Connect With Me

Richard Stark, based in London, is a trusted advisor to global companies on talent strategy and succession planning. He primarily works with public companies, family businesses, and private-equity-backed clients in consumer goods, recruiting CEOs and C-level general managers and marketing and supply-chain executives. Richard leads the Consumer Product segment globally and is also active in the firm’s Supply Chain, Marketing and Executive Assessment and Development practices.

I love supporting people as they improve themselves and their organizations to realize their potential. Adding value and helping clients and candidates learn about themselves and their teams energizes me.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Richard was VP, Corporate Development, at Allied Domecq plc. Previously, he was a Principal and Leader of the UK Corporate Development Practice at Boston Consulting Group. During his time there, he played a key role in several major postmerger integration projects, including LloydsTSB, Polygram Universal, and GlaxoSmithKline.
