About Matteo

Matteo leads our work in manufacturing in Southeast Asia. His areas of operations expertise include productivity improvements, lean transformations, and cost-optimization programs. In recent years, he has supported lean transformations at more than 30 different clients, often generating more than 20 percent productivity improvements.

Matteo has worked with a wide range of manufacturers, including automotive, construction, logistics, high-tech, telecom, and paper companies, as well as banks. Now based in Singapore, he has counseled companies all over the world, including in London, Milan, the United States, and across Southeast Asia.

Examples of Matteo’s recent client work include the following:

  • designing and supporting large-scale transformation programs for multinational consumer-goods companies
  • helping to reduce capital expenditures for an Asian utility provider
  • developing productivity improvements for a number of low-volume and high-complexity manufacturers, such as oil-rig makers, shipbuilders, and aerospace-and-defense companies
  • employing cost-reduction and debottlenecking techniques to assist an Asian semiconductor company in improving its performance
  • conducting operations due-diligence programs for consumer and automotive companies to help them identify cost-reduction opportunities

Prior to joining McKinsey, Matteo was a senior consultant at Solving Efeso, focused on lean and world-class manufacturing (WCM) projects. This work led to three different awards from the Japanese Institute of Plant Maintenance.
