About Anders

Anders is a partner in McKinsey’s Oil & Gas Practice, where he works with oil and gas operators and suppliers globally. As a McKinsey advisor for 18 years, of which 15 were solely focused on oil and gas, he leads the practice’s work in advanced analytics, digital transformation, and the drilling and well-space services. Most of his client work focuses on driving deep, transformational change through the use of new digital offerings, as well as more traditional approaches.

Anders is also a leader of the Oil & Gas Practice’s digital and advanced analytics work.

Examples of his recent work include the following:

  • developing the digital strategy, road map, and concrete use cases for a large oil and gas operator
  • helping oil and gas operators to improve their performance across the value chain, including exploration, drilling, field development, production, operations, and logistics
  • transforming performance across all areas of oilfield services and equipment, with a particular focus on subsea and engineering
  • fundamentally changing a mid-size independent’s operating model through agile transformation
  • advising global energy clients on digital strategies to improve their efficiency and to develop new product and service offerings
  • supporting private-equity clients on commercial due diligences in oil and gas
  • helping portfolio companies to define and implement plans to reach their full potential

Prior to McKinsey, Anders worked in the oil and gas and engineering sectors. He recently moved to Middle East, and lives in Dubai.
