Join us for a session with Alex Panas and Ruxandra Tentis, who will talk to us about their work and McKinsey's knowledge development on what it takes to grow and turnaround sponsor-owned companies.

Alex is a Senior Partner at McKinsey and leader of the Private Equity Practice for the Americas. The primary focus of Alex’s client work is on diligence and portfolio-company efforts for private-equity owners. He also serves private-equity firms on strategy, organization, operations, and investment-diligence initiatives. He has deep expertise in the industrial, retail, consumer packaged goods, food service, and operations areas. Examples of Alex’s recent client work include leading a portfolio company transformation focused on design-to-value and sourcing―which delivered over $150 million in EBITDA improvement. He also supported a leading distressed-focused firm with diligence and investment decisions across a range of sectors. For a portfolio company, he developed a sales and growth strategy that resulted in a doubling of sales and significantly improved returns.

Ruxandra is a Partner in McKinsey’s Boston office and a leader in McKinsey’s North American Private Equity and Financial Services practices. She has over 10 years of experience in financial services, with core expertise in data and information services, digital, multichannel marketing and distribution.
