Four experienced Stanton Chase executives have stepped up to lead the Stanton Chase India team, bringing young dynamism and ensuring continuity in the region.
Amit Agarwal, Ashwini Prakash, Mala Chawla, and Sripad KN, Partners of Stanton Chase, have stepped up to lead Stanton Chase in India; they share ownership and leadership responsibilities across the country. The team reflects the fundamental principles of the firm: global values, local understanding, and a strong client-first mentality. The four experienced executives play a hands-on role in searches, finding the top talent and best fit for clients. Their experience with the firm revitalizes the Stanton Chase operating model in India.
Collectively, the four partners bring almost 60 years of executive search experience to the firm and to their valued clients. Their Pan-India, multi-sector experience connects their extensive networks on local, regional, and global levels. With their longtime involvement at Stanton Chase, they possess an in-depth understanding of the vision, mission, and ethos at the firm.
“This change speaks to our principles and values of Senior Partners and Consultants having a distributed ownership model with a client-first service excellence mentality. It is locally entrepreneurial, globally connected, and inclusively forward thinking,” said Mickey Matthews, International Chairman of Stanton Chase. “Moreover, they are family and know our culture, share our values, and have the young dynamism to build and grow their client offering both in India, and globally through their deep relationships with Stanton Chase partners around the world.
Under the new leadership, the Stanton Chase India team remains committed to serving clients across the country with connectivity through their partners around the world. Stanton Chase currently has six offices in India, including Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Delhi, and Ahmedabad. The four leaders cover all 9 industry specializations at Stanton Chase: Professional Services, Financial Services, Supply Chain Logistics & Transportation, Consumer Products & Services, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Industrial, Natural Resources & Energy, Technology, and Government. Given the breadth of their search experience and deep relationships in Stanton Chase, the team is executing a smooth and seamless transition to ensure continued excellence in client service delivery. Together, they have developed a strategy for growth into other major commercial hubs across the country.
Mickey Matthews underscored the importance of the new leadership. “Stanton Chase has always had a strong presence in India,” Mickey said. “I am pleased to see the new direction this team is heading. They are building a world-class team with a deep understanding of the firm’s culture and commitment to clients first.”
The new India leadership team is open for business.
