Josh Solera is based in Houston and leads Egon Zehnder’s Transport & Logistics and Aviation practices in the Americas as an active member of the firm’s Services Practice. He also works with funds and portfolio companies as part of the Private Equity Practice. Josh conducts executive and board search as well as management appraisals and supports the accelerated integration of transitioning executives.

I cherish the opportunity to help clients and individuals achieve things they didn’t think were possible.

Before joining Egon Zehnder’s team, Josh was an Engagement Manager with McKinsey & Company, where he led numerous projects in the global transport and private equity sectors, with a particular focus on airlines and freight rail. His assignments there included strategy, commercial improvement, organization design, and renewal. Josh also served on McKinsey’s internal Values Task Force. He started his career at the Parthenon Group, a leading boutique management consulting firm, where he advised clients on strategy and private equity acquisitions.

Josh earned an AB in history and French from Duke University and an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School. He is married with a young son, and his extended family plays an important role in his life. Josh is active around Houston as a member of the Advisory Board of the Hermann Park Conservancy, a volunteer at his son’s school and an avid fan of the Houston Astros. He is passionate about exploring cities and running in marathons.
