Helps leaders build the capabilities in their organizations to deploy data, advanced analytics and artificial intelligence at scale to drive continuous learning and performance improvement

Jeremy is a senior partner with the firm’s London office and has overseen the growth and emergence of QuantumBlack, AI by McKinsey, as a global leader in the application of AI to drive performance improvement and innovation.

In 2015, he led QuantumBlack’s acquisition by McKinsey, which merged the company’s AI, machine learning, and continuous performance improvement with McKinsey’s unrivaled domain knowledge and change-management expertise. This allowed him to help support leading companies around the world in developing the capabilities required to grasp opportunities to use data to become more agile, adaptable, and successful.

Jeremy has decades of wide-ranging leadership experience; he has worked in global financial-services groups in Europe and Asia, as well as early-stage digital and technical venture capitals. He is deeply committed to the principles of continuous learning, collaboration and reinvention, and the importance of strong culture and organizational values when growing successful teams.

Jeremy also has extensive experience as a trustee and chair in the not-for-profit sector, mainly in education and the arts. He is currently the chair of Day One Trust, which prepares young people for careers in the creative industries, and also a trustee of Art Fund, the United Kingdom's national charity for art.
