A leader in McKinsey’s retail banking sector, focused on advanced analytics, and a major contributor of digital expertise in banking

Megha is a leader of McKinsey’s retail banking advanced analytics work. Her expertise lies in retail banking, advanced analytics, and digital banking.

Through her work in advanced analytics (AA), she has led an end-to-end Retention 2.0 transformation at a Scandinavian retail bank. This project involved modelling, setting up a save desk, and creating ongoing governance and reporting structures. She led the AA, data-transformation strategy, and capability road map for a large Western European bank, and led an AA strategy and pricing excellence implementation, leveraging 360 degrees of customer data and deep AA-driven elasticity/preference insights for a European bank.

In the digital space, she led the design of a CRM/customer touch-point and digital-marketing agenda for a leading UK lender.

She also led the digital cultural transformation of one of the United Kingdom’s largest banks, including defining the organisational structure, identifying the talent required, and shaping the training programme to bring about the cultural shift.
