Technology & Communications

The technology and communications industries are the main drivers of the digital revolution unfolding across the global economy. Here, the pace of change is the most unrelenting: what is leading edge today can quickly become outdated tomorrow, pushed aside by start-ups working in remote corners of the ecosystem. This environment places a premium on executives who have the flexibility, experience, and track record to drive meaningful transformation. These leaders exist — but many of them sit deep inside of organizations and are not very visible.

At Egon Zehnder, our Technology and Communications Practice has extensive experience helping organizations navigate these leadership challenges in a world that prizes agility over size and diversity over homogeneity. Our industry experience and professional networks reach across the sector and across geographies, from global market leaders to disruptive early-stage ventures. We help boards and senior management clarify the kinds of leaders they need, based on their business strategy, their stage of corporate development, and the competitive environment. We work with CHROs to better align their talent-management function with the organization’s strategic direction. And we are able to leverage our long-term relationships and industry intelligence to identify and recruit leaders who thrive in uncertainty and who demonstrate the ability to create, impact, and transform their organizations.
