Cornelius Baur

Managing Partner Germany and Austria at McKinsey

"The digital future is a reality. We need to shape it in the most meaningful way."

Cornelius Baur has been with McKinsey since 1990 and took the position of Office Manager in 2014. This role has placed him at the forefront of digitalizing the company and, via Digital McKinsey, helping external clients face challenges posed by the tech revolution like big data, digital business models and IT strategy. He has supported similarly ambitious transformation programs in the automotive supply industry, advised aerospace and automotive companies on international post-merger integration and collaborated with clients in the high-tech and energy sectors on their strategy and growth programs. After he’s been using the skills he’s learned over the years to help companies adapt to digital life, he hopes to impart this expertise to participants in the program.
