Egon Zehnder Names New Dallas Office Leader

Arun Dhingra to Lead Dallas Office as Christopher Pfeiffer Turns Focus to Healthcare Practice

DALLAS March 29, 2016 – Egon Zehnder, a global leader in executive search and leadership advisory services, today announced that Arun Dhingra has been named leader of the firm’s Dallas office. He assumed the role from Christopher Pfeiffer, who led the office through significant growth over the past five years. In addition to heading the Dallas office, Dhingra will continue his leadership of Egon Zehnder’s US Financial Officers (CFO) Practice.

“As head of the firm’s U.S. Financial Officers Practice, Arun has helped dozens of public and private clients find the leaders they need to manage growth in highly dynamic environments,” said Karl Alleman, Egon Zehnder’s U.S. Managing Partner. “This experience makes him particularly well-suited to lead our office in Dallas, given the imperative many organizations there face to capitalize on the broad economic strength of the Dallas-Fort Worth area.”

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Dhingra was a Vice President at Balanced Scorecard Collaborative, where he led the firm’s Financial Services practice. Earlier, Dhingra was a Principal in the Management Consulting Practice of Price Waterhouse, where he specialized in the finance function from the firm’s New York office.

Christopher Pfeiffer will return to serving the firm’s healthcare clients, with an emphasis on advising healthcare-centered private equity firms and healthcare services organizations. Pfeiffer will also work closely with boards, CEOs and executive teams on succession issues and executive assessment and development engagements.

“Christopher’s leadership of the Dallas office during the area’s significant diversification allowed Egon Zehnder to deepen its relationship with one of the country’s key economic hubs,” Schneider noted. “He has provided a solid foundation for Arun to build upon in this new phase in the office’s trajectory.”
