Rajeev Vasudeva Meet Rajeev Vasudeva, Chief Executive of Egon Zehnder
Egon Zehnder was founded in 1964 with two distinctive aims: Place the interests of our clients first, and lead our profession in creating value for our clients.
Since 1964, Egon Zehnder has been at the forefront of defining great leadership in the face of changing economic conditions, emerging opportunities and evolving business goals. With more than 440 consultants in 69 offices and 41 countries around the globe, we work closely with public and private corporations, family-owned enterprises and nonprofit and government agencies to provide board advisory services, CEO and leadership succession planning, executive search and assessment, and leadership development. As a firm, we are:
Egon Zehnder is a true professional services firm, passionately devoted to your success, ethical in our actions, and meticulous in our methods. Doing what is right is at the heart of how we work.
We develop deep and meaningful knowledge of your challenges, offer honest guidance, and provide true support. Nurturing long-term relationships with clients allows us to better understand your needs, be positively proactive, and stay practically focused on what really matters to you.
All of our consultants have significant business careers prior to joining our firm, and all have post-graduate degrees. Many are multi-lingual, having worked or studied across the globe. Our consultants are backed by outstanding research professionals and a proprietary information technology platform. We work in teams to combine cutting-edge, world-class research capability with the rich insights and sound judgment of our worldwide network of experienced consultants to provide you with outstanding quality of information and consistently superior value.
Our consultants generally stay with the firm for many years. We have deep trust in one another. We operate as a single firm and share compensation, enabling us to build authentic long-term personal relationships with clients, candidates and each other, beyond the incentive of personal gain. The power of these trusted networks places the insight and resources of our entire firm at each consultant’s fingertips, so we can bring you much more value than meets the eye.
Unlike the traditional model of search consulting, we charge a fixed fee for our assignments. That means our only incentive is to deliver what’s best for you. Our fixed-fee policy frees us to be diligent, thorough, and completely unbiased, able to assess internal and external candidates on an equal basis and facilitate hiring negotiations with no conflict of interest.
Committed to Diversity & Inclusion
As a truly global, equal partnership comprising individuals from both genders at all levels and including many cultures, languages, and beliefs, we have a deeply personal appreciation for the value of diversity for us and for our clients. At heart we believe that diversity of perspectives and viewpoints leads to better decisions, more creativity, and overall better business. At Egon Zehnder, a diversity mindset permeates everything we do, and we aim to help our clients meet their D&I objectives in every way we can.
