Gregory Laka Biography

The corporate logo represents our belief in having proper relationships to provide total service in customer satisfaction.

As the center circle shows, it takes the client, the candidate, and Gregory Laka & Co. to have that interwoven bond to have a successful balance in an assignment.


Gregory G. Laka is the son of Polish immigrants who instilled in him the importance of work, ethics, family, and God.  At the age of fourteen, Greg left home and joined the seminary to become a Catholic priest with a missionary order.  Greg's values and early life experiences pervade the business culture at Gregory Laka & Company.

After college, Greg joined a recruiting firm where, within five years, he became the head of that 72-person organization. During this time, Greg was one of the pioneers in establishing one of the first data processing search organizations in the United States.

In 1969, Greg started a firm, Management Information Search, that quickly grew into a seven-branch operation employing nearly 100 people. M.I.S. gained the largest Midwestern United States market share in the computer search industry.

In 1987, after a brief retirement, Greg found himself seeking new challenges.  At the age of 43, Greg found that he missed his passion of helping organizations achieve their human capital goals, while helping individuals learn, grow, advance, and achieve their dreams.

Consequently, Greg returned to the executive search industry in full force.  Today, Gregory Laka & Company provides valuable staffing services and human capital solutions to include:

  • Retainer Search.
  • Contingency Search.
  • Temporary to Permanent Transition Option.
  • Short Term Consulting or Contract.
  • Long Term Consulting or Contract.

  • Business Process Re-engineering.
  • Candidate Tracking System Evaluation and Advisement.
  • Staff Evaluation and Skill Assessment.
