Susan Gordon

Based in Nashville, Susan is a career executive search professional with experience in the industrial, automotive, consumer, and financial services sectors. Her passion lies in connecting superior companies with superior senior leaders. She attributes her success to embedding herself in her clients’ businesses and pairing their needs to the proven successes and aspirations of the candidate.

Susan was “raised” in retained executive search. She began her career in the world’s first search firm, where she built a solid foundation in the art and science of executive search. With her roots firmly planted in executive search, Susan’s corporate expertise makes her an invaluable partner to her clients. Prior to joining Stanton Chase, Susan managed the leadership recruiting team with a major consumer insurance company.  She also recruited inside a consumer entertainment organization as well as a privately held industrial distribution firm.

Understanding company culture and finding the best cultural fit for a new leader’s success is where Susan shines.  She has conducted searches in all types of company environments, ranging from very traditional and conservative Fortune 100 organizations to emerging start-ups.  Susan has successfully uncovered complex cultural characteristics – particularly in cultures that are evolving as a company grows or changes – and introduced professionals whose career values match those of the client’s vision.

Susan received her MBA and bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University.  She has lived in New York, Chicago, and London but is proud to now call Nashville home.
