Alyse Forcellina, based in New York, leads Egon Zehnder’s Health Practice for the Americas and is also active in the firm’s Board and Assessment and Development practices. Drawing on her experience in strategy and finance, she advises biopharma and health-care services companies on a wide range of talent-related matters including organizational design, succession planning, board composition, and recruitment and retention of executive talent.

Building the next generation of health-care leaders and organizations, in an increasingly complex and uncertain environment, is an awesome challenge and privilege that will have a lasting impact on patients’ lives and the world economy.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, Alyse was an Associate Principal at McKinsey & Company, where she helped health-care clients master business and organizational challenges. Prior to that, she was a Senior Principal in IMS Consulting’s North American practice, helping double revenues while building a best-in-class team, and a Managing Director at a boutique health-care consultancy. Earlier, Alyse worked at Vector Securities, an investment bank, advising biotech, diagnostics, and medical-device companies on M&A transactions and capital structure. She launched her career working for a United States Senator, covering health-care policy and legislative priorities.

Alyse earned a BA in American Studies from Yale, then a Master of Public Affairs (MPAff) from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and an MBA from the McCombs School of Business, both located at the University of Texas. She is certified in the 16pf and Hogan Development surveys and trained in the use of various leadership and coaching frameworks. Alyse enjoys spending time with her husband and teenage daughter, and she relaxes by running, practicing yoga, and reading great fiction.
