Egon Zehnder’s North America CEO and Board Practice Welcomes New Leadership

NEW YORK, May 9, 2024 —  Egon Zehnder, the world’s preeminent leadership advisory firm, has announced the appointment of a new leader for the North America CEO and Board Practice. Pam Warren will join Chuck Gray at the helm of the practice, succeeding Lisa Blais. Warren’s tenure at Egon Zehnder spans over 27 years, and her experience as a partner spans industry sectors throughout North America. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Pam Warren as co-head of the North America CEO and Board Practice," said Chuck Gray. “Her commitment to values-driven leadership and extensive international expertise position her perfectly to deliver impactful results for both our firm and our valued clients.” 

Warren recently co-developed and co-led Egon Zehnder’s Chair Development Program with two cohorts completed. Based in Toronto, Warren has deep expertise in leadership best practices, CEO succession, and board recruitment and effectiveness. Additionally, as a former Co-Leader of the Firm’s Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council, she plays a pivotal role in upholding our commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion across the globe, including spearheading initiatives like the firm’s Global Board Diversity Tracker.  

“In today’s ever-evolving leadership landscape, the demand for a nuanced and dynamic approach is paramount, and I'm thrilled to partner with Chuck as we embark on the journey of guiding Egon Zehnder’s North America CEO and Board Practice forward,” said Pam Warren. “Continuing the momentum of Lisa Blais’s leadership, I am passionate about expanding Egon Zehnder’s role in unlocking Leadership for a Better World, and believe there is no better place to start this conversation than with CEOs and corporate boards.”
