About Olivia

Olivia joined McKinsey from a career working with various private-sector financial-services clients and major public-sector institutions, advising on strategic growth options and transformational change. She brings strong expertise in acquisitions and divestments, strategy, and regulatory change affecting organizations engaged in wealth management, banking, and insurance. She has additional experience across a range of other sectors, including infrastructure, property, resources, retail and consumer, services, and telecommunications.

Olivia has a strong interest in social business. In 2015 she joined some of Australia’s most prominent business leaders to launch Australia’s first “Investment Bank-for-Purpose,” Adara Partners, as Corporate Advisory Director. The organization provides advice to major corporate and government clients, with all profits from client fees funding important health and education projects in developing countries.

In 2014 Olivia received a Westpac/Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence Award. In the same year, she represented the Australian business community at the B20 Leaders’ Summit in Sydney.
