In leadership, as in politics, it’s all about the right candidate. We’ll help you find them.

At Stanton Chase, we understand the complexities and challenges government bodies face. Balancing budgets and breaking down funding silos are just the tip of the iceberg. Governments must also lead the charge in social responsibility and sustainability, often pioneering new practices and policies in the face of economic and political pressures.  

Yet within these challenges lie opportunities ripe for the taking. However, to drive positive change, the right leadership is crucial. Ideal candidates must possess the appropriate experience, strong ethical principles, and demonstrate integrity in decision-making. They should also exhibit resilience in crisis management and be capable of adapting to technological advancements and evolving public expectations. 

We are committed to finding these leaders for you. Our government executive recruitment process is designed to identify candidates driven by a desire for public service, rather than personal gain.  

With Stanton Chase, you’re not just teaming up with a top government executive search firm, but gaining a partner committed to your mission and vision. Our consultants will provide unmatched support and introduce you to our renowned white-glove service. 

With over 70 offices in more than 45 countries, we offer global insights into governmental trends and expectations. But our roots are local. We are well-acquainted with your local government landscape and the needs of your constituents.  

Upon successful placement, our partnership continues. We support the integration of your new leader and help drive the success they were appointed to achieve.  

We have extensive experience in recruiting government leaders across various subsectors, including: 

  • National, federal, state, provincial, municipal, and local government entities 
  • Emergency management and public safety agencies 
  • Economic and community development organizations 
  • Public works and utilities 
  • Congress and parliament-organized corporations (e.g., Reserve banks)
