At Egon Zehnder, we have developed true expertise in the emerging field of blockchain technology. Over 11 years old, functional blockchain technology has evolved from its humble, underground origins and gained the attention of Fortune 500 industry giants and even governments. Eager to harness the massive value propositions of the world’s newest general-purpose technology, business and technology professionals are working diligently to integrate the distributed ledger’s underlying enterprise capabilities. While the applications are endless, some of today’s most promising implementations address operational issues such as chain of custody, customer identity, tokenization, and transaction clearing through the use of cryptocurrency, crypto tokens, and distributed ledger technology. Such use cases — both financial and nonfinancial — extend well beyond the market’s obsession over valuations of digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. These efforts require fresh perspectives and access to a scarce supply of talent, both of which often reside beyond the finance realm.
Our 68 offices across 40 countries provide the global reach necessary to address the rapidly evolving blockchain and crypto space. More than 450 consultants, many of whom are hired directly from industry, are well equipped to identify talent and offer thought leadership across sectors. And our unique “One Firm” operating model lets clients enjoy our full array of solutions — which extends through executive assessment and development — without regard to geographic or functional hurdles.
Because blockchain itself derives much of its value from a “no boundaries” credo, Egon Zehnder is particularly suited to the space due to our similar philosophy in knowledge management, talent leverage, and diverse approaches. Our consultants are well-versed in blockchain’s underlying technology, with the relevant industry experience to identify and develop the best emerging talent in this highly competitive sector. We welcome the chance to partner with you to navigate the transformative and mission-critical field that is blockchain.
