Based in Boston and St. Louis, Mark Stuart-Smith is active in Egon Zehnder’s Consumer and Leadership Advisory practices. He is appreciated by clients in the consumer packaged goods and retail industries for his insightful support for strengthening their management teams for better results while meeting their executive search, assessment, and development and succession planning needs.
I’m curious about how organizations and leadership roles are evolving and strive to help leaders and teams understand themselves better in order to bring out the best in their organizations.
Before becoming an Egon Zehnder consultant, Mark worked in our CEO Advisory Group. He focused on helping clients with CEO and board succession issues and coaching C-suite executives as they transitioned to new and expanded roles. While serving personal care, beauty, household care, food & beverages, and consumer durables companies, he built up considerable expertise across general management, marketing, digital, innovation, and strategy functions.
Mark earned a BA in English literature and history from Vassar College and completed an MBA in marketing, strategy, and management from NYU’s Stern School of Business. Outside work, Mark and his husband enjoy going to the opera and theater, fine dining, and taking their four-year-old on long walks in the park.
