July 18, 2022 – Global executive search and human capital solutions provider SpenglerFox has added Zsuzsanna Zimonyi to its executive leadership team as partner, head of life sciences, and head of Switzerland. “Zsuzsanna has made a considerable contribution to our business since she joined us in 2013, and today the life sciences practice is one of the biggest contributors to our overall business,” said Jens Friedrich, CEO of SpenglerFox. “Her leadership of this business unit, her passion and professionalism, and ongoing contribution to the exponential growth of our presence in Switzerland, are simply exemplary. I am proud to welcome her to the executive leadership Team and looking forward to working with her and the rest of the leadership team as we prepare the business for a very exciting future.”
Ms. Zimonyi joined SpenglerFox in 2013 after 13 years with Korn Ferry, where her last role was that of principal. During her years in executive search, she specialized in recruitment for general management, commercial, and scientific roles. Her main specialty practices are life sciences and consumer goods. In addition, she has a wide range of experience in the industrial and technology industries. Over the years, Ms. Zimonyi has completed a significant number of assignments across Western Europe, CEE, and the U.S. Besides her executive search activities, she is also an active member of the SpenglerFox leadership advisory practice.
“I am honored and excited to be part of this great team and to have the opportunity to shape the journey of SpenglerFox into the future,” said Ms. Zimonyi. “Like everything else, talent consultancy is undergoing a major transformation worldwide, and I am delighted to help the company navigate through it and develop the business internally and externally to meet the upcoming challenges.”

The firm also has a dedicated focus on board work for small to mid-sized companies and a research team that provides talent mapping and pipelining solutions.
SpenglerFox recently entered into an agreement with Ezekia to adopt its CRM software platform across its office network. “As we prepare for significant business growth over the next few years, we needed a modern CRM system which will support us throughout this journey,” said Mr. Friedrich. “Our consulting teams require a system that is flexible, intuitive, offers state of the art tools and functionality, and is adaptable to changing needs. Our clients depend on accurate and timely market intelligence, and the ability to provide feedback on candidates quickly and online. Ezekia meets all our needs, current and into the future, and we are excited to be partnering with them to provide a best-in-class CRM platform to our internal and external stakeholders.”

“SpenglerFox conducted a lengthy and thorough due diligence process,” said Joseph Blass, CEO of Ezekia. “Ezekia aims to offer the best features and the best service, but perhaps even more significantly, we put an emphasis on rapid development, because as a tech provider it is not good enough to be the best today; rather one also needs to be the best for a year, two years, and five years from now. SpenglerFox shares this vision, and we are delighted that they chose us.”
