Chairman, CWB Systems Services
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.
