Our Story

Our story is marked by courageous entrepreneurs making bold choices

It began in 1990 with a small international group of friends. Each of them operated their own executive search firm. They wanted to give forward-looking companies a new way to find exceptional leaders.

They weren’t happy with the “standard” practices of the day. Clients felt uncertain and anxious rather than supported and empowered.They could face questions like: who is my point of contact? Will they update me on how the search is going? Can I trust them to find the right person?

Partnering with an executive search team should remove stress; not increase it. And so, these entrepreneurs joined forces and created Stanton Chase — a global executive search firm focused on building partnerships with pioneering companies. This committed family of experts wrote into our DNA the rules that would set us apart.
