Our Philosophy

At Leaderia, we are convinced that the recruitment of executives and managers, for sectors as sensitive as the hotel and catering industry, agriculture and the agri-food industry, is a crucial mission for the success of the companies that make them up.

Leaderia is more than a recruitment firm, Leaderia positions itself as the partner of its clients’ human resources policy and management.

It is essential for us to create a close relationship with our clients that allows us to know them in depth: corporate culture, development and recruitment ambitions, HR and CSR policy, geographical constraints, etc.

We hunt heads, with heart.

If our expertise is recognized today, it is because this quest for excellence is the driving force of our teams. The desire to find the candidate who perfectly matches your needs and who will help your organization grow is our objective day after day.

Your issues are ours!

« This is when I was finishing my studies of Haut Enseignement Commercial and preparing my oral exams to enter one of the very high-demanding French Business School that I met a consultant specialized in recruitment who helped me a lot at this very decisive step of my career. I found out how recruiting someone for a company might continuously influence the future of a firm, an institution, or a person ! I then got passionate about this job and tried to really understand what working as a consultant means. My choice was to start with two successful operational experiences at the service of global manufacturers, leaders in their industries. How to take part to the continuous and profitable growth of our economy and our firms and how to contribute to the development of candidates that we recruit – in a long-term manner ? This is the equation on which we are working every day, with the greatest passion »

I have known Anaïs Deleau and the Leaderia firm for several years and she was able to put me in contact with the right company at the right time.

General Manager – Grand Hôtel du Soleil d’Or - Megève

It was just a year ago that Leaderia placed me in the company that resembles ME. Having been in contact with Anne-Marie Lefèvre for several years, she immediately knew that this position was made for me. And she wasn’t wrong!

Alexandre DELOGE
Plant Director - Eurial

Having applied for an opportunity offered by the firm for a site management position, Anaïs supported me throughout the recruitment process.


The interview with Aurélien was professional, productive, creative and empathetic. He was interested in my individuality, my potential, my singularity and my professional desires (without distinction of gender or origin) and above all was not limited in his reflection to my professional past alone.

Josselin HUTTER
General Manager - Hôtel Saint André des Arts - Paris

The recruitment process implemented by Leaderia is particularly successful. The brief regarding the employer’s needs is clear and precise, the exchanges with Anne-Marie are natural and constructive.

Jean-Marc Venin

Anaïs, the consultant who supported us on our various recruitments, made a deep effort to understand our company beyond the position: our human environment, our philosophy, our values, in order to offer us a competent candidate compatible with our team.

Sales Director - AMI Ingredients

I would like to underline with this testimony the quality of Leaderia’s support, illustrated to begin with by the time spent understanding our needs, our DNA and the relevance of the questions asked during the brief.
