Leads McKinsey Sustainability in Australia and New Zealand; supports private- and public-sector clients on strategy, growth, and building capabilities to navigate energy and materials adaptation to climate change

For the last two decades, David has collaborated with clients across the private and public sectors in Australia and across Asia on tough strategic and execution challenges.

  • helping develop a low-emissions technology roadmap for a country
  • building a new renewable-energy-and-storage business
