Clemens Fahrbach is a Senior Expert with Egon Zehnder’s Leadership Solutions team. His work focuses on leadership development, organizational transformation and cultural change at corporations with a particular focus on enabling agile organizations. Clemens has worked on these aspects with corporations across a variety of industries including health, technology, private equity and financial services, as well as organizations from the public, private and social sector.

In today’s accelerating and disruptive world, leaders and management teams face unique challenges. Supporting their personal and professional journeys in developing the mindsets, behaviors and skills needed to lead, grow and thrive inspires me every day.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Clemens was a consultant with McKinsey & Company, Inc. leading projects in North America, Europe and Asia. During that time, he concentrated on developing management teams and large-scale cultural transformation programs. Clemens also served as a core member of McKinsey’s Agile Interest Group and developed and managed diagnostic and intervention tools for helping leaders and organizations become more agile. Together with colleagues, he built and ran the Young Leaders Forum, a global leadership development program for high-potential individuals at private, public and nonprofit organizations.

Clemens earned a Master’s in Psychology from Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich and received training in leadership and entrepreneurship at the Bavarian Elite Academy, a program for gifted students with leadership potential supported by the State of Bavaria, industry and universities. He is also due to complete a PhD in agile organizations from Ludwig-Maximilians- University.

Clemens Fahrbach berät Führungskräfte und Organisationen dabei, in Zeiten des rapiden technologischen Fortschritts und schnellen Wandels nachhaltig erfolgreich zu sein. Als Mitglied der Praxisgruppe Leadership Services unterstützt er Unternehmen in allen Fragen der Führungskräfteentwicklung, des Talentmanagements sowie bei großen Transformationsprojekten und kulturellem Wandel.

In seinem Werdegang spiegelt sich diese Begeisterung wider: Dem Studium der Psychologie folgte einige Zeit im Start-up-Umfeld, bevor er für McKinsey & Company Projekte in Nordamerika, Europa und Asien leitete. Er zählte zu den Kernmitgliedern der Agile Interest Group und unterstützte zahlreiche Unternehmen in ihrem kulturellen Wandel. Weiter war er verantwortlich für das Young Leaders Forum, ein Trainingsprogramm für hochtalentierte Führungskräfte in Zeiten disruptiven Wandels.

Parallel zu seiner Arbeit bei Egon Zehnder schreibt der ehemalige Stipendiat der Bayerischen EliteAkademie gerade seine Doktorarbeit an der Münchener Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, die sich ebenfalls mit den Herausforderungen der Transformation zu agileren Arbeitsweisen in internationalen Unternehmen auseinandersetzt.

Jenseits der Arbeitswelt ist Clemens ein leidenschaftlicher Wanderer, Fußballspieler und Segler. Außerdem engagiert er sich bei verschiedenen studentischen und sozialen Vereinen für die Entwicklung motivierter und verantwortungsbewusster junger Menschen.
