Contact Alex Woodhead


Alex joined Baringa in December 2014 as partner. He has over 20 years’ experience in Retail Financial Services and leads our Operating Model and Operational Transformation team for Retail Banking.

Alex’s key area of expertise is in Operational Consulting and Business Transformation, leading major transformational change programmes focused on the design and delivery of significant business and operating model change, especially around operations transformation, merger integration and business separation.

He has led a number of significant projects including:

  • developing the design for separation and operational subsidiarisation for a major bank in response to regulatory requirements
  • developing the business architecture and defining the implementation programme for the transformation of a major bank’s commercial banking business
  • supporting the end to end business integration (including operating model design and implementation) following the acquisition of a savings business and branch network by a major building society, and
  • designing and building the core central functions for a new retail bank being divested by a major UK banking group.

Alex lives near Manchester and will work across the UK and the rest of Europe. He is a keen cyclist when time allows, and self-confessed ‘hockey dad’ with two very sporty teenage daughters.
