Carol Singleton Slade, based in London and Houston, leads Egon Zehnder’s global Energy and CleanTech Practice and its Board Consulting Practice in the U.S. She is also a member of Egon Zehnder’s Executive Management Committee. Carol works closely with CEOs and boards, particularly in the industrial sector, with a focus on energy. She also helps clients recruit, assess and develop the right individuals for crucial technical and operational senior executive roles.

I strongly believe that we can all be more than we think, and it’s incredibly fulfilling to help leaders, executive teams, and boards see more clearly and then take the next steps on their journeys.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Carol was the Commercial Lead at Arco for oil exploration in Alaska before moving into corporate strategy and financial advisory roles. Earlier in her career, she worked for BP, Hess, and BG, first as a geophysicist and then assuming broader responsibilities for regional exploration.

Carol earned a BS in physics from the Imperial College of Science and Technology in London, an MS in geophysics from Durham University, and an MBA from Southern Methodist University. She serves on the Houston NACD Advisory Board and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers. Carol also sits on the Houston Chapter Board of Big Brothers Big Sisters, an organization that gives those less fortunate the best chance to be all that they can.
