"I am very much looking forward to working closely with Ed as our new CEO. We bring complementary skills and styles deeply rooted in a shared view of the future and our unique firm values.

In 2013, Ed moved to Canada to lead the practice across three offices, doubling the firm's size across Canada and tripling its profits. He is now based in Toronto.

"I feel humbled and honored to serve our firm as CEO, working together with Jill to continue shaping the distinctiveness of Egon Zehnder. Our firm is truly unique in its ability to respond to client needs in light of the convergence observed in various aspects of leadership advisory and executive search. For almost six decades, Egon Zehnder has been a disruptor, innovating the way we advise clients. This will continue, as we further bring to the market the unmatched strength of our equal, truly global partnership," said Mr Camara

The process to appoint the CEO was run by the Chairwoman and a Nominations Committee. It was an inclusive process that included input from the entire partnership.
