Industrial

It is a disruptive, yet exciting, moment in the industrial sector. The massive amount of transformation underway — encompassing everything from technology innovation to megamergers to shareholder activism to the more active role of private equity — means that the "leadership of the future" will be very different from what many companies have today. That’s where we come in. Egon Zehnder’s Industrial Practice, present in 68 offices around the world, has deep expertise not only in assessing and finding global talent, but also creating a dialogue about the actual business issues in play and how the rapidly changing industrial environment requires creating a talent pipeline for the future. 

Today, the Industrial Practice is the largest in the firm. We have worked with more than 55 percent of the Fortune Global 250 industrial companies in the past few years. We are committed to making a lasting impact on the performance of our industrial clients through their leadership pipelines. We understand that leadership success is as much about developing the talent that you already have as it is about finding new talent. We use our global scale and One Firm partnership model to source from all over the world. But we also use that same reach to help you assess, benchmark, and develop your current executives to make sure that they are ready to meet the disruptive challenges that exist both now and in the future.
