Leadership is foundational to the flourishing of every organization and society. I truly believe that connecting, nurturing and elevating great leaders is the key to creating a better world.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, most recently Wendi oversaw go-to-market, operations, and people at, a series A AI startup focused on tech talent sourcing.
