About Neil

Neil leads McKinsey’s provider growth domain and the provider subdomain within the Center for US Healthcare Reform. Upon joining the firm, Neil focused on provider strategy across the spectrum of US health systems, also serving clients in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. He has since expanded his scope to work with regional health plans and post-acute companies on strategic issues, as well as with private-equity clients.

Previously, Neil worked at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University Law Center, with The Lancet Commission on Investing in Health, as an associate with Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy in Singapore, and as a research assistant with former US Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers.
