NEW YORK (November 16, 2018) - AlixPartners, the global consulting firm, announced that Rob McNish has joined as a Managing Director, working in the firm’s Energy & Process Industries practice. He will be based in AlixPartners’ New York office.

Rob brings with him a broad set of capabilities in the energy sector and across several other industries, as well as deep expertise in the engineered-equipment industry. He also has experience in corporate finance and enterprise risk-management consulting, and as a business entrepreneur.

He joins AlixPartners from A.T. Kearney Inc. in New York, where since 2016 he served in that firm’s industrial, transportation, automotive, and aerospace practice as well as its M&A, private-equity, and merger-integration practice.

From 1994 to 2014, he worked at McKinsey & Company Inc. in Washington, DC, most recently as a senior partner. While there, he specialized in industrial and energy companies, corporate finance, and enterprise risk management. Prior to that, he held financial positions at Petro-Canada Inc. (now part of Suncor Energy Inc.), Burns Fry Ltd., and Waterous Securities Inc.

Rob holds an MBA in analytic finance from the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago, and a bachelor’s degree in finance from the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary in Canada.

“We are delighted to welcome Rob with his diverse background as both a top-flight consultant and entrepreneur,” said Simon Freakley, CEO of AlixPartners. “His unique experience and deep skills will help our clients, across many industries, meet the demands of today’s fast-moving marketplace.”
