Brazilian Offices - A Fast-Growing Office

In 1926, after 5 years as a member of an accounting firm, James O. McKinsey decided to start his own firm to give financial and management advice to corporations. It differed from the accounting and management-engineering firms of its day in its focus on top management. This perspective required consultants to address specific problems (e.g., pricing, distribution, outsourcing) in the context of industry structure, competitive possibilities, and the integration of functional specialties.

In 1933, McKinsey's small firm was joined by Marvin Bower, a young lawyer from Cleveland, who brought a commitment to professionalism, and who always insisted on "putting the client's interests first". Under Bower's leadership, McKinsey & Company shifted the focus of its recruiting away from established, senior experts who had worked for many years in a single industry toward graduate students who could learn to be good problem solvers and consultants. Thus, McKinsey & Company became the first consulting firm to hire directly from graduate business schools.

McKinsey's rapid growth is the result of our success with clients. Today we have more than 9.000 consulting professionals, located in 100 offices in 56 countries. We are a global consulting firm with a mission to help clients make distinctive, lasting, and substantial improvements in their performance and to build a great firm that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional people.

McKinsey was one of the first top management-consulting firms to establish local offices in Latin America. Currently, Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Lima, Mexico City, Monterrey, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Santiago and São Paulo make up McKinsey’s LatAm office. 

The LatAm Office serves a broad range of clients across different industries, such as financial services, telecommunications, utilities, basic materials, manufacturing, retail, and consumer goods. Most of our engagements aim to develop new strategies and to improve organizational and operational performance. 

With over 60 partners and more than 500 consultants, we not only maintain a preeminent position in the region in terms of expertise and skills, but most importantly we give our consultants and clients the opportunity to access and learn from a broad and deep pool of knowledge.
