About Stanton Chase

Established in 1990, Stanton Chase is one of the leading global executive search firms. We operate through focused practice groups, each led by a global practice team leader. We are everywhere in the world our clients need us to be, so we can offer both global perspective and local insight.

A unique structure and culture

Stanton Chase has developed a unique business structure and model that empowers its partners to provide outstanding service to our clients. Our partners are owners of their respective branches; this ensures our culture is entrepreneurial, sensitive to local markets and able to react quickly to our clients’ needs.

Our greatest asset is our people

We believe that each of our consultants needs a sense of dignity, pride and satisfaction in what they do. Meeting client expectations depends on the united efforts of our expert consultants, treating candidates with professional respect and working in partnership with all stakeholders.

Deep knowledge of our clients’ business

Our customer satisfaction research has asserted that a first-class executive search firm must have thorough knowledge of the client’s business, markets and culture. All this is critical in finding and recommending the right person for the right position. Each assignment is therefore the personal responsibility of one of our partners who oversees the search from brief to completion.

Action and reaction – the keys to our success

We strive to have the finest listening skills in the world of executive search. This is necessary in order to identify the true needs of each of our clients. We listen carefully, react quickly and offer solid advice. This is the key to our success and earns us partnership status in the eyes of our clients..
