Based in Dubai since 2008, Golnaz leads Egon Zehnder’s Consumer Practice in the Middle East, primarily serving international and regional clients in consumer-focused industries including multinationals in FMCG as well as regional groups and family-owned businesses with interest in Consumer and Retail sectors. She has been involved in top-level searches, management appraisals, and senior executive succession planning initiatives for a diverse portfolio of clients. She is also the regional champion for some of the firm’s functional practices including Chief Human Resources Officer, Chief Communications and Public Affairs Officers, as well as Chief Legal, Regulatory and Compliance Practice group.

I’m most passionate about solving problems, challenging conventional thinking, building and cultivating relationships, and earning the trust of clients.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Golnaz was a Senior Associate with Booz & Company, based in Dubai, where she advised regional clients on corporate strategy, go to market initiatives, and achieving operational/competitive efficiencies. She focused primarily on the Consumer and Pharmaceutical sectors, serving multinationals and regional family groups. Before that, Golnaz was with the Richemont Group in a variety of operational, business development, and marketing roles, based in Tokyo and New York.
