Bernhard Scholl, Egon Zehnder’s office leader in Miami, leads the North American Chemical and Process Industries segment of Egon Zehnder’s Industrial Practice. He advises leading chemical and agrochemical companies on board and CEO succession, executive team effectiveness, board effectiveness, and leadership development. Bernhard has particular expertise in executive, general management, supply chain leadership, and chief marketing officer recruitment in Europe, North America, and Latin America.

In today’s uncertain global economy, determining what makes a person or organization successful is a fascinating challenge. Every day is an opportunity to make a difference. Interacting with talented people around the world makes my job extraordinary.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Bernhard was Global General Manager at Cabot Corporation and Global Business Director at Dow Chemical. Previously, he managed various chemical businesses in Latin America, the U.S., and Europe at Rohm and Haas.

Bernhard has a BS in finance and economics from Babson College, an MS in politics and economics from the London School of Economics, and an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
