Drew joined MC Advisory in January 2021 as Managing Director, leading the launch of the firm with a vision to accelerate growth and development in Atlantic Canada. As a transformational global business leader, he has successfully led multiple million- and billion-dollar business units for a world- leading firm in consulting, technology services, and digital transformation. He has led teams and worked with Fortune 500 companies in more than 50 countries, earning a strong reputation for building new global businesses and turning around challenging operations in difficult environments.

Drew is known for helping organizations identify and unlock their unique value, developing future-proof strategies designed to deliver success over the long term. Under his leadership, MC Advisory has a sharp focus on a select set of relevant service offerings, aimed at helping entrepreneurs build and execute for long-term growth, supporting both private and public sector leaders to pursue transformation and advancement, and guiding leaders to build engaged and inclusive workforces while optimizing organizational effectiveness.

Prior to joining MC Advisory, Drew led his own advisory firm focused on helping tech startups to successfully scale their operations. A leader in strategy and transformation, he has previously worked with Ernst & Young in Toronto as an equity partner and spent over 18 years with Paris-based Capgemini where, as Global Chief Operating Officer, he designed, launched, and led the firm’s first Global Practice, a 2.5-billion-dollar business of over 15,000 professionals.

Excited to return home to Atlantic Canada, Drew now proudly lives in New Brunswick, where he enjoys family time and outdoor pursuits such as fly fishing and golfing, along with cooking, painting, and music.
