Machinery & Industrial Technology

For machinery and industrial technology companies, the rise of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things provides both rich opportunity and continued relevance in the digital era. Many organizations, however, are still grappling with what being digital truly means. Adapting to an interconnected world, after all, calls for more than new technology. It also requires new business models and structures, new types of talent, and new organizational cultures focused on continuous improvement.

Egon Zehnder’s Machinery and Industrial Technology Practice works closely with boards, CEOs, and senior leaders to find and grow the best talent solutions. The deep industry experience of our more than 560 consultants, along with our globally integrated firm structure, allows us to work seamlessly with our colleagues in digital, technology, cybersecurity, and other sectors. Our expertise allows us to find the external talent that’s needed in this fast-moving environment or to help you develop it internally. It’s a true partnership with one goal: helping you find and develop the very best leaders.
