About Kim

Kim is the head of our Technology, Media & Telecommunications Practice in Europe. He is also part of the core leadership team in McKinsey’s financial-institutions group and our operations and technology work globally.

Kim serves a large number of clients, focusing primarily on strategy development, corporate finance, and large-scale operational and digital transformations.

Recent examples of his client work include the following:

  • leading many transformations at global and regional telecommunications operators
  • defining strategic and operational reviews for global banks, wealth managers, and insurance companies
  • developing the strategic, commercial, and operational transformation of a financial-technology business
  • helping to digitize processes to drive improved customer journeys and satisfaction, lessen time to market, and reduce costs by more than 70 percent
  • leading the commercial and operational transformation for a large technology company, improving the earnings-before-interest-and-taxes margin from 7 to 20 percent and organic growth from 1 to more than 10 percent
  • spearheading the strategic review of a technology company to evaluate future strategic options, leading to a refocusing of the company (such as divesting 40 percent of the business and reinvesting in core products and technology platforms)
