Mohtashami succeeds Sanderson as UK head at Russell Reynolds

Global leadership advisory firm Russell Reynolds Associates has named Nanaz Mohtashami as head of the UK, succeeding Laura Sanderson.

Sanderson will assume a new role as co-head of Europe, Middle East & India, alongside Filiep Deforche in Brussels.

Mohtashami has been with Russell Reynolds since 2013. Before her appointment as head of the UK, she ran Russell Reynolds’ Global Medtech Practice, working with clients across the world.

In her new role, Mohtashami will look to build upon the firm’s leadership expertise at a time when UK leaders face economic challenges at home, geopolitical risk overseas and a growing urgency to respond to technological and environmental change.

In addition to her new position as co-head of Europe, Middle East & India, Sanderson will continue her role as co-lead of the board and CEO advisory practice in Europe.
