Professional Biography:
I help private sector and nonprofit organizations define who they want to be in the world and build the capabilities they need to make that vision a reality. Over the last 10+ years, I have helped organizations address challenges in the following areas:

* Strategy: Strategy & business model development; strategic planning; business performance management and metrics
* Organizational Transformation: Operating model & organization design; culture evolution; strategic cost reduction; program & project management excellence
* Mergers & Acquisitions: M&A and post-merger integration; financial modeling

Prior to serving as an independent strategy advisor, I was a Manager at Strategy&, the strategy consulting group at PwC, where I advised health insurers, healthcare providers, and digital healthcare companies on strategic and organizational challenges. Previously, I helped a leading international development NGO double in size through a transformational acquisition and post-merger integration, and I have advised clients on capital markets transactions as an investment banker with Merrill Lynch.

My philosophy and approach are defined by a few core beliefs. Strategy is about being better than anyone else in the world for a particular set of customers—I sometimes provocatively call this “making sure your organization deserves to exist.” Your strategy is no more than a concept until it is embodied in a coherent organization. Your organization is much more than the lines and boxes in your org chart—the “make or break” factor in sustainable success lies in organizational culture and other informal elements of organization.

My passion lies in helping others employ these perspectives to take their organizations to the next level. I love to learn, discuss and advise on these topics and I welcome you to connect and reach out if you would like to chat!
