Eric Anderson, based in Atlanta and New York, serves as the Global Co-Head of the Technology and Communications Practice. Eric established Egon Zehnder’s global FinTech Practice as well as the firm’s Technology Enabled Services Practice, an area in which he has deep expertise for advising clients on leadership talent and succession. He devotes much of his time to helping companies address innovation and digital disruption and works extensively across private equity to meet leadership and advisory needs. He is active in the Board Consulting, CEO and Technology Officer practices.

My favorite saying is from Marcus Aurelius: ’When you arise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love.'

Previously, Eric was President of the Compliance and Licensing Solutions Division of the BISYS Group, a leading provider of services to more than 22,000 financial institutions. That was preceded by the role of Vice President of EMEA at S1 Corporation, an enterprise financial-services-software company. The early stages of Eric’s career centered on software, associated services, and health care/clinical diagnostics.

Eric earned a BS in marketing from the Smeal College of Business at Pennsylvania State University and an MBA in international business from the University of Miami. He sits on the board of Eagle Ranch, a nonprofit organization that works with troubled boys and girls. Eric is also a founding member of the FinTech Society of the Georgia Technology Association. He is married with three children and loves the outdoors, especially cycling in the North Georgia mountains.
