We’ll help you solve the equation for finding world-class education executives

We are firm believers in the transformative power of education. It fuels our passion for this specialized field of executive search. 

When it comes to the education sector, ordinary executives simply won’t cut it. What your organization needs are strong leaders, capable of adapting to the ever-evolving landscape of education, embracing advancements in technology, innovative teaching methodologies, and the shifting needs of students.  

We understand that exceptional education executives are those who seamlessly integrate digital tools into the curriculum, avail necessary resources and support, and foster positive relationships with students, parents, families, and the community. Leaders who actively involve stakeholders in decision-making, understand diverse learning needs, and champion personalized learning approaches. 

Staying abreast with the latest research, pedagogical strategies, and educational trends is of paramount importance, too. We, therefore, focus our search on education leaders who prioritize their own professional growth as well as the continuous development of their staff. 

Education executive search is a precise science at Stanton Chase, and we have it down to an art. We have been placing top education executives at leading educational institutions for more than 30 years. We know exactly what to look for. 

Throughout our search process, you maintain complete control. We uphold absolute transparency, openness, and honesty, treating your potential leadership candidates with utmost respect and dignity, as we represent your brand. 

We regularly recruit for high-level roles such as CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CHROs, CIOs, CTOs, CSOs, board members, vice presidents, and other C-level executives for education companies, spanning subsectors such as:  

  • Higher education institutions 
  • Education management and support services 
  • Educational products and educational publishing organizations 
  • Education consulting, research, and investment services 
  • Education technology (EdTech) and digital education services 
  • Education policy organizations
