Jean-Pierre Pedrazzini, based in Geneva, leads Egon Zehnder’s Executive Assessment and Development Practice in Switzerland. He supports both publicly traded and family-owned companies as a trusted advisor for executive and board searches, effectiveness and performance reviews, succession planning, and talent pipeline management.

The most rewarding part of my work is helping leaders recapture lost wisdom and steer their organizations toward a future marked by greater wholeness and possibilities.
