Sarah Van Dyck leads Egon Zehnder’s US Consumer Practice and is a core member of the Chief Marketing and Digital Practices. Based in San Francisco, she advises both industry leaders and emerging disruptors on executive search, leadership development, and board advisory services. Sarah’s 25 years of experience as a marketing executive with consumer and technology companies have shown her that organizational capacity is built when courageous and compassionate leaders invest in the potential of their teams.

I get my greatest joy partnering with leaders to illuminate opportunities to grow their organizations and themselves in ways they never imagined possible.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Sarah was VP of Global Brand Marketing at Rosetta Stone. Previously, she was a Marketing Executive at LivingSocial. She was also Managing Director of MODO Group, where she oversaw global brand strategy initiatives for clients including Microsoft, Starbucks, Grupo Modelo, and Sony Ericsson. Sarah began her marketing career at Procter & Gamble.

Sarah received an MBA from INSEAD and a BA in history from Brown University. Outside of work, she enjoys watching her two teenage children develop their own passions and interests. She’s grateful they share their parents’ sense of adventure and curiosity so the family can explore the four corners of the earth together.
