Coach Bios

Who are the former interviewers that will be my coaches?

One thing clients love about my coaching service is that all coaches are former interviewers at McKinsey, Bain, or BCG.  I have hand-picked and trained each one to conduct interviews in a way that is consistent with my Look Over My Shoulder program. All are well-versed in both the interviewer-led AND the candidate-led interview, so you may decide to work with any of these coaches whose availability matches your schedule:

Pete is a former Senior Associate Consultant with Bain & Company and has conducted over 3,000 case interviews. He joined Bain as a summer Associate Consultant Intern, for which there are very few spots. One of his projects won Bain's North American Results Challenge for greatest economic value delivered to any client that year. Pete has coached aspiring consultants in 30 countries and has interviewed hundreds of thought leaders on professional skills development for a Top 10 career podcast.

Jo is a former Senior Associate with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in their London office. She has conducted nearly 1,000 case interviews. Jo holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a Master of Engineering from the University of Cambridge. She has interviewed candidates for roles in Product Management, Account Management, Customer Services, Design, and Data Scientist, and hired over 50 people for startups.

Ben is a former Junior Engagement Manager with McKinsey, where he focused on strategy and operations work for Telecom & Media clients across Europe. Ben helped recruit MBA and PhD level candidates to McKinsey, having conducted over 100 mock and real case interviews, and led multiple PhD recruitment and case coaching workshops. As an entrepreneur himself, Ben is currently coaching multiple early stage startups with strategy development, pitching and presentation skills. 

Brian is a former McKinsey Engagement Manager in the Public & Social Sector Practice and Strategy & Corporate Finance practice. He has been intimately involved with all aspects of McKinsey's recruiting process in the US and Asia, from (1) screening / selecting resumes, (2) to interviewing candidates at all levels, and (3) mentoring students and associates in navigating the recruiting process. Brian has conducted nearly 1,500 case interviews and has a range of interview experience, including banking, private equity, technology, and different types of consulting.

Jenny is a 6-year BCG veteran and former BCG Project Leader and interviewer. Though primarily based out of BCG’s Chicago office, she spent 2 years internationally in multi-month project assignments in Dubai, Budapest, New Delhi, and Tokyo. Her primary casework focus was on consumer marketing, operations, and company organization. In addition to her BCG Project Leader responsibilities, she was heavily involved in BCG Training and Recruiting and has conducted nearly 900 real and mock interviews throughout her career.

Jerrod is a former consultant with the BCG NYC office, where he focused on financial institutions, people and organization, and strategy. He has worked closely with diversity recruiting around the U.S. for the NYC office and knows the process intimately.
