Dede Orraca-Cecil, based in Boston, is a member of Egon Zehnder’s Consumer Practice where serves clients in the Media, Entertainment, and lifestyle industries. Her experience working in highly regulated industries on matters of collaborative and corporate governance have made her a trusted advisor to CEOs, boards, and senior executives across industries and sectors (public, private and social). She partners with clients on a wide range of leadership, performance and talent solutions including talent acquisition and assessment, transformative leadership, and organizational agility.

I’m energized by understanding who you are, what motivates you, where you want to go, and how far you are on that journey. I want to know and understand people and develop strong relationships along the way.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Dede was a Principal at Tapestry Networks, a strategy consulting firm specialized in creating multi-stakeholder public-private partnerships to address issues in health care, finance, and corporate governance. Previously, she was a Litigation Associate in the New York and San Francisco law offices of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. Dede also spent a number of years working in global health, development, and foreign policy with the World Health Organization, the Clinton Foundation, Yale’s Center for Interdisciplinary Research on AIDS and others.

Dede earned a JD from Columbia University School of Law, a master’s degree in global health policy and development from Yale University, and a BA in art history from Williams College. She is passionate about her husband and four young children, and about promoting women’s leadership. She is currently building an organization, called “She Rules,” to introduce elementary school girls to politics and civics.
