Alex is a partner and leads our German-speaking Finance and Risk Practice and European platform for Non-Financial Risks. This platform focuses on regulatory compliance, anti-financial crime, operational risk, and resilience.

He provides advice to leading financial institutions across Europe, focusing on regulatory response strategy and the optimization of control effectiveness and efficiency. His specific area of focus is corporate and institutional banking. Recently, he has designed and successfully implemented high-profile compliance and anti-financial crime transformation programs in response to major global regulators.

I enjoy bringing people together across client-facing front office teams and their risk, finance, and compliance functions to drive strong and sustainable business outcomes

Alex has designed and executed large-scale digital, cost, and regulatory transformation programs for banks, asset managers, and market infrastructure players. His clients reply on his expertise in optimizing their business and operating models from end-to-end. This involves combining immediate control enhancements with strategic solutions to establish more effective and efficient controls that deliver value to clients and stakeholders.

In every project he undertakes, Alex strives to embody three core values: tenacity, humility, and insight. He has worked for clients in 20 European countries and speaks four languages.

Married to a virologist, and with two boys, he is interested in sustainability beyond banking. He leads the Oliver Wyman Alumni network in Germany and, as part of our social impact initiatives, aids non-profit environmental organizations in amplifying their impact through development projects and educational campaigns.
