Birgit Storz, based in Frankfurt, leads Egon Zehnder’s FinTech segment in Germany and is active in the firm’s Financial Services Practice. She applies her experience as a company founder, early-stage venture capitalist, and bank executive to help clients manage transformation processes and growth phases. Birgit is particularly skilled at attracting innovation- and entrepreneurial-minded leaders and building bridges between start-ups and established financial services companies.

I’m energized by working closely with leaders who are passionate about shaping the future of the financial services industry. Helping them bring together the right ingredients for innovating and growing their business is highly motivating.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Birgit spent more than 12 years in various senior positions at major banks, including heading Commerzbank’s Corporate Banking Strategy and Resource Management divisions. She also set up a company builder and early-stage venture capital firm, managed the postmerger integration of Commerzbank and Dresdner Bank in Central and Eastern Europe, and headed the new strategy and business development divisions while sitting on several supervisory boards. Earlier, Birgit held management roles in retail banking, private banking, and assurbanking at Dresdner Bank in Europe and Asia. She began her career in the Inhouse Consulting Group of Deutsche Bank.

Birgit earned degrees in business administration from the University of Applied Sciences in Regensburg, Germany, and the La Rochelle Business School, in France. She is very devoted to her family, enjoys outdoor sports, and supports social entrepreneurship.
