James Oscar McKinsey was the founder of McKinsey & Company. Management theory was still in its infancy when McKinsey founded the firm that bears his name in 1926. He had left his academic career as a professor of accounting at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business in 1935, to build a firm that provided finance and budgeting services, but quickly gained a reputation for providing advice on organization and management issues.
