Matthew Handley
Managing Designer
 // . //  Our People //  Matthew Handley

Matt is a Managing Designer in our Organizational Effectiveness practice. He joined the firm in 2019, and has five years’ experience in working collaboratively and creatively with clients across all industries to find the solutions to their toughest challenges - from vision and strategy, to operating model transformation. 

As part of Matt’s work, he takes a people-centric approach to designing and delivering collaborative working experiences that bring large groups together to align around their problems and design quality solutions in an accelerated way, that creates ownership across the business. 

Our work combines business expertise with insight from psychology, the arts, and behavioral science – I love drawing broadly upon these influences to help clients find better and bolder solutions to their most complex problems.

Since COVID-19, Matt has played a leading role in developing Oliver Wyman’s approach to remote collaboration to support our clients to achieve impact in a virtual setting. His recent engagements include working with the largest division of a global financial services provider to redesign their operating model, and supporting the top 30 of a defence client to transform the way in which they lead.

Matt enjoys drawing broadly upon his passions to find creative inspiration - from improvised comedy to pop music. He is a keen runner and recently ran his first marathon. He has a BA in History from Oxford University, where he was a two-time finalist of the European Universities Debating Championships. 

I love being in a team where not only am I encouraged to be creative, playful, and try new things – but where everything we do is imbued with a bold spirit of fearlessness.
