Managing Director & Senior Partner
Trish Stroman leads the firm’s Social Impact (SI) practice in North America. Since joining BCG in 2005, she has focused on social impact for much of her career. She is a core member of the Health Care and Public Sector practices and leads BCG’s global health impact area.
In her work with foundations, public-private partnerships, and public sector entities, Trish brings BCG's cutting-edge knowledge to bear, with an eye to customizing approaches in order to meet the needs of complex stakeholder environments and confront long-term intractable problems such as HIV/AIDS and malaria. Her work is increasingly focused at the intersection of the public and private sectors as organizations collaborate across sectors toward the sustainable development goals.
BCG’s global health team shapes the investment strategies of the largest global health funders, advises clients on the optimal use of digital and technology in global health, works across sectors to develop innovative financing strategies, and supports governments to improve health systems in lower-income countries.
Before joining BCG, Trish was an internal consultant for the physician group at Kaiser Permanente.
