Manuel de Miranda founded Egon Zehnder’s Washington DC office, where he continues to serve as a trusted advisor to a range of clients in the U.S. and Europe on CEO succession, leadership assessment, coaching and development.
Much of my work is listening intensely. Sometimes it’s what’s not said that matters most. In today’s sensory-overloaded world, our clients have to learn to pause in order to gain perspective. I see my role as helping them get there.
Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Manuel was the Head of Strategic Marketing for Lafarge North America. Previously, he held various roles with Shell International working in Africa, Southeast Asia, Brasil, Australia, and Europe. Manuel began his career at Bain & Company and served as a Tank Commander in the Reserves. He currently divides his time between our offices in Washington DC and Lisbon where he serves as a Counsellor of State to Portugal.
Manuel earned a PhD in politics from Cambridge University and has been certified by the Executive Coaching Program of Georgetown University. He was a speaker at the 2017 WebSummit and gets energized by regularly practicing sports, developing close personal friendships and spending time with his family.
