Meet Jay

What did you do before joining McChrystal Group?

While attending the University of St Andrews, I spent my summers working with an investment team at an asset management firm and as an assistant coach of a local swim team. During the school year I bartended in the taproom of a local brewery.

Why did you join McChrystal Group?

I joined McChrystal Group for the opportunity to learn how leaders can help drive teams and organizations from incredible people who have decades of experience across many diverse sectors, and to work in an extremely fast-paced and collaborative environment.

What has been your proudest moment at McChrystal Group?

During my final review session with the Summer Analysts I managed, we were able to look back at the value they had provided to McChrystal Group, the client, and our team over the last few months. The progress they had made as teammates, individuals, and leaders was inspiring and pushed me to be better.

What are your favorite books (besides Team of Teams!)?

Favorite books are: Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing, Matterhorn: a Novel of the Vietnam War by Karl Marlantes
