics institute in conjunction with Imperial College London to drive new business insights and value from big data. With Imperial College, he then co-led the creation of the world’s most advanced data-visualization capability (Global Data Observatory) as well as the United Kingdom’s first masters of science degree in business analytics.

In addition, Alwin is a visiting professor at Imperial College Business School and is a non-executive member of the Institute of Data Science (helping establish data science as a new discipline).
