Executive recruiter Egon Zehnder and US-based Genesis Advisers, a leadership consultancy, today announced a global alliance to capitalize on their firms’ existing expertise and extend their global reach.
The partnership combines Egon Zehnder’s global footprint experience in executive search, talent transition and integration practice, with that of Genesis Advisers and its co-founder, well-known leadership expert Dr. Michael Watkins.
“We are excited to forge this alliance with Michael Watkins and Genesis Advisers,” said Mark Byford, from Egon Zehnder. “Integrating successfully into a new role, especially at the highest levels of leadership, is more complex than ever today. Over the last few years, our practice has naturally gravitated beyond solely placing candidates, to helping our clients onboard them and integrate them successfully, thereby significantly increasing the value they can deliver in their role in the first year.”
“We have found in Egon Zehnder an accomplished partner who is also passionate about strengthening a company’s ability to successfully integrate new leaders,” said Genesis Advisers CEO, Shawna Slack. “Together we will enable leaders and their organizations to accelerate integration, and ultimately scale this capability globally.”
The accelerated integration and leadership transition offerings of Egon Zehnder and Genesis Advisers will be offered across the 66 offices in 40 countries where Egon Zehnder operates.
