Grimbel du Bois advises financial institutions on designing and executing complex strategic and operating model initiatives, with a focus on regulatory transformation programs. His work involves the analysis of operating models and frameworks against regulatory expectations and peer practices and supporting institutions how to best achieve their strategic and regulatory objectives. 

“I’m thrilled to join Oliver Wyman’s partnership,” he said. “In this role I plan to bring even more energy into helping my clients overcome their compliance and financial economic crime challenges and contribute to keeping the financial sector safe. And because Oliver Wyman is a place with no barriers, I can’t wait to see the breakthrough projects and solutions we develop with our clients.”

Prior to his venture into consulting, Grimbel du Bois worked at Rabobank for five years, and at Big Four firm PwC.
