08 April 2022


Gabriele Birnberg has joined PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, as a partner in PA’s Financial Services practice. She will help strengthen PA’s People and Change capability across all banking clients, with a focus on addressing people challenges arising from risk and regulatory pressures. 

Gabriele has over 13 years of experience in regulatory change, organisation transformation and banking operations. She previously served as a Director at KPMG where she was the FS People and Change practice lead for risk and regulation. Earlier in her career, Gabriele led pan-European impact assessments covering financial services on behalf of the European Commission. 

PA’s financial services experts combine deep knowledge of banking, insurance, pensions, payments, private equity, and asset management with expertise in strategy, technology, digital and innovation to help clients adapt, transform and succeed. Our experts help global banks and insurance companies to adopt organisational agility at scale and transform their digital experiences. Recent client work includes helping HSBC digitise its organisation from the ground up by developing core products and services to create seamless customer and colleague experiences, helping Ageas to become more data-driven, Aegon to transform and take more agile approaches, and ING to become leaders in platform innovation.  

Gavin Neilson, Head of Financial Services at PA Consulting, said: “We are very excited to have Gabriele joining our financial services practice. Her prior experience will be extremely important to PA’s clients in the near term as they experience more regulatory pressures.”  

Gabriele Birnberg, Financial Services expert at PA Consulting, said: “Our clients increasingly demand a people-centred approach when partnering with them to execute risk and regulatory driven transformations. In my experience, this is only possible through multidisciplinary teams that work well together. PA appealed to me because here, collaboration is not just a concept, it is deliberately built into the infrastructure of the company. I am delighted to have joined PA and am looking forward to working with colleagues from across the organisation to deliver value for our clients.”
