Joining OW was a game changer for me. It afforded me opportunities and challenges that would not have been possible in the same timeframe elsewhere.

Justin is recognized in the industry as an expert in the FIS Insurance Risk Suite (Prophet). He supports our clients in the implementation of their most challenging modeling needs, model review and optimization, and strategic guidance around model governance and organizational design. Justin helps our clients design and implement cutting-edge modeling solutions through employing an industry-best, tried-and-tested modeling framework to develop innovative modeling implementations, in line with leading Prophet modeling best practices and coding standards.

Justin notes that the entrepreneurial environment at Oliver Wyman, world-class resources, and support and mentorship of the best people in the consulting industry have empowered him to achieve many of his personal and professional goals far more quickly than it would have been possible elsewhere. Ultimately, the result has been to build the ability to provide our clients a class and range of Prophet consulting capabilities unmatched in the industry.

At OW, if you have a passion for something and see an opportunity in the market, the mindset is essentially, “Go do it”, with all the support and resources necessary to ensure the best shot at success.

Justin’s advice for colleagues beginning their career in consulting is to be flexible and focus on doing the absolute best while aiming to capitalize on the opportunities that present themselves along the way. The rest will work itself out, as it has for him: a combination of events after his graduation amidst the recession of 2009 has allowed him to develop expertise in something he truly enjoys, although at the time it seemed that nothing was going according to plan!
