Tim Züwerink, based in Berlin, is active in Egon Zehnder’s global Health Practice. He is a trusted advisor to clients active in the health and life sciences sectors across Europe, providing capable executive search services, management appraisals, and general organizational advice.

Acquiring and developing excellent talent are core to any business—and a very personal challenge to their leaders. I feel privileged to help them find the great people they need in order to thrive.

Prior to Egon Zehnder, Tim served as the CEO and co-founder of Gotthardt Healthgroup, an IT company, in Germany. Before that he held the role of Senior Vice President at CompuGroup Medical, a TecDax-listed IT company, with responsibility for global revenues with pharmaceutical companies and insurances. Tim began his career with McKinsey & Company, supporting pharma and medical technology companies in the EU, the U.S. and Russia as an Engagement Manager.

Tim earned a Master of Arts in Slavic Studies, Political Science and Science of the Media and then a PhD in Slavic Studies from the University of Bonn with semesters abroad at St. Petersburg State University. In addition to his native German, he is proficient in English, Russian and Polish. Tim lives with his wife and two children in Heidelberg, Germany. A music enthusiast, he enjoys playing the drums, guitar and piano.

Als bewährter Berater begleitet Tim Züwerink Klienten aus der Gesundheitsbranche bei der Gewinnung hervorragender Führungskräfte, der Bewertung ihrer Managementteams sowie bei Fragen der Organisationsgestaltung. Dabei bringt er als Mitglied von Egon Zehnders Health Praxisgruppe die Expertise aus einer Vielzahl von Beratungsaufgaben und Klientenbeziehungen ein. Als ehemaliger CEO und Gründer weiß er um die komplexen Herausforderungen, denen sich Führungskräfte in einer sich schnell wandelnden Welt gegenübersehen.

Vor seiner Zeit bei Egon Zehnder initiierte und führte Tim Züwerink die Gotthardt Healthgroup, eine Software-Firma aus Heidelberg. Zuvor verantwortete er als Senior Vice President des im TecDAX gelisteten IT-Unternehmens CompuGroup Medical dessen weltweites Geschäft mit Pharma- und Versicherungsunternehmen. Seine Karriere begann er als Engagement Manager bei McKinsey & Company und betreute vor allem Pharma- und Medizintechnologieunternehmen aus der Europäischen Union, den USA und Russland.

Tim Züwerink studierte Slavistik, Politische Wissenschaft und Medienwissenschaften an der Universität Bonn und verbrachte zwei Auslandssemester an der Staatlichen Universität St. Petersburg. Heute lebt Tim mit Frau und zwei Kindern in Heidelberg. Seine Freizeit verbringt der Musikliebhaber unter anderem mit Schlagzeug-, Gitarre- und Klavierspielen.
