Posted by ZS on May 9, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Sausalito, a small town just outside San Francisco, was the perfect backdrop for a recent event sponsored by ZS’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). That’s because the rare cloud-free sky offered crystal clear views of the Golden Gate Bridge, and “building bridges” was the central theme of this year’s two-day summit.

Each year the WLI, a group dedicated to supporting women in building successful, long-term consulting careers, brings our firm’s women together to discuss topics of particular interest to women, share stories and best practices and gather inspiration from peers.

If there’s one thing ZS Associate Principal Christina Corridon feels passionately about, it’s healthcare. This passion is what led her to pursue higher education—she earned her MBA and master’s in public health while working full time—and ultimately what led her to ZS in 2014.

Since joining, Christina has found her home in the oncology vertical. She works primarily on marketing strategy projects, taking our competitive scenario planning offering to clients.

As a well-traveled veteran, Glenn has lived his work

Posted by ZS on Apr 21, 2017 2:00:00 PM

Several years ago Glenn, now a principal in ZS’s Chicago office, left his suburban Chicago hometown to pursue a degree in electrical engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Upon graduation, he became an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army and spent seven years stationed in Japan and the Middle East.

After leaving the Army, Glenn worked as an engineer in the oil industry, a job that gave him the opportunity to continue doing something he had grown to love—traveling the world. He worked for months at a time in places like France, Singapore and Africa.

Finally ready to return to his roots and looking for a new challenge, Glenn enrolled in Northwestern University’s Master of Management and Manufacturing program, a dual degree program between Kellogg and the engineering school.
