Drew Wolff has joined CameoWorks as the firm’s chief financial officer and managing director.
Wolff started in his new position July 11, and is returning to Seattle after five years in London with Barclays where he was chief of staff for the company’s United Kingdom retail banking division and held senior finance positions.
“Drew is a financial leader who is skilled at creating the management information and processes necessary to produce a customer centric retail organization, and creating strong, collaborative partnerships inside large companies,” said Deanna Oppenheimer, chief executive officer of CameoWorks.
CameoWorks is a global retail and financial services advisory firm that works with clients’ C-suite executives to provide expert guidance for transformational leadership, international market development and large-scale change management.
Wolff has held financial, strategic and management roles in the financial services industry for more than 12 years.
As chief of staff from 2009 to 2012 at Barclays, Wolff was responsible for coordinating activities of the executive committee and the development and implementation of its growth strategy. He also worked on projects in Europe and Africa and gave advice on consumer product design, pricing and small business banking.
Prior to that, Wolff was the chief financial officer responsible for Barclays’ retail branches, digital channels and consumer deposit/loan portfolios.
Wolff started his business career — after a Navy career that included service aboard nuclear submarines — as director of e-commerce operations at an early stage start-up, GreaterGood.com.
Before Barclays, he worked at Washington Mutual and served as head of strategy for Washington Mutual’s retail bank and was a principal in the bank’s corporate venture fund.
Wolff holds an master’s degree in business with distinction in finance from the University of Michigan and a bachelor of science degree in economics with distinction from the U.S. Naval Academy, where he was ranked first in his class.
Wolff lives on Bainbridge with his wife and their two sons.
