About Bryony

Bryony is a leader in both the Healthcare Systems & Services and Public Sector Practices with deep expertise at the intersection of healthcare and organization. She joined McKinsey in London, where she served a range of private- and public-sector healthcare and pharmaceutical clients across Europe and Africa. Since moving to the United States, she has primarily served private-payor and state clients.

Her recent client work includes helping develop a local market strategy for a single-state payor, focused on provider partnerships and capabilities to succeed in a postreform environment. She also performed an assessment of joint-venture opportunities between a large commercial hospital system and a national payor, which would reduce costs and improve quality of care in two key markets.

In the public sector, Bryony’s experience includes helping develop a portfolio-optimization strategy for a government agency, identifying the projects and processes to invest in over the next five years. She has also assessed the opportunities in managed care for an American state, with an estimated five percent total cost reduction.

Bryony has been recognized as a Southern African Leader of Tomorrow, an accolade awarded to fewer than 30 young leaders in Africa by Who’s Who.
