Contact Gregory P. Wilson
Greg Wilson has provided distinctive consulting services throughout his more than 30-year professional career in financial services policy and regulation. For the past three years, his primary client focus has been on the financial crisis and regulatory reform efforts, primarily in the United States, but also internationally following G20 developments.
In the private sector, he has helped foreign and domestic banks manage their U.S. financial regulatory and governance risk, assisted nonbanks entering the U.S. market through de novo banks, advised CEOs on how to manage a financial crisis, and advised leaders of financial services trade associations on critical strategy, public policy, regulatory, and organizational issues. He was co-director of The Financial Services Roundtable’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Financial Competitiveness in 2007, and continues to serve as an external adviser to the Roundtable.
During more than 20 years at McKinsey, Wilson also has served numerous public sector clients around the world, including central bankers, ministers of finance, and financial regulators on issues of financial crisis management, regulatory reform, financial sector restructuring, and financial center competitiveness. In the past decade, Wilson has worked in more than 25 countries in the developed world and emerging markets.
Wilson currently is the author of the new book, Managing to the New Regulatory Reality – Doing Business After the Dodd-Frank Act – (John Wiley & Sons, 2011). He also is the co-author of Dangerous Markets: Managing in Financial Crises (John Wiley & Sons, 2001), and has been a frequent contributor to the McKinsey Quarterly and other publications.
Prior to joining McKinsey in 1989, Wilson served Secretaries of the Treasury James A. Baker III and Nicholas F. Brady as their Deputy Assistant Secretary for Financial Institutions Policy from 1986 to 1989. Upon leaving the Treasury Department, he received the Secretary’s Distinguished Service Award from Secretary Brady.
From 1974 to 1976, Wilson attended the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, where he studied international business and law. He graduated magna cum laude from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1974 with a B.A. in history as well as politics and government.
