Consumer

We in Egon Zehnder’s Consumer Practice have the incredible privilege of working with the world’s best and most iconic companies and brands. At a time of great disruption and ever-increasing demands from shareholders, consumer companies need transformational leadership. Our expertise lies in accessing and identifying top external talent as well as in supporting and developing leaders inside an organization. This is what we do.

Because our consultants come directly from the consumer industry, we understand exactly what our clients are facing; we’ve been there. With our global reach of 68 offices worldwide, we offer access to an unmatched variety of perspectives, which together enable us to guide you with the truth. We personalize our approach, seeking the right leadership for both today and the future — whether in response to shareholder activism, online competition, business transformation, or changing consumer tastes. We offer solutions, not transactions. We go deep.
