David is a senior partner and managing partner of McKinsey's Israel office.
David previously led the Public & Social Sector Practice in Europe, established our work in the cybersecurity space, and led our services for defence ministries and armed forces globally.
Originally from London, David returned to Israel in 2021, bringing more than 20 years of experience serving companies across multiple industries on topics ranging from strategy to operational transformation and procurement. His focus over the last few years has been on government transformations and companies that supply governments—with particular expertise in defence.
David’s projects have included multi-year transformations in aerospace and defence manufacturing, application of lean management techniques for maintenance and optimization of organization design and personnel management, and major corporate transformations covering topics including portfolio strategy, sales growth, and operational efficiency. He has supported multiple substantial transformations related to indirect and direct purchasing and supply-chain design and manufacturing.
David also aids McKinsey’s pro-bono efforts, applying his experience in military logistics to support disaster-recovery teams. He led our aid efforts following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, working with the Haitian government, leading NGOs, and other organizations in the international community to manage disaster recovery and reconstruction operations. He has played a major role in our COVID-19 support for governments in Europe.
