Nigel Andrade, Kearney’s former Australia and New Zealand managing partner, has been appointed to the firm’s Global Business Policy Council.

Sydney-based Kearney partner and global board of directors member Nigel Andrade has been appointed as a Senior Fellow in the management consulting firm’s Global Business Policy Council (GBPC) – one of the world’s leading think-tanks.

A more than three-decade management consulting veteran, Andrade has been with Kearney in Australia since 2013, following over twelve years as a partner with McKinsey in various offices around the world.

Succeeded by Adam Dixon at the start of 2020, Andrade served as A/NZ managing director for three years, before joining the consultancy’s global board of directors and founding customer experience lab Kearney IGNITE.

In addition, Andrade serves on the board of UNICEF Australia (alongside Deloitte’s Social Impact consulting practice leader Tharani Jegatheeswaran), expressing a passion for stakeholder capitalism and helping companies to align performance with purpose.

While continuing in his global director and IGNITE leadership roles, Andrade will now be tasked as a Global Business Policy Council senior fellow with advising boards and CEOs on their social and environmental challenges.

“Nigel’s unique perspective and set of skills will be vital to helping our clients navigate extremely challenging and volatile times,” said GBPC Managing Director Erik Peterson. “Corporations can no longer focus exclusively on the bottom line. They must find ways to benefit internal and external stakeholders, account for and mitigate their own environmental impact on the planet – and do this while navigating global macroeconomic and geopolitical shocks.”

“Excited and humbled to have the opportunity to work with amazing leaders like Erik Peterson and Paul Laudicina (GBPC founder and Kearney Chairman Emeritus) – embarking on what is likely to be a decade long effort to rigorously understand and uncover what it takes for corporates to move beyond good intentions and truly become a ‘force for good’ at scale in this rapidly changing world,” Andrade said in response in a post to LinkedIn.
