Christiane Wuillamie

Chairman, CWB Systems Services


Christiane Wuillamie

As a young girl growing up in South Vietnam, Christiane Wuillamie learned martial arts and was taught to shoot by her father, an officer in the South Vietnamese navy. Unimpressed by what she saw of the communists during the Vietnam War, she adopted political views "to the right of Ghengis Khan - although I've grown pinker as I've got older".

Now 41, Wuillamie is a petite, uncomplicated and fiercely driven woman, founder (in 1994) chairman and chief executive officer of CWB, one the fastest growing IT consultancies specialising in the banking sector.

Notable among her firm's recent projects has been the design of the "Asterisk" system for Deutsche Bank, enabling the bank effectively to measure and manage exposures and credit risk for all counterparties across the globe. The system, which CWB reckons to be the most comprehensive of its kind, is now being marketed to other banks.

Wuillamie came up with the idea for her business while working in IT departments in several City institutions. She was frustrated by her inability to find consultants who would share risk with their clients on big IT investments by working to a fixed fee and deadline.
