About Stefano

Stefano Martinotti is a partner in our Abu Dhabi office and co-leads our fast-growing Business Technology Office (BTO) in the Middle East. He is passionate about accelerating the impact of technology across sectors, with a primary focus on oil and gas and the public sector.

Stefano serves several national and international oil companies on diverse topics, including big data, automation, preventive maintenance and value chain optimization. These issues, once ancillary in oil-and-gas operations, have now climbed to the top of leadership agendas, given their disruptive and material impact on the bottom line. Stefano is excited to help oil companies transform into leaders in technology innovation—for example, using 3D printing to produce spare parts and dramatically reduce downtime on offshore platforms.

Stefano is also passionate about the impact of technology in the public sector, and the way it can change the lives of millions of people. He has the privilege of leading some of the most innovative e-enabled projects in the Gulf. These span a wide spectrum of topics— including education, employment, and e-Government—in areas in which Gulf governments and public-sector agencies are surpassing other countries.

Prior to joining McKinsey, Stefano was a manager at Accenture, where he was a recognised expert in business-process reengineering and IT architecture, and where he acted as programme manager in several large-scale, cross-border implementation projects for major financial-services players.
