Lindsey Pitt started her career as a strategy consultant at McKinsey, largely in retail, CPG and media; some strategy work, some implementation work. She subsequently joined Strategos, a boutique consultancy focused on organic growth in blue-chip organizations, where she collaborated with clients to design insight programs and develop and pitch opportunities for investment (think Shark Tank or Dragons’ Den).
In contrast to McKinsey strategy work, these projects were mostly handled by clients themselves through facilitated workshops, which was great for building engagement/ownership. She freelanced as a consultant in UK for 8 years before moving to San Francisco in 2010. Since she wanted to get her hands dirty, she joined the managed services team at an alternative legal services provider, designing solutions and reengineering processes.
In normal times, Lindsey volunteers at 826 Valencia, a not-for-profit that supports under-resourced students with writing skills. She also talks about writing a crime novel, but doesn’t actually do it. She’d love to collaborate on organic growth projects, process reengineering, and strategy development/execution work. She also has deep subject matter expertise in Legal Department redesign(!)
