Automotive and Transportation Equipment

The automotive industry’s dramatic transformation to self-driving cars and “mobility solutions” has demanded an equally sweeping change in the industry’s leadership profile. Today’s auto executive must facilitate the messy process of innovation and partnerships while meeting production deadlines and cost targets, bringing together a century’s worth of knowledge and commitment with a fast-moving digital culture that has little respect for tradition.

Egon Zehnder’s Automotive Practice is proud to have helped many of the world’s leading automotive companies on this path. We draw on our own extensive automotive industry experience and the resources of our colleagues in the Automotive, Digital, Consumer, and Functional practices to help startups as well as OEMs, Tier 1, and Tier 2 suppliers establish the right organizational structure, set up new organizational competencies, and develop a pipeline of current and future leaders who can bridge the old and the new. The depth and reach of our global team, located in 40 countries, means that we can partner with you to develop leadership solutions anywhere in the world — from a CFO search in Munich to electing a new board member in Detroit or China.
