Eric Anderson, based in Atlanta, serves as the Global Co-Head of the Technology Practice and is a trusted advisor to clients on board governance, CEO succession strategies, talent assessment and development and management of large-scale organizational change. Eric established Egon Zehnder’s global FinTech Practice as well as the firm’s Technology Enabled Services Practice, an area which he brings over 20 years of experience advising clients on leadership talent and succession.

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 Head of EMEA at S1 Corporation, an enterprise Fintech software company. The early stages of Eric’s career centered on software and health care/clinical diagnostics. He was also a combat helicopter pilot in the US Army.

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 non-profit organization that works with troubled boys and girls and is a member of the Board of Reliance Trust, serving on the Audit Committee. 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.
