Kristi Maynor leads the firm’s Global Retail Practice. She previously headed the Chief Marketing Officer Practice and has been a core member of the Consumer and Digital practices. She advises the CEOs and boards of disruptors and those being disrupted. Kristi recruits across the C-suite in roles where transformation is the focus including CEO, board, Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Digital and Technology Officers. She also provides leadership development and board advisory services within retail, hospitality, and consumer products.

The business world is rapidly transforming and leadership potential is more important than ever. The easy answer isn’t always the right answer. I love deeply considering a client’s needs to cultivate transformational leaders.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Kristi built her career at the intersection of marketing and technology helping consumer brands grow through digital leadership. With Procter & Gamble, she leveraged emerging media solutions to launch new brands and increase loyalty. She led client growth and strategic initiatives at imc2, a leading digital agency, serving Fortune 500 clients such as Coca-Cola, P&G, Clorox, Samsung and Yum!.

Kristi has an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin and a Bachelor of Science from Northwestern State University. She cares deeply about identifying and developing potential. She gets to practice this with her two sons and daughter, teaching them gratitude, empathy, and giving back.
