The company was founded by Mr. Andrew Thomas Kearney. The history of this firm dates back to 1926 when James McKinsey founded McKinsey & Co. When James McKinsey left the firm in 1935 the remaining members decided to merge with Scovell, Wellington & Co. to form McKinsey Wellington & Co. However due to differences in opinion of the remaining partners the company was divided. The accounting practice was taken by Scovell, Wellington & Co. while the management practice was split up into two firms: the McKinsey, Kearney & Company and McKinsey & Co. The McKinsey, Kearney & Co. was nothing but the Chicago office of the merged firm that was run by Andrew Thomas Kearney while the New York Office that was run by Marwin Bower continued to be called as McKinsey & Company. Thereafter in 1947, exclusive rights to the name, ‘McKinsey & Company’ was purchased by Marwin Bower from Tom Kearney and therefore McKinsey, Kearney & Co. was renamed as A.T. Kearney & Company.
