Executive Search and Leadership Advisory Firm in Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Stanton Chase Amsterdam Office in The Netherlands provides executive search services to client organizations in virtually every industry. We are continuously striving for optimal matches between client requirements and candidate experiences and personalities in our search assignments. We owe much of our success to our motivated team of partners and senior consultants, who genuinely enjoy what they do: providing human capital solutions. Our partners have international, longstanding experience (and quite fortunately in complementary functional disciplines) in the industries they specialize in, often combined with experience in the executive search business, prior to joining Stanton Chase. Our office has been active for more than three decades in this challenging industry and was one of the founding fathers of Stanton Chase in 1990. Our experience in assignments varies from Board Management to HR/Organizational Development, Marketing, Sales, Finance, IT, Supply Chain, R&D, QA, Engineering and Project Management to specialized positions.

We cherish our local network with international access and are proud of what we can achieve for our clients and candidates in The Netherlands and around the world. We are more than just headhunters; it is our firm belief our people’s business is based on trust, which leads to long term partnerships. This is built on hard work, experience, industry insight, and a sound network, together with solid and open teamwork, leading to timely and qualitative results: the right person in the right environment is our ultimate goal in order to achieve client satisfaction and candidate success.

The Amsterdam office of Stanton Chase is now a proud signatory of the Executive Search Code, which includes a pledge of progress and accountability in diversity, equality, and inclusion initiatives in both the workplace and work practices. The Charter Talent to the Top agreement monitors organizations’ improvements and effective results in committing to further a pro-active organization-wide diversity policy.
