Wasko Rothmann is consultant in our Berlin office and active in Egon Zehnder’s Industrial practice (with a focus on the automotive & mobility) as well as in Media, Public & Social Sector practices. In particular, he works at the interface between traditional industries and the technology sector (“Auto-Tech”, “HR-Tech”). Across industries, he specializes on CEO and CHRO positions. Clients also value Wasko as an experienced consultant in the field of Leadership Solutions: in top team and leadership development, in executive assessments or in culture-shaping leadership programs.

One of the biggest challenges that leaders face is recognizing their organization’s strengths and cultivating them to produce outstanding results. I’m excited to help them achieve this.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Wasko was an Associate Partner at McKinsey & Company. He worked on digital and agile transformation, HR and organization, and the future of work. Prior to that, he spent several years researching and teaching at various universities in the field of management and organization. Early on in his career, he worked in the media and cultural business.

Wasko earned degrees as Master of Science in business administration, Master of Arts in philosophy and in literature, and a PhD in Strategic Management & Organization. He is particularly interested in new technologies and economic development in the new federal states of Germany. Outside work, Wasko enjoys going to the theater, hiking and skiing in the mountains, and spending time by the sea with his wife and two children.
