"I worked with LS International for more than 2 years during my time at Danone, collaborating on several searches for Commercial Director-level and VP positions in global roles and some markets. More than the quality of candidates and cultural fit that LS International understood well, they were super flexible and agile : a huge advantage for us at the time. They also managed the candidate experience well despite not always getting clarity or speed from our side. I can only recommend LS International as a trusted partner for search and talent pool missions, and hope to collaborate again with them soon."

"Lauren is very approachable, open and progressive, and I was well impressed with the agility she has demonstrated to cope with different change in the process. It was refreshing and helpful to get access to the video interviews she makes available. I like how she uses Linkedln and podcast to keep talent engaged as well as potential clients. This and more makes her a very good judge of talent and well connected in different areas and geographies."

"LS International was recommended to me when I had a crucial hiring need for a senior German executive. As soon as I reached out to them time seemed to speed up! They quickly sought to really understand what my needs were produced an excellent and diverse candidate pool whom they had vetted. The shortlist I interviewed were all impressive. Most importantly though the hire we made has not only proven an excellent fit, he is making a prodigious impact both commercially and organisationally."
