Caroline Zegers is a thought leader in the field of Executive Compensation. She advises supervisory and management boards on remuneration, regulations and governance. In recent years, the connection with the sustainability goals has been central in this advice. She assists in designing clear and measurable ESG (Environmental, social and governance) KPI’s. In this way she contributes to a more sustainable business, where financial results as such are no longer sufficient to be rewarded.
For the past 30 years, she has been working for Deloitte , of which 23 years as a partner. High-quality service to clients has always been her priority. Next to being an advisor on executive and equity compensation to large (listed) companies, she took the opportunity within Deloitte to develop the Supervisory Board and Executive Women programs. In that context, she organizes various events, interviews board members and develops high-quality (in-house) courses on themes with great relevance to the Boardroom. Sustainability, including diversity & inclusion, has been a regular topic of discussion there. She brings along a large network of (female) board members and supervisory board members.
In addition to her work with Deloitte, she also holds and has held various (advisory) board positions for example with the Nederlandse Orde van Belastingadviseurs, the Stichting Dress for Success, One Young Word, the Stichting Toezicht Ledenobligaties-vrij FrieslandCampina and Female Ventures.
Caroline graduated cum laude from the University of Leiden and followed a postmaster Executive Coaching at the VU.
