About Matt

During Matt’s 25 years at McKinsey, he has served as the leader of our Electric Power & Natural Gas, Oil & Gas, and Sustainability Practices as well as supporting energy clients globally. His work currently focuses on unconventional resources in North America, the restructuring of US power markets, and the role of technology and innovation in reshaping market dynamics, capital productivity, and operational efficiency in the oil, gas, and power industries.

Between 2009 and 2010, Matt served as the senior advisor to the US Secretary of Energy, managing the Department of Energy’s Recovery Act appropriations. These funded more than 5,000 projects in energy efficiency, advanced transportation, renewable energy, transmission and distribution infrastructure, carbon capture and sequestration, environmental clean-up, and basic and applied science.

Matt has written and spoken extensively on oil, gas, power, and resource markets. In his 2014 book Resource Revolution: How to Capture the Biggest Business Opportunity in a Century (New Harvest, April 2014), cowritten with Stefan Heck, he argues that the combination of information technology with industrial technology is changing the way we produce and use natural resources and restructure energy, agriculture, transportation, and construction markets globally.
