Last month, McKinsey & Company announced plans to expand its footprint in the Midwest with the opening of a St. Louis office, the firm’s seventh Midwest location. The firm last expanded its U.S. presence in 2014, when it opened its Denver office. With St. Louis, the company will now have offices in 132 cities worldwide, employing more than 30,000 people globally. St. Louis is home to 10 Fortune 500 companies across a range of sectors and one of the fastest growing tech startup markets in the country, says Darryl Piasecki, McKinsey’s St. Louis Partner. For Piasecki, who hails from St. Louis and returned to the area in 2008, the new office is particularly special. “I’m proud of what’s happening in St. Louis, from the startup scene to the reinvigorated civic approach to economic development,” he says. “It’s a unique time in St. Louis, and McKinsey’s excited to be part of it.” Piasecki sat down with Consulting to discuss the new office, the St. Louis market and the opportunity for McKinsey.
