She previously worked in the firm’s Boston, New Jersey, and New York offices, and is a former member of McKinsey’s partnership service team—the firm’s equivalent of an executive committee—in which she oversaw client services and served as an action officer to the client committee from the Shareholders Council. Clarisse is a leader in our global Consumer Packaged Goods and Retail Practices, and works predominantly in food consumer, luxury, and specialty retail. She is also a member of the McKinsey Global Institute Council, which publishes research on economic, business, and technology trends. With a core expertise in strategy and large-scale transformations, Clarisse works with leading consumer goods, retailer, agribusiness, food service, and luxury goods companies. She helps clients with challenges such as international expansion, external growth, digitization of the business model, marketing and commercial strategies, and optimization of operations at scale. Clarisse is also deeply involved in the Sustainability Practice, in particular the consumer sectors, and she leads the firm’s circular-economy work, collaborating with pioneering companies and codesigning innovative models. She has coauthored several reports and publications on plastics, waste, food transition, and how artificial intelligence can contribute to new circular-economy models. She also publishes on the topic of the future of corporations.
