Senior Partner

McKinsey & Company

Country or State

United States


I am a senior partner at McKinsey and the global co-leader of our Semiconductors Practice, working with leaders across the semiconductor, industrial, and automotive industries to transform their operations and implement winning strategies. Before returning to the United States as the managing partner of our Seattle office, I led the firm’s Advanced Industries work in the Asia–Pacific region. During my time at the firm, I’ve founded our Design Lab in Taipei, which generates detailed value- and cost-driven insights for products in industries as diverse as clean technology, consumer electronics, and electric vehicles. I also led McKinsey’s acquisition of QuantumBlack, a premier data-science company based in London. My more recent work has included conducting commercial due diligence on more than 15 semiconductor companies on behalf of strategic buyers and financial investors, mobilizing machine-learning techniques to lift the effectiveness of large-scale engineering workforces across oil and gas, consumer electronics, industrial electronics, and semiconductor design by 10 to 65 percent, and supporting a photovoltaic-system provider in transforming its procurement function. Prior to beginning my career with McKinsey, I was a Special Warfare officer in the US Navy. Following my military service, I designed mixed-signal integrated circuits for a multinational IT company.
