John Lowry

Connect With Me

John Lowry is a member of Egon Zehnder’s Industrial Practice, with more than 15 years of experience in the industrial sector. Based in Chicago, he led the Firm’s U.S. Supply Chain and Operations Practice until taking a leave of absence to serve as the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Veterans’ Employment. The U.S. Senate confirmed his appointment with unanimous consent. Under John’s leadership veteran employment improved significantly, relative to the non-veteran cohort. Since returning to the Firm, John continues to draw upon deep expertise in recruitment, board succession, and leadership assessment and development.

The people dynamic of the work is energizing. Gaining and applying insights while connecting with others makes this job fun. Every conversation brings an opportunity to sharpen my professional judgment.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, John was Chief Operating Officer of Allied Recreation Group. He also spent more than a dozen years at Harley-Davidson, where he led manufacturing operations in Kansas City and Milwaukee. Before his business career, John was an Infantry Officer in the United States Marine Corps. He finished his military career in the reserves and retired with the rank of Colonel.

John earned an AB from Princeton University, master’s degrees from Stanford University and the U.S. Army War College, and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He was an International Affairs Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and a former Vice Chairman of the Marine Corps Association and Foundation which sponsors programs to develop, educate, and recognize leaders. When not working he enjoys bicycling, fly fishing, and traveling with his wife.
