Alejandro Vanags is a powerhouse in the oil and gas sector, who knows how to navigate the rocky seas of the energy transition. 

An extensive background in energy operations brings Alejandro to Oliver Wyman's Energy Team, where he advises on strategy projects, operationally-based transformations, digital, reorganizations, post-merger integration work and improvements in efficiencies. Alejandro attributes his vast industry knowledge to his extensive career path, beginning as a wireline and testing engineer for an oilfield service company. He progressed professionally from there and has become very familiar with operations of oil and gas and other facets of the energy sector. 

I am a product of the path I traveled, working in both onshore and offshore facilities provided me with a strong understanding of front line operations, while my consulting career allowed me to develop strategic transformation programs to drive higher profitability at scale.

Currently, the oil and gas industry is in a time of transformation, particularly in upstream. The impeding demand destruction and decarbonization pressures are forcing the industry to re-think and redefine itself. Alejandro's familiarity with the industry, coupled with his motivation to drive change, allows him to drive larger transformations across areas of the Oil & Gas, Chemicals. Mining and Utilities.

We want to continue to build a very powerful energy practice. Something that is bigger and greater than us and will be a legacy for younger generations to come.

Alejandro prioritizes the needs of those around him both professionally and personally. He finds great value in the time he spends with his wife and three daughters, especially when they are able to set sail. Sailing, a skill he first learned from his father growing up on the coast of Venezuela, is one of Alejandro’s most treasured past times.


Alejandro has a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the Universidad Metropolitana in Venezuela and a Masters in Business Administration from Columbia University.
