Who You'll Work With

McKinsey’s Pricing, Arrangements and Client enablement (PACE) function is focused on driving commercial excellence. This particular role sits within the ‘client arrangements desk’, alongside other commercially minded professionals who help to structure and negotiate non-standard arrangements including performance-based arrangements and equity-based arrangements.
You will oversee the team that supports our Americas (North and Latin American) partners and client service teams. These individuals support the client arrangement approval bodies, counsel teams/partners on arrangements structuring and negotiate arrangements directly with clients. You will also liaise with other functional leaders who have a role in shaping/approving including professionals in our Legal, Risk, Tax, and Accounting functions along with McKinsey’s global approval body (especially for equity-based arrangements).
You will join one of our North America offices.

What You'll Do

You will oversee the team that supports our North and Latin American partners and client service teams. You will support them on the most significant (largest, most complex) opportunities including joining client service team counselling/coaching sessions, joining the approval meeting discussions, and leading or supporting select client negotiations. You will convene the global approval body when the arrangement originates in the Americas.
You will work closely with regional finance (NA and LT CFOs and client finance teams) on topics like performance management and strategic initiatives (e.g., arrangements strategies, partner training, etc.).
You will also always lead at least one global initiative (e.g., process harmonization, system implementation, partner training, etc.) on behalf of the team, working with your peers in other regions to influence change. These initiatives are often sponsored by leadership from Finance, McKinsey’s board of directors, or management team. This also serves as a way for you to become a SME for a specific topic.
