About Ivo

Ivo has extensive experience working with international majors, national oil companies, host governments, and selected independents and oil-field services providers―across Africa, Asia, Europe, Russia, and the United States.

Ivo helps his clients shape strategies for growth, value creation, and industry leadership―and supports them in aligning their organizations for execution and sustained performance improvement. He also has deep experience in corporate and asset-based transactions, having worked on numerous M&A deals across the globe, both with majors and private-equity companies. He is an advisor to several energy-oriented investment funds.

Ivo’s major research interest encompasses the future evolution of the oil industry, and he leads several McKinsey knowledge initiatives in this arena. He is a frequent speaker and participant in the key global forums of the oil and gas industry, such as the Singapore International Energy Week.

Although Ivo’s client work and research focus are global, he and his family are based in the Netherlands and contribute actively to Dutch society. He currently serves as a member of the advisory boards of the EYE Film Institute Netherlands and the Moroccan Dutch Leadership Initiative.
