Earlier this year Deepti Das worked on a project to launch a digital bank in South East
Europe and the work resulted in
providing additional banking services for retail and commercial customers and enabled efficiencies in
banking processes. “I am extremely
proud of this accomplishment given
the positive impact our work delivered in driving economic growth
of the country whilst introducing a
new way of banking,” Das says.
Das is an Associate in the Digital,
Technology, Operations and Analytics
(DTA) practice and is based in Oliver
Wyman’s London Office. Previously at
PA Consulting, Das brings years of experience in leading strategy, M&A and
operational improvement engagements
for global financial institutions.
In addition to the digital bank, she
worked on an extremely challenging project of realizing a board mandate of over
$1 billion in savings for a global insurer.
Due to the scale of the mandate, the project spanned the entire global footprint of
the client; including nearly 50 countries.
“We had to identify several strate-
gic opportunities and work with differ-
ent regional teams to deliver the global
mandate,” Das says. “Aligning differ-
ent regional teams with various goals
made me aware of the challenges that
businesses face in delivering large-scale
transformations which are critical to suc-
ceed in today’s business environment. I
am most proud of this accomplishment
as it gave me an opportunity to extend
my knowledge and skills to deliver an
impact that would position the client as
an industry leader thereby strengthening
our position as a trusted advisor.”
She has advised senior leaders across
a range of strategic and operational top-
ics to drive performance and growth.
Her signature style combines a relentless
commitment to delivering client impact
with a ‘soft’ understanding of the impor-
tance of building a trusted network and
co-creating solutions with client teams.
She holds Bachelor’s in Engineering
and an MBA from INSEAD.
“Our success is underpinned by the
success of our clients. Therefore, deliv-
ering value to our clients is the biggest
motivation on any project,” Das says.
“The consulting profession provides the
opportunity to work with senior leaders
of different industries on highly impor-
tant issues. The intellectual stimulation,
complex problem solving and opportu-
nity to work with industry leaders are the
aspects I enjoy most about my work.”
As far as being a Global Leader, Das
is “humbled to be recognized as a global
leader along with such an inspiring group
of people. It reinforces my motivation
to continue to excel and deliver great
value, which my firm is committed to.
Our clients acknowledge the great work
that we do for them and see the award as
recognition for what they have come to
expect from us; excellence in all we do.”
Q&A: What’s been
the biggest factor to
Das: “I have been fortunate to have worked with some great
colleagues and clients. The mentorship I received early on in
my career, along with the support from my team members are
the biggest factors that have prepared me to deal with complex
and ambiguous issues in a structured way while leveraging
capabilities of my team.”
