Tracy R. Wolstencroft is chairman of Heidrick & Struggles, a position to which he was appointed after serving as president and chief executive officer (2014 – 2017). The firm is a premier global consultancy that advises on the power of talent and leadership to accelerate performance and transform organizations.

Previously, Tracy was a longstanding partner at Goldman Sachs and served on its firmwide partnership committee. During his 25-year career (1985 – 2010), he led a wide array of Goldman’s investment banking businesses and advised a diverse range of corporate and government clients across the United States, Asia and Latin America. During his tenure, he spent four years living in Asia focused on China, Japan and Singapore. Upon retiring, and given his deep commitment to climate change, he continued to serve as an advisor to the firm and chair of Goldman’s global clean technology practice.

Tracy actively serves on a number of boards including as co-chair of the International Rescue Committee―an organization that responds to the world’s most challenging humanitarian crises and helps refugees whose lives are shattered by conflict and disaster. He also serves as vice-chair of the National Geographic Society, a trustee of the Brookings Institution, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.


Tracy earned his BA from Bowdoin College.
