Ian Davis has today won the leadership vote at McKinsey to become the firm’s new Managing Partner. Davis was standing against Michael Patsalos-Fox in a vote of Senior Partners at the firm. He will now take over the McKinsey helm from the outgoing Rajat Gupta on the 1st July. Gupta stands down having led the firm for the maximum-permitted three consecutive 3 year terms.

Will McKinsey's India focus go after Rajat Gupta moves out ?

Davis is understood to favour a return-to-values drive, encompassing greater investment in training and development, and a renewed focus on working with top clients on top issues.
