Partner Automotive/Mobility Practice Leader Southfield

Nearly 20 years ago, we moved from the UK to the United States for a work assignment — and never went back. Everything is less stressful, and we love the four seasons. A Michigan summer is so much more pleasant than an English “summer.”
Mark Barrott
Partner, Automotive/Mobility Practice Leader


As the leader of our automotive/mobility practice, I help automotive clients define future strategies, develop executable plans, and realize their long-term objectives. The magnitude and speed of the transition in the industry requires long-term thinking combined with the practical experience of knowing what matters in this industry. Many of my clients are automotive suppliers looking to adapt to emerging technologies, market challenges, and risks. They appreciate that I bring innovative solutions to their most complex challenges.

I was attracted to this career because of the variety of projects I could work on. I believe the best client relationships are made by working shoulder to shoulder to achieve meaningful results. I love that this profession challenges me every day.

I enjoy sharing our thought leadership with diverse audiences that are either directly or indirectly impacted by the industry transition. It’s a great opportunity to engage with broader perspectives and enhance the depth and relevance of our insights and analysis.

I received a B.A. in urban planning and a M.S. in economics from Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom.

Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, golf, tennis, and cooking. Both our daughters run cross country and track, so we love watching them compete in their events.
