What We Do

Digital Transformation

Every organization is, by now, somewhere on the path of digital transformation. That is as true at Egon Zehnder as it is for your company, though exactly where on that path you may fall varies widely.  

We have been partnering with clients in the digital space since this era began, helping some of the most powerful disruptive forces find the talent and leadership skills they have needed to scale and grow. We work with the most prominent Unicorns in all categories, from health and hardware to media and finance. We have also worked closely with existing companies all around the world to help them respond to this disruption, finding and developing the right leaders and laying the groundwork for the culture change necessary to adapt to the digital world.

At Egon Zehnder, we understand that disruption crosses industries and time zones, and we build our client teams accordingly. Our unique global reach and our consultants’ extensive background working in industry allows us to find and develop talent in places most might not think to look. Our collaborative digital transformation teams work with pioneers in every part of an industry’s value chain all over the globe and help enterprises make the critical adaptations needed to survive and thrive, whether by joining the omnichannel marketplace and sharing economy or by learning to leverage data within their organization. We hope to do the same for you.
