Emma leads McKinsey’s Strategy & Corporate Finance Practice in the United Kingdom and coleads our work on carbon removals.
Her client work improves the performance of a variety of enterprises in the public and private sectors, and she often works with clients to help manage complexities at the intersection of the two. She is passionate about helping institutions set and deliver sustainable strategies and modernize organizations and has worked with companies around the world across a diverse set of industries, as well as institutions in the public and social sectors.
Most recently, her work in the private sector focuses on transforming utilities in the United Kingdom and helping innovative leaders as they scale-up carbon-removal businesses. She regularly works with government agencies to inform strategic decisions and deliver ambitious agendas.
Emma’s insights on strategic topics have been published in McKinsey Quarterly, Harvard Business Review, and others. She contributes to the McKinsey Center for Government and McKinsey Sustainability research. She has also written on advancing women’s equality in the United Kingdom through the McKinsey Global Institute.
Emma first joined McKinsey as a business analyst in London. She later worked on international development strategies with governments, UN agencies, and nongovernmental organizations before returning to McKinsey.
Outside of her work with the firm, Emma is also a trustee of Sands (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity), a not for profit that helps bereaved families after the loss of a child and works to prevent such tragedies.
