Director of McKinsey & Company, where he gained extensive
international management consulting experience. He joined the firm

relationships in Australia through 1983 and then established the
resident McKinsey practices in East-Asia outside Japan during the
rest of the 1980s.
For 30 years, Terrey has led fundamental review of strategy and
organisation for a wide range of leading corporations. During the
last decade his relationships span financial institutions (eg
investment banking, funds management), service industries (eg
leading real estate, law and accounting firms), industrials (eg

has been awarded an Order of Australia for his contributions.
Before joining McKinsey, Terrey was a production and design
