About Oscar

Oscar leads McKinsey’s Healthcare Systems & Services Practice in Scandinavia and has a deep passion for serving clients in the healthcare and public sectors in Sweden and across Europe.

He has served some of Europe’s leading academic medical centers on their strategies and operational transformations and has been an advisor to many healthcare regions and governments on topics such as reimbursement models, structural reform, and healthcare value.

Outside of his client work, Oscar is a key driver in Forum För Välfärd (Forum for Healthcare Development), a platform that combines healthcare, academia, business, and government to drive deepened dialogue and develop concrete proposals for lasting improvements in healthcare. He also serves on the expert committee of GEN-PEP, the Swedish Crown Princess Couple’s foundation on health for young people, as well as the board of one of Sweden’s leading independent schools.

Oscar joined McKinsey’s London office in 2004 as an experienced hire. Prior to joining McKinsey, he worked at OSI Industries as a senior manager for business systems, focusing on transformation of portfolio companies.
