Based in New York, Irina Wolpert is a sought-after member of Egon Zehnder’s Technology & Communications, Financial Services, and FinTech practices. She draws on extensive international leadership experience across these industries as well as a deep Go-To-Market (GTM) and operational background to support clients in meeting the challenges of CEO succession, CEO, CRO, and CMO searches, increasing boards’ effectiveness, and developing talent. She is recognized for her passion, energy, and innovative thinking and is also active in the Firm’s Marketing & Sales practice.

I feel privileged to impact the most critical part of any company’s success, namely its people. It’s about paving the way for a new generation of impactful, values-driven leaders while propelling sustainable growth and positive outcomes.

Before joining Egon Zehnder, most recently Irina was Amazon’s Global Head of Sales Enablement & Go-to-Market Strategy. That was preceded by 15 years at American Express in the U.S., Europe, and Asia in leadership roles spanning product management, marketing, business development, and sales enablement.

Irina completed an MBA in international marketing at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, followed by various leadership programs at Columbia and Wharton Business Schools. A big believer in the power of mentorship, she has focused on empowering a new generation of female leaders to thrive in their work environments. Outside work, Irina is passionate about everything related to dance and loves experiencing other cultures while traveling with her husband and two children.
