EVANSTON, Ill. – May 6, 2016 – Rohan Fernando, leader of the business consulting group at global sales and marketing firm ZS, was named one of the “Top 25 Consultants” of 2016 by Consulting magazine.


Recognized by the magazine for excellence in leadership, Fernando has led major client accounts across North America, Europe and Asia and launched multiple ZS offices. He also is an expert in health care commercialization strategy, mergers and product launch.


Fernando and the other award recipients will be honored at the eighth annual Top 25 Consultants Awards Dinner on June 16 at The Mandarin Oriental in New York City.


“This recognition is an immense honor for me and the many people I have worked with over the past 20 years at ZS,” Fernando said. “ZS has a collaborative, friendly culture that encourages growth and development. I’d like to thank the firm and the many mentors who have helped me tackle a wide variety of challenges over the years. I also appreciate my clients, who are fun to work with and have encouraged me to push the envelope on creativity and innovation.”


‘A Fearless Leader’


Today, Fernando leads the firm’s global business consulting group, where he works to integrate capabilities from across the firm and advance ZS’s advisory, analytics, data science and customer insights work. Before taking on his current role, Fernando served as regional managing principal for ZS in Asia over the past four years, where he launched the firm’s Singapore office and oversaw an expansion of its presence in India.


“Rohan is a fearless leader who always eagerly embraces challenging and seemingly daunting projects,” said ZS Managing Director Chris Wright. “We have consistently tasked him with solving some of our most pressing and complex issues, and he has never failed to deliver. This recognition is well-deserved, and I know he will continue to play a crucial role in enhancing our capabilities and client service in the years ahead.”

Fernando is the seventh ZS principal to be named a “Top 25 Consultant” by Consulting magazine.
