Mining & Metals

Today’s mining leader must be equal parts engineer, strategist, and diplomat. He or she must oversee value chains that have become much more dynamic and complex, manage stakeholders ranging from governments to traditional owners to environmental groups, and operate before a global media network that critically scrutinizes a company’s social license to operate. To add to the challenge, the need to innovate, automate, and digitize is quickly becoming paramount.

Egon Zehnder’s Mining & Metals Practice works with all players in the industry — from leading public companies to global investors, industry associations, and privately backed miners — to help them rethink their talent requirements and organizational makeup to fit this evolving environment. Because we are as global as the industry we serve, we are able to reach across borders and industries to find and assess executives — both internally and externally — who have the elusive mix of experience, competencies, and potential to excel and lead in this environment. The professional background and tenure of our cross-functional consulting team means that we know what it takes to be successful in this industry — and provides us with long-term relationships and invaluable access to candidates and industry intelligence.
