Oliver Wyman has strengthened its Australian partner team with Simon Pelletier, who brings over two decades of strategy consulting and banking experience to the firm.

Throughout his career, Pelletier has worked with most of Australia’s largest financial services firms on core strategic challenges including corporate strategy, mergers & acquisitions, and large-scale technology transformation.

He is particularly passionate about working with business leaders to catalyse strategic value out of technology modernisation. He has also contributed significantly to the continued evolution of the financial services regulators as an advisor on regulatory strategy, capability, and a contributor to regulatory dialogue.

Commenting on his move, he said: “At a time of radical change in the consulting industry, Oliver Wyman operates at a unique intersection between deep industry expertise and tier 1 consulting capability. The business here is already experiencing significant growth and I see a real opportunity for Oliver Wyman to continue to scale its presence in financial services consulting services.”

Ed Emanuel, Oliver Wyman’s Market Leader for Australia and New Zealand, said: “I look forward to seeing the impact that Simon will deliver for our clients in this space in Australia as well as the firm’s regional practice.”

Meanwhile, in Europe, Oliver Wyman recently landed one of the banking industry’s most prestigious gigs when the firm was appointed the lead strategy consultant and integration advisor to UBS during its acquisition of Credit Suisse.
