This firm was established in 1994, by Korn/Ferry International. Korn/Ferry International was the first global player in the top executive search industry to enter the Romanian environment after 1990. By doing this, the firm has set the foundations of the top executive search industry.
In 2000, after Korn/Ferry International became a listed company on NYSE (KFY) its Romanian entity went through a management buy-out and changed its name into Leadership Development Solutions (LDS / the Firm). Leadership Development Solutions continued to be the exclusive partner in Romania of its former mother company, Korn/Ferry International, until 2010.
After the take-over, in 2000, our Firm has developed its own business model and its proprietary technology which helped it consolidate its premier position in the Romanian leadership environment.
In 2014, on our Firm’s 20th Anniversary, Leadership Development Solutions has entered into an alliance with Agilium Worldwide, an organization of like-minded, privately owned, international search firms.
The best way of finding more about us is to ask any senior executive, familiar with Romania, what they heard about us.
