How can Egon Zehnder support the Mobile Devices & Apps industry?

Speed. We sustain the deep connections required to meet your needs, rapidly and to excellent effect. Our consultants work extensively across functions and have thriving relationships across big data, our Intelligent Systems, and telco. As important, our experts see the world as you do, requiring minimal time to kick-off an assignment or deliver the specific expertise required for even the most sophisticated assignments in Mobile Devices & Apps.

  • Range. We nurture lateral thinking and surface candidates who would otherwise remain in a separate sandbox.

We know what businesses need to succeed in the ever-expanding, increasingly competitive mobile world.
  • Foresight. We have strong ties to companies of all sizes, from start-ups and their investors, to recently IPO’d companies, to established F100 players. These relationships give us an insider’s perspective on the future, firmly grounded in the now

How we operate
