Goldman Sachs’ Asia-Pacific co-president Kevin Sneader took an unusual route into the highest echelon of investment banking, via management consultancy. The Canadian-British executive had previously worked at McKinsey for his entire career, after joining as a graduate in 1989, rising to the position of global managing partner from 2018 to 2021, when he was responsible for evolving the consultancy’s culture with a move towards greater transparency. He had previously been the firm’s UK and Ireland managing partner, and chair of its Asian business from 2014 to 2018, when he lived in Hong Kong, as he also did between 1996 and 1998.

Sneader will serve in his new role alongside Goldman Sachs veteran Todd Leland with a role heavily focused on China, where Goldman received approval in 2021 for a wealth management joint venture with local bank ICBC.

Kevin Sneader is married to Amy, with whom he has two daughters.
