Egon Zehnder in the Middle East


+971 4 376 5555


Egon Zehnder has been serving major private and publicly listed companies, government-owned institutions, leading diversified family businesses, international businesses, and supra-regional organizations operating in the Middle East, North Africa, and Pakistan region for more than 40 years. We started serving these clients in 1975 from our European base and then opened our first office in the region in Jeddah in 1998 and later our office in Dubai in 2005. From there, we have been working with clients across industries and sectors.

Our focus is on steadily advising our clients in building and strengthening strong organizations with lasting leadership. Initially, their needs emerged purely as executive searches but have evolved to include the full range of our leadership advisory services, including executive assessments, executive development, succession planning, leadership team effectiveness and board effectiveness. Not only have we built a local and regional track record that is leveraged by local institutions and multinationals to identify and attract top local talent, but we also leverage Egon Zehnder's international footprint to attract leading executive and board talent. 

We are proud of our long-standing commitment to the region, extensive client network, and personalized solutions that continuously yield significant repeat businesses. We look forward to partnering with you.
