Based in Chicago, Marwa Joy Zohdy is an active member of Egon Zehnder’s global Health Practice. She draws on first-hand executive leadership experience and deep strategic expertise to advise clients across the healthcare continuum from scientific and technological discovery to delivery of patient care. Marwa is passionate about helping the healthcare industry benefit from diversity in terms of ideas, experiences, expertise, and backgrounds.

Leadership is the key to positive change, and it’s immensely rewarding to advise leaders in an industry that so directly impacts people’s health and lives.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Marwa served as the Vice President of Global Consulting Services at Joint Commission Resources and Joint Commission International, where she led a global team of 150 expert consultants involved in improving the quality and safety of healthcare delivery around the world. Earlier, she worked at McKinsey & Company helping to address strategic challenges in healthcare and advising top leaders of hospitals, academic medical centers, and national and regional ministries of health across the U.S., U.K., Middle East, and North Africa. Marwa also served as a Knowledge Expert with McKinsey’s Health Systems Institute and was actively involved in the recruitment, training, and professional development of consultants worldwide.

Marwa earned a BS in electrical engineering and an MS and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from the University of Michigan. Outside work, she chairs the board of the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU), a national nonprofit organization that provides objective research and education on American Muslims. In her free time, Marwa enjoys kickboxing and kayaking and, most importantly, spending time with her husband and two young children.
