Mike Laufer


Managing Partner


As a Managing Partner of ISG, Mike has a passion for creating lasting partnerships, both between ISG and the client, and more importantly, between the client and the right candidate. Over the years, he has cultivated strong relationships with multiple clients across diverse industries as well as thousands of potential aspirants. His appreciation of the unique culture of a company drives him to search not only for the necessary skill set, but also for the right chemistry, which will enhance that culture. Mike’s positive energy, astuteness, and deep well of experience enable him to maximize his relationships and deliver the very best service.

Prior to founding ISG, Mike was Vice President at a well-known financial recruiting firm where he was consistently recognized as one of the company’s top producers worldwide. He also values his ability to draw from his previous experiences in public accounting at KPMG and on Wall Street with Knight Securities.

Mike’s ability to read a situation spills over into his social life as he plays Texas Hold‘em Poker or ventures out on deep sea and freshwater fishing trips. His favorite pastime, however, is rolling around with his 2 young kids and his English bulldog. When eating, he always takes it up a notch, as he simply cannot get enough spice in his diet.
