Egon Zehnder Solidifies Presence in Washington, D.C. with Office Opening

WASHINGTON, October 27 – Egon Zehnder, a global leader in executive search and leadership advisory services, announced the official opening of its new office in Washington, D.C., the firm’s 11th office in the United States and 69th worldwide.

The firm will commemorate the opening with a celebration at The Phillips Collection, with remarks from Damien O’Brien, Chairman of Egon Zehnder; David Rubenstein, Co-founder and Co-CEO of The Carlyle Group and Manuel de Miranda, leader of the Egon Zehnder Washington D.C. office.

“Egon Zehnder has been working with organizations in Washington for many years,” observes Mr. de Miranda. “But today, these Fortune 500 firms, government agencies and global NGOs are deeply rethinking how they add value in a world driven by innovation and new ways of doing business. Opening a Washington, D.C. office is part of our commitment to them, so that we can continue to provide the counsel and advice they expect from us in this dynamic time.”

“The concerns of CEOs in the Washington, D.C. area mirror the concerns of CEOs in other international capitals,” says Mr. O’Brien, the firm’s Chairman. “Business leaders are tasked with leading transformative change, while meeting evolving performance goals and investor expectations. Our job is to help them move decisively through uncertainty, with a clear vision of the types of leaders and organizations they need for this complex environment. Washington, D.C. is home to a unique concentration of influential organizations that are leading the way in grappling with these issues, and we are excited to be making a home here among them.”
