Jessica Watson, based in Washington, D.C., is active in Egon Zehnder’s Health Practice, serving clients across the health-care spectrum. She is also active in the firm’s Public and Social Sector and Executive Assessment and Development practices. Jessica has particular expertise in helping clients implement large-scale organizational redesigns, improve leadership team effectiveness, and hone HR and talent strategies.
I’m energized by figuring out what makes people and organizations tick, and then bringing the two together in a combination that’s more powerful than the sum of its parts.
Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Jessica was an Associate Partner with Monitor Group (now Monitor Deloitte), serving in the firm’s leadership & organization practice with a specialization in health care, as well as international not-for-profit and multilateral organizations. She began her career at Ashoka, a nonprofit that invests in leading-edge social entrepreneurs, for which she led a range of programs in Latin America (she is fluent in Spanish).
Jessica earned a BA from Wesleyan University and an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. When not working, she is passionate about exploring distant parts of the globe, whether it’s wandering around a new city or going on a long nature hike.
