Meet Cleo

What did you do before joining McChrystal Group?

Prior to my current role, I managed lines of effort for clients in consumer goods, financial services, mining, and software industries.

Before joining McChrystal Group, I conducted research on terrorism and radicalization for a think tank in Singapore. Previously, I worked in marketing and public relations for enterprise software companies in Silicon Valley, California.

Why did you join McChrystal Group?

I like the fast-paced environment of a growing company and the room for innovation that McChrystal Group allows members at all levels to have. I enjoy getting to know the strengths and challenges of teams and organizations across regions and industries and helping them solve them.

What has been your proudest moment at McChrystal Group?

Watching a client make a quality decision in two weeks that had been stalled for months. Helping a client develop a whole new business line and exponentially grow it in the two years since inception.

What sport or hobby do you have outside of work?

I am a passionate equestrian and love to compete in eventing and show jumping.
