Our retained executive search process is efficient, thorough, transparent, honest and confidential. We engage with people as human beings to truly identify the right fit for each company. In-depth interviews and the use of tools such as SuccessFinder allow us a 360º assessment opportunity.

Our objective opinion of fit and likelihood of success in the new organizational setting is based on direct and indirect evaluation of personal and professional skills, work experience, reference checks and performance records.

Talent Pipeline

Building a diverse C-Suite talent pipeline gives companies access to curated, high-quality talent without being forced into a sub-optimal rush search. 

Our Talent Pipelining services allow companies to find the right pool of candidates, for future strategic assignments that will require new sets of skills or behaviors. This is a strategic model, in which we offer our network and market expertise to those companies to reach innovative solutions which your organization may have not considered before.

LS ExecSearch Talent Pipeline service is the best way to strategically prepare for the upcoming executive hiring that your global business strategy will demand.

Through our curated network of C-Suite talent within the consumer and retail industry, we have access to leaders who can take any organization towards their long-term objectives, paying close attention to the board’s diversity and expertise. 


How LS ExecSearch Works


Industry Specialists

We are specialized in the consumer industry and that means we understand the type of talent you need for your business. We have been building relationship with top talent for years and we have access to talent that generalist agencies cannot reach. We are not recruitment consultants, we are industry experts. 



Referral Only

“Great people know great people” is how the executive search was born. We work with referrals only because who is better suited to measure someone’s success than people who have worked with that individual previously. We make sure that we are not staying in small networks getting referrals to the same people, but leveraging our network to get referrals to the best diverse talent in the market. 


Innovative Engagement

Innovation is key for every industry and we in a people business connecting with people in the right way is key. We support our clients and candidates to use innovative video tools from the outreach stage throughout the whole interview process to make sure the that every candidate is treated in the best way and that the right candidate is hired every time.


Commitment to Diversity

Diversity improves strategic and tactical problem-solving and decision-making in organizations and has been proven to consistently lead to superior financial performance.

We at LS International are particularly passionate about diversity, and go the extra mile to identify the best diverse candidates. In the past 7 years, 45% of the candidates we have placed were women and +35% met other diversity criteria.

Even clients who do not give us a specific diversity mandate appreciate our efforts to challenge unconscious bias and infuse diversity into their workplaces.

Why do diverse talent work with us?


Diversity at Our Core

Our consultants really believe in the power of diversity and understand the challenges which diverse candidates face. This is not something we do as a trend, but equality is something that we know is best for our candidates, clients and society.


Building Trust

Giving candidates the space and time to really listen to their needs is important when building trust with diverse talents. We focus on building long-term relationships with industry leaders to find the right match at the right time.


Strategic Recruitment

In order to attract the best diverse talent, it is key to have a diverse team yourself. We have built a team of consults that is truly diverse in age, ethnicity, education, culture, etc… without this we would not be able to connect authentically. Check out our about page for more info!
