Doug Kush is a Partner in the Chicago office of Egon Zehnder. While at Egon Zehnder, he has held multiple leadership roles including Global Head of Medical Technology, Head of the North American Healthcare Practice and Managing Partner of the Chicago Office. He advises clients across the healthcare space with a particular focus on senior leadership roles. In addition to executive search, Doug supports corporate boards through succession planning, recruitment of new directors, and Board Acceleration to drive greater cohesion and alignment. Doug is certified in the Hogan Developmental Survey, and 16PF psychometric analysis.

My years in this profession have taught me that people can change and grow in unexpected ways. Starting each conversation without preconceptions makes you a better coach and executive.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Doug was a Senior Principal at the Boston Consulting Group, where he worked primarily developing growth strategies for medical technology, healthcare Services, and consumer goods companies. He is the author of a year-long study of best practices in medical technology R&D and is a functional expert in pricing. Before joining BCG, Doug spent 10 years as a Commissioned Submarine Officer with the United States Navy. He served two tours of duty on submarines, including operation Desert Storm, and was an instructor of naval science and history at the Carnegie Mellon Naval ROTC unit.

Doug holds a bachelor’s degree from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he majored in physics and economics, graduating with distinction in each. He holds an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University where he also graduated with distinction. When not working, Doug enjoys boating, golfing, and running with his extended family. He and his wife are active in children’s charities, and he is on the board of Cradles to Crayons, a nonprofit serving low-income and homeless children.
