Calvin Yee, based in New York and Los Angeles, is the Head, Global Media, & Entertainment, a leader in the Sports & Digital Practice and serves clients in the luxury and consumer space. He is active in the CEO and Board Practices. His clients include established companies with a genuine appetite for transformation and “disrupters” that innovate and change consumer behavior. A certified executive coach and member of the firm’s U.S. Diversity and Inclusion Council, he also conducts management appraisals and advises clients on organizational effectiveness, team effectiveness, and leadership development.

I love being a guide in the discovery process, a sounding board for decisions, a partner in achieving goals, a motivator, and a wakeup call when needed.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Calvin held leadership roles at several consulting firms, where he helped senior leaders and their teams drive organizational change. He began his career in civil rights enforcement & community relations. He has invested in, advised, and served on the boards of small to midsize early-stage companies in growth sectors.

Calvin earned a BA and a Master of Government Administration from the University of Pennsylvania. As the father of a young boy, he is passionate about educational reform.
