András leads the advanced-industries work in Central Europe, focusing on the automotive, aerospace and defense, and electronics sectors and other discrete manufacturing industries. He also coleads our digital-manufacturing initiative globally, an effort focused on getting ahead of the next wave of digitization in the manufacturing sector—also referred to as Industry 4.0. As an advisor to executives, András works with clients seeking production innovation and operational improvements, helping them realize the benefits that can come with digital disruption.
Since joining the firm, András has served automotive original equipment manufacturers and suppliers, as well as other companies in the electronics, aerospace, and energy sectors. In addition to leading operational-performance improvement, he also guides improvements to product and production design and assists in longer-term strategic planning. András often conducts rapid diagnostics to determine a company’s situation and identify sources of value; he then tailors delivery options to match the opportunity, from proof-of-concept to value assurance to full-scale transformations.
Examples of his recent client work include the following:
- designing the digital transformation of several industrial and automotive companies, helping them prioritize Industry 4.0 levers based on value creation potential, roadmapping their transition, and assessing the impact of the proposed changes
- optimizing the footprint of a global automotive supplier, reducing its costs by relocating production from high-cost sites to high-efficiency and low-cost locations
- managing a manufacturing cost-reduction program for a leading European OEM, achieving significant returns by rigorously managing a pipeline of ideas regarding design-to-cost, cross-functional challenge boards, and multilateral joint configurations
- introducing lean-manufacturing approaches to a combined utility company, working closely with its board and CEO, and touching more than 1,000 employees
Before joining McKinsey, András was a PhD student and teaching assistant focused on fluid mechanics in automotive engineering. During his studies, he pursued research in internal-combustion engines in cooperation with AVL List. Beyond his native Hungarian, András also speaks English and German.
