Egon Zehnder Reports Double-Digit Global Growth for 2018

ZURICH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Egon Zehnder, the world’s leadership advisory firm, today announced its
2018 financial results, reporting a 10% increase in global revenues to
CHF 738 million versus CHF 668 million in 2017.

Egon Zehnder’s 2018 financial performance reflects consistent increases
across all its major geographies including the United States, Germany,
Great Britain, other Western European markets, China and India. Revenues
grew across Executive Search, Board Advisory Services, CEO Succession
and Leadership Advisory Services, including Leadership Development. The
Consultant base grew to more than 460 worldwide at the close of the 2018
fiscal, while the firm maintained its global footprint of 68 offices
across 40 countries.

The Firm’s Board Advisory Services accelerated in 2018, with Board
consulting, Director appointments and Board effectiveness engagements
contributing to the increase. “Board governance today is more
scrutinized than ever – and the efficacy of the Board continues to be a
pressure point for organizations globally,” stated Jill Ader,
Chairwoman, Egon Zehnder. “Leadership requirements are changing
dramatically, so evolving the Board’s mindset to a new gold standard for
CEO and executive leadership is central to their ability to transform
their organizations.”

In addition to CEO and Executive Search and Board Advisory Services, the
Firm’s service portfolio encompasses leadership advisory consisting of
Executive Assessment, Leadership Development, Team Effectiveness, and
Cultural and Organizational Transformation.

While Executive Search will always be an important part of the work we
do, we are increasingly being asked to provide broader leadership
advisory services to support our clients,” noted Edilson Camara, Chief
Executive Officer, Egon Zehnder. “Technology’s impact across the
organizational ecosystem cannot be over-stated. Yet while technology and
digitization change how we work, what’s needed more than ever is
humanity, authenticity and empathy in our leaders. Success has never
been more complex to achieve.”
