Egon Zehnder in Seoul

About This Office

Egon Zehnder's Seoul office was established in 2002, but we have worked in Korea since the early 1980s out of our Singapore, Hong Kong, and Tokyo locations.

Our three consultants and five professional and support staff serve the multinational conglomerates known as chaebols, many of which are headquartered in this city of 25 million. Seoul is a city of contrasts where the very old and new meet. The traditional side is very conservative, counterbalanced by this modern and sophisticated city.

This understanding helps when serving chaebols, family-owned enterprises, and government agencies as well as with hiring and integrating overseas senior executives. Our work includes leadership assessment and board advisory. We have a deep understanding of South Korea's sophisticated mobile banking industry, which has attracted international companies looking for this expertise, and we work closely with Korean conglomerates looking to globalize their organizations.

We look forward to partnering with you.
