Celent Appoints New CEO

Celent, a division of Oliver Wyman Inc., appointed Craig Weber to replace Mike Harding as CEO.  

Harding, a senior partner at Oliver Wyman, was appointed CEO in 2009, shortly after the acquisition of Celent by Oliver Wyman. Harding will resume his Oliver Wyman responsibilities while retaining his role as chairman at Celent.

Since 2007, Weber has been a senior vice president with global responsibility for Celent’s Insurance division. In recent years, he led the team’s expansion in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. He joined the firm in 2002.

“Craig has been instrumental in building Celent’s market-leading insurance practice and will bring a wealth of financial services experience to his new role,” said Harding.
