Annette Lawlor


The founder of Lion People Global, Annette Lawlor is a localization recruitment expert on a mission to make a real difference in this exciting industry. By building lasting relationships with clients, and expanding and diversifying Lion People’s service offering, Annette aims to overcome talent shortages and progress the careers of all the great localization professionals in her network.

Not always a recruitment legend, Annette studied marketing in Dublin and put her sales skills to the test before discovering a passion and talent for recruitment. After only seven years as an IT and technical talent manager (agency and client-side) Annette founded Synergy Recruit in 2005. In 2013 she identified a growing need for an agency dedicated to the unique requirements of the localization industry. Lion People Global was born, and the rest is history.

With a sharp eye on the localization industry, Annette is currently focused on ways to make it more visible and attractive to those outside it. And to bridge the gap between university programs and business requirements. And if this isn’t enough, alongside raising a young family, you might find her letting off steam with some hot yoga or enjoying a Saturday brunch.
