Anja Herrmann strives to build long-lasting relationships with every client she supports. Based in New York, she has deep expertise placing, assessing, and developing executives across a broad range of functions in the consumer and digital sectors, with a special focus on retail, e-commerce, and luxury fashion.

What makes me love this job is the ability to create true impact through our work for clients and candidates. It is a privilege to accompany them on their journey as a resource and a sounding board.

Anja’s focus on direct-to-consumer businesses preceded her time at Egon Zehnder. She has held general management, commercial, product, and merchandising leadership roles with best-in-class lifestyle brands and early stage startups. Anja began her career in traditional fashion and luxury retail, working for brands that include Prada, Dior, and Ralph Lauren, before transitioning to the shopping-and-lifestyle website gilt.com.

Anja has an MBA from Harvard Business School, a master’s degree from the Community of European Management Schools, and a Lic. Oec. HSG from the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. She has lived in the U.S., Italy, France, the U.K., Switzerland, and Germany. Passionate about skiing, hiking, and the outdoors, Anja spends as much time as possible in nature with her family, friends, and young son.
