Egon Zehnder has provided leadership and counsel for more than 30 years in Greater China, starting in Asia's world city, Hong Kong, in 1986. Evolving alongside the extraordinary growth of the region, we extended our presence to Shanghai in 1995, and a decade later, we opened our Beijing office.
We have had the privilege of working with Chinese entrepreneurs and companies with global ambitions, advising Hong Kong families on leadership succession issues and supporting the continual expansion of international firms into the Greater China region. Our 26 consultants and 50-person staff reflect the cosmopolitan diversity found in the next generation of leaders in the area. While we serve a wide array of sectors and businesses, we specialize in the innovation-focused industries of technology, industrial and consumer goods and services, and financial services, as well as help companies navigate digital transformations. We also work with local talent to develop them for executive and board-level positions.
We look forward to partnering with you.
