Ethan Murray is a Consultant in Oliver Wyman Labs focused on technical delivery capabilities. Previously, Ethan spent five years on the business side of consulting, primarily in consumer-focused industries such as retail and technology.

Since starting with Oliver Wyman Labs in 2010, Ethan has focused on building a broad technical toolkit to complement his business background, serving in such roles as front-end developer, SQL developer, ETL developer, DBA, architect, sysadmin, Scrum master, and product owner (for a retailer-focused negotiations solution).

Drawing on his dual background in consulting and technical work, Ethan can usually be found working on the most challenging problems at the intersection of business and technology, helping to design or execute Labs platforms and client projects that require a deep understanding of both worlds.

Outside work, Ethan and his family split their year between Boston, where he was raised, and his wife’s native Costa Rica.  He enjoys watching his children grow up thinking monkeys and squirrels fill the same niche in the world: ubiquitous and sometimes annoying animals you find in your backyard.

Ethan holds a bachelor’s magna cum laude in physics from Harvard University and a Microsoft certification in SQL Server database development.
