Welcome to Lahti Search Consultants

Lahti Search Consultants was established in 1997 as the first executive search firm to work exclusively on enrollment management searches for colleges and universities. We remain committed to this critical area in higher education and have assisted nearly 250 institutions by identifying and placing qualified candidates.

Institutional Focus

During the search process, Lahti Search Consultants develops a comprehensive understanding of each institution and its unique opportunities, challenges and enrollment expectations. This knowledge guides how we customize the search to attract the best-matched candidates who will thrive and be successful for the institution.

Candidate Network

Our extensive network of colleagues and practitioners in the enrollment field allows us to successfully identify and cultivate current and emerging leaders.  Enrollment professionals know and trust Lahti Search Consultants and welcome contact from us. We engage in open and direct dialogue with candidates throughout the search process, which results in a diverse and talented candidate pool.

What people are saying

Terry is effective, thoughtful, and caring. When she called to say that I had been nominated for the Harvey Mudd position, I initially said that I didn’t think it would be a good fit for me. But Terry was politely and enthusiastically persistent, and I was extremely impressed after our first meeting. I was particularly pleased with the time that Terry took to get to know Harvey Mudd so that she could speak knowledgably about what kind of person would be more effective there.
