About Tse Wen

Tse Wen is the leader of our Implementation group in Southeast Asia. By deploying experienced implementation consultants—typically, former line managers—he and his colleagues drive implementation efforts broadly across sectors, generating rapid results and building lasting capabilities.

Since joining McKinsey in 2007, Tse Wen has focused on advising public-sector organizations, at both the federal and state level, as well as state-owned enterprises. He offers hands-on support to leaders as they pursue economic development and seek to improve performance management.

Examples of his work include:

  • helping a prime minister’s team in an Asian country to develop a roadmap for rationalizing subsidies
  • leading a delivery lab focused on urban planning and development for a capital city in Southeast Asia
  • working with an Asian governmental innovation agency to develop and implement a national biomass strategy
  • developing an economic development strategy for a state-owned sovereign-wealth fund
  • leading a program-management team assigned to implement the initiatives associated with a new national education strategy
  • establishing a group within the government of an Asian country to oversee a performance-management system and pursue key performance indicators

Before joining McKinsey, Tse Wen was a strategy and operations consultant at Deloitte.
