Pilar Brogeras, Director of Stanton Chase Mexico City office, has been honored with the AESC Future of the Profession Award.
The impressive honor underscores the outstanding ambitions of both Pilar and the entire Stanton Chase team. “We are incredibly proud of this merited distinction,” said Mickey Matthews, International Chairman. “Pilar’s work exemplifies the true nature of Stanton Chase values and spirit as we look toward the future of executive search. She has gone above and beyond in her successes, and she is truly deserving of this recognition for all her contributions to the profession.”
The nomination was made by Matthews, who presented the award to Brogeras at the AESC Global Conference in New York on March 29, 2017.
The Future of the Profession award is “designed to engage the next generation of leaders in executive search and leadership consulting.” It recognizes a search consultant who has made a material impact on the executive search profession and their firm, specifically through creativity, innovation, leadership, and strategic direction. Nominees must have at least seven years in the profession.
Pilar has been with Stanton Chase for 9 years, working her way from Research Associate to Director in the Mexico City office. In 2015, Stanton Chase completed a company-wide global strategy exercise with an outside management strategy consultant. Pilar stepped up to make a significant contribution to Stanton Chase’s focus on Talent Acquisition and Development, and played a significant role in the successful implementation of this strategy.
Matthews further highlighted the importance of her contributions, “In addition to her other accomplishments, Pilar created a compelling recruitment video that speaks to Stanton Chase’s values, culture and team; this is one example of innovation and her creativity to get the message communicated positively to the market.”
Pilar also developed the Young Professionals Team, positioning herself as a positive role model within Stanton Chase. She later passed this leadership role to another Consultant, encouraging professional development, successful mentoring, and ensuring positive succession planning at Stanton Chase. Pilar’s efforts in targeted outreach and generation strategies have also increased Diversity representation in Stanton Chase Consultant ranks from 24% to 35%.
Prior to joining Stanton Chase in 2008, Pilar worked at GCI Group (now Cohn & Wolf), and later at Acciones y Valores Banamex, Casa de Bolsa (Citigroup) in the Strategic Planning and Marketing area. Pilar has a degree in Communications from Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico) and Master in Business Administration from Universidad Anáhuac (Mexico). She attained a Master in International Leadership by EADA, Escuela de Alta Dirección y Administración (Spain) and a Diploma in Human Resources Management from Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico). She was trained by CEB Talent Assessment in personality assessments that exclusively focused on the workplace. Pilar holds a Certificate from Cornell University in Executive Search and Leadership Consulting through the AESC.
