Egon Zehnder and Genesis Advisers Forge Exclusive Global Alliance to Expand Innovative Leadership Integration Offerings
Egon Zehnder, the world’s leading privately-owned executive search and leadership consulting firm, and US-based Genesis Advisers, a recognized leader in leadership development and transition acceleration, today announced a global alliance to capitalize on their firms’ existing expertise and develop innovative offerings in the burgeoning space of leadership transition and integration.
“Together we look forward to expanding our offerings, and researching innovative solutions, building on the new standards we have set for enhancing the success of talented newly-appointed leaders.”
The partnership combines Egon Zehnder’s global reach and nearly 50 years of acumen in executive search, leadership assessment and appraisal, and its growing talent transition and integration practice, with that of Genesis Advisers and its co-founder, Dr. Michael Watkins. Dr. Watkins is an acclaimed leadership expert, and author of the “on-boarding bible”*1The First 90 Days, the pre-eminent publication on leadership transitions, a tenth anniversary edition of which is being published this spring.
“We are excited to forge this alliance with Michael Watkins and Genesis Advisers,” noted Mark Byford, joint lead for Egon Zehnder’s global innovation practice. “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.” Byford added, “Together we look forward to expanding our offerings, and researching innovative solutions, building on the new standards we have set for enhancing the success of talented newly-appointed leaders.”
“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.
