Based in Milan, Andrea Splendiani leads Egon Zehnder’s AI efforts in EMEA, where he is active in the Tech and Health Practices, working on executive search and leadership development projects with digitally native and tech-intensive scale-ups (with a particular focus on biotech, digital health, and b2c tech).

I have always believed in the importance of courage, and now find real, meaningful purpose in encouraging clients to make braver choices. The path to the future we need is neither the easiest nor the safest one.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Andrea was a General Manager focusing on business development and sales growth at Exciton, a division of the Luxottica Group, after serving as the group’s R&D Director responsible for product innovation and smart glasses. Before that he was an Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company.

Andrea earned a BS and an MS in physics (summa cum laude) from the University of Padova, a Diploma in Natural Sciences from the Galileian School of Higher Education, and an MBA (with honors) from IMD. Besides Italian, he speaks fluent English and French. Outside work, Andrea is a passionate kitesurfer who loves traveling to remote windy lagoons with his wife, son and daughter.
