—ZS principal’s passion for building trusted relationships earns the “Excellence in Client Service” recognition—


Evanston, Ill.—Oct. 23, 2018ZS Principal Jessica Jarvis was named to Consulting magazine’s “2018 Women Leaders in Consulting” list. Her strong reputation for building meaningful relationships and delivering world-class client service earned her recognition in the award’s Excellence in Client Service category.


“I’m thrilled by this honor,” said Jessica. “This is a moment to celebrate with my ZS team and clients and to reflect on what we’ve been able to accomplish together over the years.”


Based in Los Angeles, Jessica is a 17-year ZS veteran who oversees a global team of 150 people supporting one of the world’s leading biotechnology companies.


Clients view Jessica as an extension of their team – as a partner and trusted advisor. She’s known for working transparently and collaboratively, adapting to circumstances in real-time and for her “hands on” working style. Her innovative, holistic approach to problem-solving pushes clients beyond standard practices to drive positive patient outcomes, and she’s known for bringing the best of ZS to her clients by assembling teams with diverse skillsets and enlisting the help of fellow experts.


“Beyond her many accomplishments, Jessica exudes a number of relatable human qualities that distinguish her as a leader in consulting,” said Adam Siskind, a regional managing principal at ZS. “Her drive inspires our clients to make bold moves and keep an eye on the future.”


In addition to helping clients solve their most complex business issues, Jessica serves as a member of ZS’s Client Service Council—a team of four leaders who advise the firm on client management and relationship development. In just two years as council member, she’s had a tremendous impact on ZS’s clients and the firm.


Jessica attributes her success as a woman leader in consulting, in part, to ZS’s supportive culture, which is often described as a caring meritocracy that encourages entrepreneurial thinking.
