Our search process has been time-tested with the completion of hundreds of assignments. Each search adheres to our core principles – timely research focus, thorough vetting, a guarantee of a senior point of contact – while providing a level of customization and flexibility to ensure your unique needs are met.

Search Understanding

A successful search requires a comprehensive and clear understanding of your corporate culture and the specific type of candidate you require. We spend the necessary time upfront speaking to as many stakeholders as possible in order to refine the position profile and target companies.

Research Strategy

In collaboration with our client, we develop a target group of companies and create a list of executives who currently and previously have worked with these organizations. We utilize a four step approach to our research: “cold research”, social media (e.g. LinkedIn), sourcing and our database.

Outreach Program

Our team of search consultants, always including the Partner in charge of the assignment, will actively reach out to prospective candidates and sources through telephone calls, email and social media. We provide our clients with regular feedback and updates (weekly or bi-weekly) on the search according to their preferred lines of communication.

Qualifying and Interviewing

The Partner will interview every single qualified candidate. This crucial step is not and will never be delegated to a junior consultant or associate. By treating prospective candidates with the respect and attention they deserve, we demonstrate our and your commitment to the search.

The Short-List

After typically interviewing between 8-12 candidates per role, the Partner will then present our client with the best 3-5 candidates.

The Hire

Having established trust with candidates and clients through our commitment to providing a senior point of contact, we will manage the candidates through the interview process. The Partner will assist with the offer negotiation and complete all required background checks including references.

Follow Up

Your success is our success. By remaining in regular contact with both the client and the placed candidate the Partner will monitor the transition and placement with an eye to long-term success.


Lakeshore offers a fixed or percentage fee depending on the compensation, level of the role, and complexity of the assignment.


We are confident in our unique search strategies and success rate. To reinforce our confidence, as such we guarantee each one of our placements.
