Umbrex is pleased to welcome . Jacob began his career in McKinsey’s strategy group in 2009 and has worked in a variety of internal and external consulting roles focused primarily on customer acquisition and new market entry strategies including Voice of the Customer research across industries ranging from financial services, to education technology, to industrial products.
