As the Managing Partner of Egon Zehnder’s Dallas office and the Global Head of Egon Zehnder’s Financial Officers practice, Arun Dhingra enjoys working with Boards and CEOs to recruit, assess and integrate CFOs and Audit Committee members. Arun consults on executive search, leadership development, and management appraisal for companies in a number of sectors.

I cherish the trust that I build with CEOs, boards, and CFOs as we navigate tricky waters and solve problems together.

Bringing a company’s finance department into alignment with the broader organization is a hallmark of Arun’s career. Before joining Egon Zehnder, Arun was a Vice President at Balanced Scorecard Collaborative, where he worked with CEOs and CFOs to define, measure, and operationalize their strategies. Arun has also worked as a consultant and auditor in Price Waterhouse’s New York office.

Arun has a BA in economics and psychology from Williams College in Massachusetts and an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business. Arun is a Certified Professional Accountant (CPA) in the State of New York. He and his wife, who have three teenage children, are actively involved in education philanthropy. When not at work, Arun’s favorite pastime is performing stand-up comedy.
