Kirsty McKnight: Future Leader

Kirsty McKnight, a Senior Consultant based in our London office, has been named winner of the Future Leader category in the 2021 This Can Happen Awards.

Since joining Oliver Wyman, Kirsty has thrown herself into many causes that speak to her heart, including the UK Mental Health & Wellbeing committee, the global Women of Oliver Wyman network, social impact activities, and many more. In her day job, she is known for her exceptional organisational skills as well as her creativity and ability to build relationships peers and clients.

Outside of work, Kirsty volunteers as an Ambassador for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and during lockdown has taken up cycling with the aim of completing her first triathlon this year for the charity.  

Kirsty’s work has been particularly important during the COVID lockdowns. By supporting colleagues and being a key part of our community through a challenging period, she has made a real difference.
