Lucy d’Arville, the head Bain & Company’s Australia Healthcare practice, has been named as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.

The leader of global strategy and management consulting firm Bain & Company’s Australian healthcare practice – Lucy d’Arville – has joined an exclusive community of the world’s most promising young social activists, business leaders, public servants, artists and technologists under the age of 40: elected as one of 126 Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum.

Along with heading up the firm’s local healthcare practice, the Sydney-based Bain partner also serves as a core member of its Asia Pacific Financial Services and Performance Improvement practices, originally joining the firm in 2005 (with a four-year hiatus with the Achilles Group in London between 2009 and 2012). In addition, d’Arville leads Bain’s social impact efforts in Australia.

“Lucy is a force for change and deeply committed to shaping the global future,” Bain & Company’s Asia Pacific regional managing partner Satish Shankar, who was appointed to the top role at the beginning of the month. “She truly embodies what it means to be a Young Global Leader and, on behalf of her colleagues around the world, I congratulate her on this honour.”Bain partner Lucy d'Arville selected as a Young Global leader by the WEFd’Arville joins a group of just 126 Young Global Leaders worldwide – including seven current members and alumni from Bain – following a rigorous selection process to assess nominations from around the globe. d’Arville was noted for her work on transforming large payer and provider organisations in the healthcare sector and impact in creating more customer-centric and efficient operations.

Recognised as an inspirational leader at the firm, for both her commitment to investing in its people and leading Bain’s local social impact program, d’Arville is credited for her significant contribution to combating social disadvantage through her work with non-profit organisations such as OzHarvest and Restacking the Odds – which feature among Bain’s local social impact partners.

Having committed to investing $1 billion worth of pro bono consulting globally over the coming decade, Bain’s community work in Australia features a range of programs, such as fundraising and volunteering (every year the firm closes its doors for a day to allow staff to work on charitable projects), and through ‘externships’ – six to twelve month staff secondments to social organisations.

“I am delighted and honoured to be selected by the World Economic Forum as a Young Global Leader,” said d’Arville of her selection. “I look forward to working with the Young Global Leader community to help drive positive social change.” d’Arville holds a Bachelor of Actuarial Studies and Bachelor of Economics from the Australian National University (ANU).
