Rochelle Park, NJ, October 22, 2020 – ZRG, recognized earlier this year as the fastest-growing global executive search firm, welcomes Lisa Peacock-Edwards as Managing Director. Lisa, a search professional with 20 years of experience working with large enterprises and private equity-backed business, will lead the firm’s Digital, Data, Analytics, and AI Practice.

Lisa’s work has focused on organizations experiencing growth and transformation across digital, technology, data, and the customer, including high-profile digital and data transformation assignments for Fortune 50 companies and charters to drive growth within private equity portfolio companies. She is known for assembling local, expat, and diaspora talent to form strong executive teams. At the C-suite level, she has placed Chief Data Officer, Chief AI Officer, Chief Customer Officer, and CTO/CIO roles.

Lisa has lived and worked in North America, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe. She has spent the last seven years in the US, living in New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. She is a regular podcast and conference speaker, primarily discussing the subjects of diversity and women in executive roles.

“Lisa’s track record of success spans countries and continents,” said ZRG’s CEO, Larry Hartmann. “As a member of the ZRG team and leader of the Digital, Data, Analytics, and AI practice, I’m confident in the successful placements she will make on behalf of her clients in the digital space and beyond.”

“Innovation is everything to me within search, and ZRG is a leader in this regard. Coming from a psychology background with additional Hogan training, deep assessment is very important – and the Z Score is a game changer for my clients,” Lisa added. “In addition, ethics, integrity, and collegiate behaviors are non-negotiables for me, and ZRG embraces the same values that I have.”
