Xavier Boileau is Partner in Oliver Wyman’s Digital and Financial Services EMEA practices. Throughout his 25 year career he has seen many examples of how the right blend of technology and innovation can be invaluable to clients when it comes to tackling new challenges.

As a consultant, Xavier partners with senior executives to advise on how technologies can transform a firm’s growth strategy:

The world is changing so fast. Aside from consulting, I’ve led digital transformation programs as a CIO, and managed start-ups. This has taught me to look at problems from multiple angles, and if necessary, keep reinventing yourself

Xavier’s expertise is broad, including big data, agile and dev-ops at scale, as well as business and IT transformation. He encourages his clients to tackle problems with both an engineering and humanist mindset, looking at new ways technology can improve performance, but always ensuring their workforce shares the same vision.  

I’m fascinated by the pace of innovation. Successful transformation requires the courage to experiment. Always be curious, and always be ready to learn new things
