About David

Since joining McKinsey, David has helped clients unlock substantial impact through his work in at-scale transformations across North and South America, Europe, and Australia. He often plays interim CTO roles or coaches client CTOs to succeed in a range of capital-intensive sectors, including advanced industries, manufacturing, and resources.

David is part of our global committee that leads research within the RTS space and leads our transformation finance and performance infrastructure knowledge. This work has been foundational to many of the tools, trainings, and capability-building programs that we bring to clients globally.

Prior to joining McKinsey, David worked in corporate strategy at one of the UK’s largest commercial property and casualty insurers, where he led multiple strategy, marketing, and corporate development projects.
