About Us

Lahire & Partners International is a consultancy firm specialising in Executive Search for Senior Executives and Rare Profiles.

Thanks to the extensive experience of its founding partners, Lahire & Partners International is able to offer an alternative solution to traditional Human Resource consultancy service-providers.

Why choose a "small specialised structure" for your search assignments ?

Our size is indisputably one of our key advantages.

Since we work with a limited number of clients, we are free to search wherever we wish, without the "off-limits" constraints that bind larger firms.

Working in real partnership with your Management Board, Lahire & Partners International integrates the company's strategic challenges and pledges to deliver outstanding performance in terms of Confidentiality, Guidance, Effectiveness and Results.
