Clifford Barnes

Director

Clifford is the head of our Asia Pacific specialists, the highly technical architecture and engineering arm of the Oliver Wyman Digital Practice. He has spent the past 18 years driving transformation, innovation, and organizational change to multinational companies, both inside and outside of consulting. He has a keen passion for building highly talented, high-performing, collaborative global teams that consistently and relentlessly drive impact, and push the boundaries of possibility.

I have been incredibly fortunate, in that my career has allowed me to travel the world, experiencing many working cultures on almost every continent. Whether leading tech teams in Ukraine and America, running transformation programs in Europe, or consulting in Vietnam and China, I have found a deep respect for the value and need of diversity. I strive to be a leader that can harness the best of diversity, build effective teams that embrace it, and have loads of fun doing it.

Clifford leads both technical and non-technical functions, and has held global leadership positions in industry, prior to joining Oliver Wyman. His team delivers bespoke software and data solutions to all industry verticals, while closely collaborating with Oliver Wyman consultants.

I love building success and trust with clients. Delivering a successful solution to a problem might be the deliverable, but true success comes with leaving a client in a better position to solve the next problem themselves. Ending an engagement with a strong reputation, a mutual respect and a high level of trust is an ethos engrained in everything I do at Oliver Wyman.
