Michele Moncrief, based in Houston, is a trusted advisor to clients on leadership assessment and development as well as board and executive search. She works with business and functional leaders across various sectors including energy, materials and professional services as a member of Egon Zehnder’s Industrial, Services, and Executive Assessment & Development practices.
I’m inspired by striving to understand leaders’ skills and motivations, matching their unique characteristics to an organization’s needs, and helping them grow into their full potential.
Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Michele was with McKinsey & Company. Most recently, Michele was a leader on that firm’s professional development team, building consultant capabilities through evaluation, training and coaching. In the context of those efforts, she was responsible for building the talent pipeline for the North American energy and materials sector. Earlier, as an Engagement Manager she drove performance improvements for industrial, logistics and technology clients, primarily in commercial topics, growth strategy and organizational effectiveness.
Michele earned a BA in Business Administration (Business Honors and MIS) from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. Outside work, Michele can often be found with her husband cheering on their daughters on the basketball court and soccer field.
