Our company culture and company success are based on a profound awareness of the market, on long-term and reliable cooperation with our clients and on an international network of amazing executives.
Our company was founded in 1983 in Frankfurt am Main as Plaut Personalberatung GmbH. In 1996, Plaut was able to win over the long-time managing director of Dahlke & Partner in Vienna, DDr. Gabriele Lehner, together with her successful team. Thus, in just a few years Plaut Personalberatung GmbH became a market leader in Vienna.
In 2001, Ddr. Gabriele Lehner as Managing Partner and her Business Partner Lydia Goutas, MBA, took over Plaut Personalberatung Vienna in a management buy-out as 100 percent owners.
In 2002, Plaut Personalberatung turned into Lehner Executive Partners. Since 2009, Lehner Executive Partners is AESC certified and the only Austrian Executive Search Firm member of the Cornerstone International Group.

This worldwide network of 70 owner-managed Executive Search companies is currently under the top 10 of the globally active Recruitment Consulting companies.
This strong presence on all continents now makes it possible to serve clients all over the world.
In addition to our long experience in the DACH region, our clients value our competency in Central and Eastern Europe. Since 2012, our office in Moscow has been successful for international clients in the growing market of Russia.
