Human resources has an increasingly strategic impact on business leadership. I understand the broad capabilities required to help human resources support companies as they transform and grow.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Tim worked in the fields of executive development and management consulting.

Tim helped to redesign and launch new succession planning roadmaps and talent acceleration plans driving improved talent visibility. Tim was also responsible for the complete redesign of the executive education curriculum for the top 250 executives globally leading to new immersive learning courses that focused on leadership and collaboration. As the leader of Siemens Management Consulting in New York, Tim led strategy and operational improvement projects for the Siemens business executives in North America.
