We specialize in executive search for the consumer industry, which includes companies in the FMCG/CPG, retail, e-commerce, fashion, luxury, and consumer healthcare sectors. We understand the dynamics, trends and talent needs of the domain, and personally know many of the best people across segments, functions, geographies and personality types. These rich and constantly-expanding networks enable us to be more effective in identifying the best available talent for your specific requirements.


LS International actively participates in national and international forums and events of the consumer industry. This not only makes us aware of current and emerging talent needs, but also expands our network. More candidates seek our advice and assistance in finding suitable roles in the consumer industry, which means we can offer clients better access to talent- including in skill areas that are new or in short supply.

Companies in the consumer industry need top talent not just for "business as usual" but also to manage the challenges and opportunities created by the emergence of disruptive business models and adoption of new technologies. This calls for attracting and retaining talent in areas such as Data Sciences, AI, IoT, social listening etc. The new environment also means that consumer companies need leaders with experience in managing accelerated innovation and new types of partner network. Such talent is not easily available from traditional peers, so executive search must look further afield, including other industries.
