Mark Klimmek

Based in Berlin, Mark Spencer Klimmek is active across Egon Zehnder’s Technology & Communications Practice and in the Family Business Advisory. His deep experience in digital, e-commerce, and private equity has made him a trusted advisor to family-owned, publicly traded, and private equity-backed companies on leadership, succession planning, and digital transformation.

What excites me most is connecting with inspiring individuals, discovering the true person inside an executive, learning from outstanding leaders, and contributing to the development of great organizations.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Mark was a Managing Director at German TV broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 with responsibility for building its e-commerce portfolio. Before that, he served as the Managing Director of Westwing Home & Living, a pan-European online furniture startup, expanding its activities in Russia. Earlier in his career, Mark held the roles of consultant with McKinsey & Company in Munich and Vice President of the technology investment bank GP Bullhound

Mark earned an undergraduate degree in business administration from the European Business School in Oestrich-Winkel, Germany and an MBA from the Katz Graduate School of Business of the University of Pittsburgh. When not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling, live music and theatre performances, and playing an occasional round of golf.

Die Zusammenarbeit mit inspirierenden Persönlichkeiten. Die Chance, Führungskräften wie auch Organisationen ganz neue Dimensionen ihrer Entwicklung zu eröffnen. Das kontinuierliche Lernen mit und für Klienten – Aspekte wie diese sind es, die Mark Spencer Klimmek für seine Arbeit begeistern.

Unsere Klienten schätzen Mark Klimmek als versierten Gesprächspartner in allen Fragen von Leadership, Nachfolgeplanung und digitaler Transformation.
