Gwendoline joined Oliver Wyman after 25 years of a successful career in the industry, motivated by the desire to face new challenges and create more impact by adding her outstanding experience, skills, and strengths to a large consulting company’s portfolio.

All my professional life, what drove me was new challenges and transformations. Now I support Oliver Wyman clients to tackle business challenges and manage large transformations.

In the past, Gwendoline held the Chief Executive Officer position at the leading railway company with a €1.7 billion turnover, launching two new high-speed lines with flawless execution. She also played a major role in the company’s strategic turnaround and performance plan implementation as Chief Financial, Strategy, and Legal Officer.

Gwendoline’s experience in large-scale transformations, building new strategy perspectives, and managing large organizations is complemented by her expertise in governance, with several non-executive directorships, and a forefront leader role of SNCF’s Gender Diversity and Women leadership initiatives.

Since she was 8 years old, Gwendoline has been passionate about horse riding. She always remembers to make time for it in her busy schedule.
