Will Bachman became an independent professional in 2008 when he left McKinsey to start his own consulting practice. He thought it would be helpful to connect with other independent professionals, and so he began organizing events and creating a community. That community has grown substantially, and today Will is the Managing Partner of Umbrex, a global community of over 1,000 independent management consultants with prior experience at McKinsey, Bain, or BCG.
Will created a 90-video guide to setting up your own practice. Will is also the host of Unleashed, a podcast that explores how to thrive as an independent professional, where he has interviewed guests including Seth Godin and Steven Pressfield.
Business Insider named Will one of 38 “Power Players in Consulting.” He is a graduate of Harvard College, Columbia Business School, and a former nuclear-trained submarine officer. He lives with his wife and three children in New York City and their farm in Pennsylvania.
