Feb 25 (Reuters) - Management consultancy McKinsey & Co has elected 51-year-old Kevin Sneader as its new global managing partner for a three-year term beginning in July, the firm said on Sunday.
Sneader, currently the Asia chairman, was chosen in a three-stage election by the firm’s more than 560 senior partners to be the twelfth partner to lead McKinsey since its founding in 1926.
Sneader, a Briton who has worked at McKinsey for 26 years, will take the top post after Dominic Barton's nine-year tenure as global managing partner, the firm said in a statement. bit.ly/2GJog33
