Karena Man, based in San Francisco, leads the Data practice and the West Coast Tech Officers practice. Her clients call upon her deep expertise in technology infrastructure, software development, cybersecurity, and ML/AI in recruiting and assessing engineering leadership talent, active in the Firm’s Sports Practice, as well as on developing and scaling up capabilities in emerging technologies.

Technology has made our lives better, but I believe that it is leadership that will change the world.

Before becoming a consultant with Egon Zehnder, Karena was a leader in Facebook’s engineering executive search team. Prior to that she recruited engineering leaders, CTOs, and CIOs as an Engagement Leader for the firm. Previously, she was part of the IT practice at Bain and Company, working on IT optimization and transformation, IT cost reduction, and technology road map assignments for clients across all industries. Before that, she was IT Project Manager at an insurance company based in San Francisco. Karena began her career in technology as an analyst in the electronics and high-tech practice of Andersen Consulting (now Accenture).

Karena earned a BA in political science from the University of California at Berkeley and is currently studying for an MA in government at Harvard University.
