At the beginning of the year, we opened our third international office, in Geneva. Geneva is an important hub not only for the European headquarters of various consumer goods companies, but also for a large number of family businesses and family offices. It is of strategic importance for the worldwide support of our clients.
Nick Harris joined our team at the beginning of the year. Nick, who has lived in Geneva for many years, has been with Egon Zehnder for the past decade, including as a Leadership Team Member of the firm’s global Consumer Goods & Retail Practice. In his new role, he will focus on establishing our Geneva office and, in particular, strengthening our international client relationships. In addition to his industry specialisation, Nick has experience in talent management and supporting succession processes, particularly in family-run companies.
