Colin joined Baringa as a Partner in 2012, as part of the Financial Services team as well as co-leading the Process Transformation team. He was previously a partner with IBM Business Consulting, where he led the FS Operations Strategy team, and PWC Consulting. 

Colin has worked across most of the major UK banks including Barclays, LBG, RBS and Nationwide amongst others, as well as many Insurance companies including Aviva and Standard Life. Colin typically works with his clients on the design and implementation of major transformation projects. 

These have included setting the strategy and designing the international target operating model for a global bank; leading an 18 month, CEO sponsored '€˜Enterprise Lean'€™ programme; partnering with a client to shape and deliver its digital transformation programme; and working with a client to develop a single '€˜way of selling'€™ across all its channels, products and customers. Wherever possible Colin works with his clients from design right through to implementation and realisation of business benefits.

Colin lives in Fulham with his wife, and is a keen long-distance runner and taster/ drinker of wine (in particular Bordeaux). He has a Diploma in Advanced Strategy from Said Business School, part of Oxford University.
