The telecommunications industry is weathering transformational changes, driven by increased customer expectations, new digital entrants, high capital costs, commodification, and regulatory complexity. There are new technology opportunities and a growing re-fragmentation, and communications & connectivity providers are playing a crucial role in keeping the world connected. Investor support is high for building the digital infrastructure to support this connectivity, such as fiber, towers, 5G and data centers, but investor confidence also relies on companies securing the right leadership for this era of rapid change and opportunity.
At Egon Zehnder, our Communications & Connectivity Practice has partnered with many of the world's top 100 telecom companies to help them build the complex leadership teams they need to drive innovation and manage change at scale.
We recognize that the focus must shift from individuals to outstanding teams, composed of exceptional managers with complementary talents, which is why our leadership solutions reach across the organization. We assess organizational structure, culture, and leadership capabilities and chart paths to new business models and more competitive positions.
Hundreds of telcos, service providers, and device companies have worked with Egon Zehnder to manage their CEO succession over the past decade. We also work closely with digital infrastructure investors to build new teams from scratch and assess leadership suites—both pre- and post-deal. Newly molded leadership teams encompass tech know-how, entrepreneurial verve, training in dealing with public bodies, and the capacity to navigate a complex regulatory environment.
Our global reach and integrated approach empower us to tap into colleagues across the Firm to find and develop executives from consumer, digital, finance, manufacturing, software, and other industries who can bring fresh perspectives and unique skill sets. We also know how to position our teleco industry partners to stand out in a fiercely competitive talent market.
We look forward to helping you transform your organization.
