Driving change through executive search and leadership consulting in the social impact sector

We’ve been connecting exceptional leaders with government, education, and nonprofit organizations since 1990. Our firm transcends the boundaries of a standard leadership consulting and executive search firm. Our reach (and impact) is local, national, and global.  

We know that our clients are striving to make a positive impact on the world, and we are honored to support them in this important work. From technology to globalization, dynamic forces are driving significant change in nonprofit, education, and government organizations. Our executive search consultants excel at navigating the intricate relationship between the public and private sectors.  

We provide tailored solutions, market insights, and unparalleled access to changemakers around the world. Through our exclusive Search+™ executive search process, we go deeper to identify exceptional and rare individuals who deliver on results promised.

Stanton Chase’s Search+™ revolutionizes the executive search process by offering a personalized, partner-led approach. It ensures reduced bias, objectivity, and transparency throughout the process. 

Our executive search and leadership consulting services prioritize collaboration, ensuring that your mission and vision are respected and upheld. Our entire consultation and recruitment process revolves around you.  

Whether you require assistance with executive search, succession planning, or executive or board assessment, we are here to empower you to deliver on your organization’s mission. 

Uncovering Leaders to Drive Positive Change with Nonprofit Executive Search and Leadership Services 

Stanton Chase’s highly specialized nonprofit sector revolves around passion, mission, and community. For mission-driven organizations, it is crucial for leaders to be deeply devoted to their cause, armed with game-changing management skills and comprehensive functional expertise.  

Nonprofit executives must have strong leadership skills to manage teams, develop and implement strategic plans, and measure outcomes. Leaders need to be able to adapt to changing trends and challenges, such as digital transformation and demographic shifts.  

Our team stands out from other nonprofit executive search firms and leadership consultancies. We understand the unique nature of the sector and the crucial role of nonprofit leaders. We understand the challenges of individual communities while being able to provide a global pool of exceptional talent.  

Our recruitment process ensures that we identify nonprofit leaders who are aligned with your cause, invested in your strategy, share your values and have the skills and experience required to take your organization to new heights. 

Invest in the Future with Education Executive Recruitment and Leadership Consulting 

Educational institutions are responsible for producing the next generation of visionaries, changemakers, strategic leaders, and experts. That is why they need innovative leaders of their own: to guide and mentor the leaders of tomorrow.  

Our education executive search and leadership consultants know what it takes to find and develop leaders who are passionate about academia and committed to boosting international reputations and technological advancements, both in and out of the classroom.  

We have represented leading education organizations worldwide. The majority of our education executive search and leadership consultants have served as trustees for their alma maters. This provides them with personal experience in leadership and education.  

Our global footprint and integrated methodology have yielded extraordinary results and tremendous success for our education clients in accessing, recruiting, and developing top talent internationally. 

Sowing the Seeds of Change Through Government Executive Search and Leadership Services 

Local, regional, and national government has immense power to shape the lives of citizens. In order to achieve the intended impact, ethical, dedicated, and skilled leaders are essential. Our government executive search and leadership consulting services are designed to help you find or develop great leaders. 

Senior leaders across all branches of government are currently required to rethink policies, improve services, and collaborate with the private sector. This necessitates a radical shift in how they engage with employees and stakeholders.  

Our team of executive search and leadership consultants specializes in finding government leaders who can balance competing interests, navigate bureaucratic processes and regulations, and address public expectations and demands.  

We specialize in identifying and attracting international and private-sector executives who are eager to make a difference. Whether you’re a government client or an advocacy organization seeking leadership talent, we provide our clients with effective and unparalleled counsel and guidance on best practices.  

Our Commitment to DE&I 

At Stanton Chase, we firmly believe that embracing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is not just a moral imperative, but also a strategic advantage.  

We view candidates as individuals with unique experiences and backgrounds. In building our candidate pipelines for each assignment, we prioritize diversity and adhere to principles of non-discrimination, merit-based selection, and respect for all individuals. 

Our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging is evident throughout every stage of the executive search process, from our proposal and pitch presentations to our candidate interviews.  

Our structured evaluation process ensures that all candidates, regardless of background, are interviewed in the same way, using the same criteria and the same metric for success. 

By championing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, we not only build stronger teams but also contribute to a more inclusive and equitable society. Read our DEI policy here.
