Platinion Managing Director
Matthew Leybold is Boston Consulting Group’s Platinion North America Public Sector/Defense lead, and BCG Platinion Cloud Architecture lead. His current focus is helping public sector agencies and financial institutions define their IT strategy and enable core technology and digital transformation initiatives. These transformation journeys are set within the context of achieving key business imperatives of cost takeout, risk reduction, and business innovation.
Matthew has worked on engagements covering technology and digital strategy, architecture, and transformation (full stack technology infrastructure, modern architecture, and transformation) primarily in Department of Defense (DoD) and financial institutions environments; as well as cloud transformation (strategy, cloud native architecture and transformation, public cloud infrastructure, and engineering for private-public hybrid ecosystems), enterprise applications (ERP, platform, and SaaS strategy/design/build/migration, and cybersecurity and risk management.)
Before he came to the firm, Matthew worked in professional services for technology strategy, architecture, and transformation, primarily with global financial institutions and the US public sector.
He was also a leader in the Army National Guard 91st Cyber Brigade, trained and equipped to conduct cyber analysis, vulnerability assessments, and defensive/ offensive cyberspace operations (DCO/OCO) on DoD networks and critical public infrastructure.
Clear signposts point to a different type of journey for financial institutions.
