Philippe Hertig, based in Zurich, advises chairmen and board directors, as well as CEOs and C-suite executives on corporate governance, board and executive-team effectiveness, succession planning, and talent management. Philippe is active in Egon Zehnder’s global Industrial Practice, where he was a cofounder, and has deep experience guiding chair, board director, CEO, and C-level searches for major international corporations and midsize companies. He is also a member of the firm’s Board Consulting and CEO practices.

I have the most interesting profession: advising top leaders on critical people decisions, which leads to stronger and more competitive companies.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Philippe served on the executive committee of Pilatus Aircraft, the world’s leader in single-engine turboprop aircrafts. Philippe began his career at Pilatus, where he was Marketing Assistant and Regional Sales Manager before being promoted to Division Head, assuming the global profit-and-loss responsibility for the company’s biggest division.

Philippe has a master’s in business administration from the University of Freiburg and a PhD in business administration from the University of Bern. He regularly participates in panel discussions and is frequently interviewed in the Swiss media. He has also written several articles on leadership. Philippe serves on the board of Schweizerische Management Gesellschaft, Switzerland’s largest management association, and on the board of the Swedish Swiss Chamber of Commerce, where he leads the nomination committee. He is an officer in the Swiss Air Force and still flies the F-5F jet fighter. He is also a member of the famous Swiss Air Force PC-7 Team. In his spare time, he enjoys boating on Lake Zurich.
