Works with major financial institutions, and leads McKinsey’s Digital Quotient initiative—helping companies rapidly gauge and strengthen their digital capabilities to improve financial performance

About Tanguy

Tanguy leads McKinsey's North American P&C Insurance Practice.

In addition, he is a leader of McKinsey’s Digital Strategy Practice and Digital Quotient™ (DQ) initiative, and helps companies build out their digital capabilities to deliver rapid results and sustained growth. DQ is an assessment that allows organizations to clearly identify their digital strengths and weaknesses across different parts of the organization, and compare them against hundreds of organizations around the world.

Tanguy works with leading global financial service firms on multichannel distribution strategies, digitally enabled business model transformations, large scale marketing and sales programs. He also serves insurance clients more broadly on topics ranging from strategy and organization to operations, technology, claims, and underwriting.

His recent client engagements include assisting a top-ten property-and-casualty and life insurer in building an internal digital agency, helping a US multiline carrier accelerate test-and-learn capabilities and a personalization engine for its online channel, and working with a number of major multiline players to optimize their marketing spending across media, channels, and products.

Tanguy frequently contributes to industry publications and has authored several McKinsey white papers on issues confronting the insurance industry.

Tanguy is member of the Alumni Board of the MIT Sloan School of Management and a former board member of the Massachusetts chapter of March of Dimes, a nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies.
