SEATTLE, November 13, 2023 – Egon Zehnder, the world’s preeminent leadership advisory firm, today announced the opening of a new Pacific Northwest office in downtown Seattle with another location in Vancouver, British Columbia opening in early 2024. Egon Zehnder’s presence in the Pacific Northwest will establish the company as the first leadership advisory firm with physical offices in both locations, allowing the firm to better serve clients and the community in the region. 

Our Seattle office hosts three founding consultants: Chris King-Sidney, most recently an industrials and energy executive; Patrick Mendenall, a tech and gaming industry executive; and Sara O'Gorman, prior leader in retail and early-stage company exec and investor. This founding team of leadership advisory experts all based in Seattle will bring crucial, local perspective to a thriving business community that has significant potential for future growth.

Seattle continues to grow in both traditional and innovative industries while Vancouver is home to some of the world’s leading institutions, from technology to finance, and beyond,” said German Herrera, Egon Zehnder U.S. Managing Partner. “While Egon Zehnder has served clients in this area for more than two decades, we’re incredibly excited to expand our footprint with dedicated offices in Seattle and soon in Vancouver. We are drawn to the deep sense of community in this region and look forward to building long-term relationships with leaders who are driving innovation, navigating disruption, building dynamic teams, and more.”
