Ronan O'Kelly

Partner, Corporate & Institutional Banking

From advising clients on strategy and growth to delivering new digital businesses, Ronan’s work is centered on transformation. Leading the corporate and transaction banking business, he works with clients to grow their business and reshape their business models for the future. 

We’re helping clients to build the corporate banks of the future. We are often looking at a business model that hasn’t changed in decades and working with teams to ask, how can they serve their customers better?

Collaborating with leading global and regional banks, Ronan is focused on strategy and transformational change. One of the most important outcomes of his work with clients is an increased focus on end customers. This applies particularly to digital transformation, where establishing a bold vision and making change happen helps to deliver value.

Ronan credits Oliver Wyman’s team dynamic and quality of work with spurring his decision to join the firm and continue his career here. Operating in a non-hierarchical environment, where ideas quickly translate into action, he has continued delivering for clients at each stage. 

It’s a hugely privileged position to be in at every level, seeing the most pressing problems that are facing complex institutions. You can be part of solving problems at pace and ask, why is that the case and how can it be better?

Outside of work, Ronan is a proud father of two and a keen sailor – though he currently spends more time exploring the Irish countryside with his children than on the water.
