 // . //  Our People //  David Gillespie

Having worked in financial services and consulting for over 20 years, David brings a wealth of experience to his clients. But sometimes the most important contribution he makes is providing perspective, pragmatism, and a healthy dose of common sense. 

David Gillespie leads the retail banking and wealth management function in Europe.

He works with a large team of partners and consultants advising banks on strategic, organisational, and regulatory challenges and opportunities. He is an expert in bringing together people from diverse backgrounds with different ways of thinking to creatively solve clients’ toughest, most complex challenges.

Oliver Wyman’s global, multi-sector experience allows us to bring our UK clients the best insights and learnings from other industries and countries

With changes in regulation, advances in technology, and an unsettled political climate, large companies turn to Oliver Wyman to prepare for the future. David and the team help these organisations combine their hard-won benefits of scale with much faster adaptability and innovation, enabling them to be better prepared for an ongoing, unpredictable business environment. These efforts can involve developing fundamentally different operating models, new business ventures, and new ways of working.

Scaled agility is key for big organisations. Those that adapt and innovate at speed will be best placed to succeed

As a returning Oliver Wyman alumnus, David also leads the retail banking and wealth management function in Europe. He encourages fellow alumni to keep up with the firm’s latest news, publications, and events via banking and wealth management function in Europe.
