Steve John

Partner, Global Director of Communications



A relatively low profile has not stopped Steve John from establishing himself as one of the UK’s most respected communications leaders, responsible for management consulting firm McKinsey’s transformation into a global content leader.

John joined McKinsey as global communications head in early 2014 from Bupa, where he spent almost five years as corporate affairs director. Prior to joining Bupa, John headed corporate affairs at Pepsico UK and Ireland, after leading DLA Piper's government affairs and media practice.

At McKinsey, John's duties include external communications, public affairs, media relations, issues management and internal communications. He also leads brand management, digital comms, CSR and alumni relations.
