Egon Zehnder is a global executive search firm. Egon Zehnder is the world's third largest executive search and talent strategy firm.[7] The firm offers services and expertise in the fields of Executive Search, Board Consulting and Leadership Strategy Services.

History[edit]

The firm was founded in 1964 by Egon Zehnder (a 1956 Harvard Business School graduate) and operates in 37 countries with 63 offices.[8]

In 1992 the Wall Street Journal reported that Dr. Egon P.S. Zehnder who at the time was 62 had transitioned out of running the firm and that A. Daniel Meiland who had been the firm's regional director for North America would be named chairman of the executive committee and chief executive officer of this executive search concern.[2]

In 2000 the Wall Street Journal reported that Egon Zehnder International (as the company was called at the time) was the largest executive search firm in Europe.[1]

From 2008 until 2014 Damien O’Brien was the chief executive officer.[5] O'Brien began serving as Chairman in 2010.[5] Currently Rajeev Vasudeva serves as CEO[4]

Corporate structure[edit]

In 2013 the Wall Street Journal reported that firm has some 1200 employees, including 420 consultants.[6] In early 2013, the firm rebranded worldwide, dropping International from its name.
