Lewis Cannon
Principal
 // . //  Our People // Lewis Cannon

Lewis is a Principal in our London office and has a background in economics and management with a BA from Cambridge University, where he focused on issues of monetary policy across the European Union. Since joining Oliver Wyman in 2013, he has been working on digital and data related topics, most recently acting at the intersection of public sector and private sector, bridging the divide to advise private sector clients on compliant transformation, and supporting public sector clients on delivering policy that is fit for the future. He works across multiple sectors, and focuses primarily in the UK market.

I love working with clients and teams to tackle complex and ambiguous challenges, often around a whiteboard, with our sleeves rolled up.

His experience in large-scale digital transformation programmes, as well as greenfield business design and builds, has provided him with the platform to help clients understand the practical implications of challenging data and digital regulations and policy, such as GDPR. 

I pride myself on working to accelerate and de-risk complex decision making to help our clients to 'get there faster', providing them the tools to continue that pace independently going forward.

Outside of commercial interests, Lewis is passionate about mental health and wellbeing, and co-leads the London Office Mental Health and Wellbeing Committee, having been a regular member of the UK Movember team and often leading talks in the office about his own personal challenges. He also tries to keep physically and mentally in shape with regular runs around Hampstead Heath, or in one of its many nearby pubs.
