Because the World Needs Great Leaders

At Egon Zehnder, we know what great leaders can do. We share one goal: to empower our clients to drive lasting positive change through leadership. Each search engagement is customized to the specific objectives and dynamics of your needs.

Our more than 450 consultants, located in 68 offices across 40 countries, are experienced former business leaders. Because we operate as one collaborative team, we merge our individual talents with the collective expertise of our global network to bring you the right candidates. We deliver the power of the entire firm to every client, every time.

Our commitment to you does not end when we place a candidate. Success is not simply the placement but rather the long-term business impact a great leader can have. Our Accelerated Integration program goes far beyond onboarding by fully immersing the new hire into your business, team dynamics, and culture to get leaders off to their best start. As the journey continues, we can help to unlock the potential in individuals, teams, and organizations.

Their entire partnership will work for you to get the right candidate in front of you. And I think their incentive structures have been such that they basically all drink from the same well… it is a very important value to me.
