Partner & Managing Director, Sydney
At BCG, Pioneers have the courage to take action on unique insights. They share and activate ideas that enable our clients to gain the competitive edge. Chloë empowers and inspires others.
My greatest impact at BCG has been when I have helped public sector organizations improve how the public receives their services, whether public transport, health care delivery, education, or electricity supply.
My background prior to BCG was in public policy and international development, having worked in Australia, sub-Saharan Africa, the US, and Europe. What brought me to BCG was an aspiration to work in an environment that would increase my professional skill set and allow me to make a difference, as well as work on a broad variety of topics in a high-performing environment.
I’ve had amazing professional development opportunities through my work on a wide range of public sector issues. I’ve also had the opportunity to learn from and get to know amazing people from very diverse backgrounds.
One of my most rewarding experiences at BCG was when I saw how our work for a major Australian rail network was able to have a real impact on the public. We helped our client deliver a step-change improvement in the reliability and quality of services across the rail network. This was the first project in which I appreciated how impactful and rewarding BCG’s client work could be.
One of the things that has kept me at BCG for so long is the luxury of working with people who are incredibly talented, motivated, curious, energetic, and dedicated to doing everything really well to find the best possible outcome for clients.
Chloë holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the Australian National University and a bachelor of arts (honors I) from the University of Sydney, where she won the university medal. She has a doctorate in employment policy from the University of Oxford, where she studied as a Rhodes Scholar. Prior to BCG, Chloë worked for the United Nations and for the charity Olympic Aid. Chloë is also a member of the board of Swimming Australia.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the variety of work I get to do and that we work closely with senior clients on issues that really matter to them. As a result, our work changes how things are done and has real impact on people. I also enjoy the people we get to work with at BCG; they are exceptionally intelligent, highly motivated, and curious.
Q: How have you benefited from a mentoring relationship at BCG?
A: I have been lucky to have some remarkable mentors who have supported me from the beginning of my career and continue to do so today. My mentors have taken the time to help me discover what I’m interested in, shape my career, and deal with challenges along the way.
Q: What are some of your favorite things to do outside of the office?
A: Outside of work, I spend my time with my husband and kids. I’m also on the board of Swimming Australia, a not-for-profit that leads the sport in Australia—from our national team to ensuring kids learn to swim and participate in the sport.
