Kevin Lai, based in Singapore, is the Leader for Egon Zehnder’s Health Practice in Asia Pacific. He has been actively advising healthcare companies on Board and C-level positions including succession planning of key executives. He is also personally involved in the assessment and senior executives development. Other than Health, Kevin is a core member of the Consumer and Family Business Advisory practices.

I strive to impact individuals and organizations in order to help the good guys win. We cannot always develop the future for ourselves, but we can develop ourselves for the future.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Kevin was an Executive Director of the Singapore Economic Development Board, guiding national strategy, policy, and infrastructure development for the health and consumer industries. He was working closely with senior management teams from global healthcare companies to chart their investment plans in Asia, particularly in Singapore. Previously, he directed EDB’s operations in Northern Europe and Russia. Healthcare has been an area of interest for Kevin. He is a guest lecturer at Essec Business School in Singapore. He mentors several healthcare start-ups founded by young entrepreneurs in Singapore.

Kevin has a B.Eng with honors in chemical engineering from the University of Sheffield in the U.K. He enjoys spending time with his family, home improvement projects, and reading.
