Martin Lindqvist first joined the Swedish practice of McKinsey in 2016 on completion of an International Business masters with the Stockholm School of Economics, before then crossing to the management consultancy’s Sydney office in mid-2018. He was appointed as an associate partner two years later, with altogether just a six-and-a-half-year rise from McKinsey induction to partnership.

A leader of the firm’s Transformation Practice for the Asia Pacific, Gemma Corke has been with McKinsey in Melbourne since 2013, joining after a four-and-a-half-year stint advising companies and banks on distressed real estate assets as a manager at PPB Advisory. She earned her MBA from Melbourne Business School, where she has also served as a committee member for its alumni council.

Guilherme Riederer, a former colleague of Corke’s in Melbourne before transferring with the firm in 2020, has meanwhile been named as a new partner in Auckland. A 2012 summer associate while he completed his MBA with Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, Riederer would later join McKinsey in Sao Paulo, before then spending three years with the firm in Melbourne from 2017.

McKinsey’s Australian & New Zealand partnership has approximately five dozen members, although not presently a publicly-announced managing partner following the recent resignation of Angus Dawson after three years at the helm.
