About Francesco

Francesco is a partner in McKinsey’s Milan office and leads our crisis response and credit-risk work across Europe. He also leads our work in enterprise risk management (ERM) and risk culture.

Since joining McKinsey in 2001, Francesco has worked extensively on risk-management topics, particularly in the financial-services sector. He has served a broad range of clients on ERM and risk culture, capital management, and credit-process optimization. He brings particular expertise in credit-risk monitoring and nonperforming-loan resolution for financial-services companies.

Francesco’s client experience includes designing a multicountry nonperforming-loan-resolution program for a large multinational bank with extensive operations across Europe—an intervention that saved €500 million. He also led the comprehensive redesign of credit processes for a large financial group active in several European countries, and he developed a new business model to optimize the group’s absorption of risk-weighted assets in wholesale banking.

In his work in crisis response, Francesco has developed an approach centered on helping major organizations prepare for and prevent crises. He has supported clients around the world on crisis response—including addressing an emerging global public-health crisis and proposing a response to resolve a mounting political crisis.
