He leads general management and CFO searches for global multinationals, midsized companies, and family-owned businesses. Leo is also a trusted advisor for management appraisal, leadership development, leadership team assessment, and team performance consulting.

What I love about my work is meeting great people with different perspectives and talents as well as working closely with clients to jointly tackle complex leadership challenges.

Before coming to Egon Zehnder, Leo was a Manager at the Boston Consulting Group in Munich, where he advised industrial clients with a particular focus on the automotive and machinery sector. He also served as BCG’s Recruiting Director in Germany.

Leo earned a BA in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich and a master’s in industrial and production engineering from the Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. When off work, he enjoys traveling, skiing with his children, and opening a bottle of good wine with his wife and friends.
