Macgregor to Oversee Next Phase in Celent’s Digital Services Platform
NEW YORK – May 29, 2018 – Celent, a division of Oliver Wyman, announced today that Jamie Macgregor has been appointed CEO. Macgregor will focus on growing and building the firm’s digital research capabilities.
“Technology is fundamentally changing our clients’ businesses,” said Ted Moynihan, Managing Partner of Financial Services within Oliver Wyman. “They have an urgent need to better understand how, and to get help with the increasingly complex technology decisions they need to make as a result. Under Jamie’s leadership, Celent is well-placed to help our clients navigate this change and do so from within a more digital model.”
Macgregor joined Celent in 2011 and has led Celent’s insurance team as Senior Vice President since 2013. He recently oversaw the launch of Celent Digital Services, a series of online tools targeted at mapping and reporting on the financial services technology landscape. With a strong team and international client base in place, Jamie will lead the next phase of Celent’s growth with the introduction of new digital services and the continued development of market leading technology research.

“I’d very much like to thank Craig Weber for his years of committed service to, and leadership of the Celent business," added Moynihan. “Craig is a highly valued colleague and friend to everyone in the firm, and someone I have always found to be intensely trustworthy and committed.”
