Professional Services

New business models, technological disruption, and increased global competition have led to urgent demand for insights from consulting, audit, and other professional services firms. But the types of insights needed have changed as well. The days of consultants cloistered among themselves in open-ended, large-scale projects are over; clients want true partners who work alongside them as catalysts and co-creators. This environment calls for a different type of firm leadership.

Egon Zehnder’s Professional Services Practice helps your firm evaluate leadership capabilities and identify partners with the personal qualities needed to create a culture centered on collaboration. We help you grow leaders who can spur innovation both at home and in client organizations. And we work seamlessly with our colleagues in 63 global offices across multiple industry and functional practices to recruit partners with the standing and networks to build vibrant new practices.

At Egon Zehnder, we understand the challenges professional services firms face—not only because many of us have spent time as consultants, but because Egon Zehnder is itself a professional services firm. We look forward to partnering with you.
