Our definition of executive search
Executive search is the ideal way to fill management positions – the best possible means for the best possible solution: targeted and effective.
Added value of executive search and success parameters
How do you find the right solutions today for the challenges of tomorrow? The enormous economic, social and technological dynamics lead to this question playing a central role in filling management positions. The answer lies in the fine art of managing potential. This involves both highly specialised knowledge as well as general skills, values and attitudes. It also means striking a balance between innovation and risk. In other words, it is about the whole person. That is our philosophy – and the standard by which we are measured.

"Being a headhunter is a passion for me. The open, often in-depth discussion with interesting personalities who are about to make a serious decision about their professional and personal development always inspires me." - Dr. Klaus Aden, Co-founder of LAB
Executive search and globalisation
Many of our clients have been internationally active for decades – that’s why they need management and professional expertise at their production, procurement and sales locations all over the world – LAB is the right partner for this task. In order to cover all other international business centres including our home market in Central Europe, we have been an active member of Penrhyn International since its foundation. Penrhyn
represents 23 owner-managed executive search companies in more than 40 business centres across five continents.
Executive search and digitisation
Digitisation is not only putting most industry structures under strong pressure to change – it is also creating new and urgent challenges in filling prominent specialist and management positions. As of today, well over half of the executives placed by us are making a significant contribution to the digital transformation of their company, business model or value creation network.
This makes us a value-creating partner and driving force in the digital transformation process of your organisation. Talk to us – we would be happy to share our success stories with you.
We are convinced that we can only meet our high service standards if we truly understand our clients’ markets and business models. That is why we have organised ourselves in competence centres in which we bundle our expertise for all major sectors and systematically develop it further.
Our goal is to be among the market-leading consulting firms in the respective sectors.
