Kanu Rajguru, a veteran of the executive search and leadership assessment industry, recently joined the ranks of Stanton Chase Dubai as a Partner, specializing in Banking and Financial Services supporting our clients across the Middle East. 

Kanu Rajguru’s journey in the executive search and recruitment industry has been nothing short of impressive. His career, spanning 27 years and involving hiring in over 35 countries, has also allowed him to work with some of the biggest names in banking and finance. But what really sets Kanu apart is his ability to not just understand the industry, but to live and breathe it daily. He’s someone who has worked shoulder to shoulder with leaders in the field to tackle some of their toughest challenges head-on. And now, as he steps into his new role at Stanton Chase Dubai, he’s bringing all of that wisdom and expertise to bear for his clients.

Over the past 17 years, Kanu has worked hand in hand with a diverse range of banks and financial institutions throughout the MENA region, from global giants to regional players and boutique firms. This hands-on approach has given him a strong grasp of the challenges and opportunities within the banking and financial services landscape, especially as these pertain to the diverse Middle Eastern markets.

Wassim Karkabi, the Managing Partner at Stanton Chase Dubai, expressed his enthusiasm about the new addition to his team. “We’re thrilled to have Kanu join us as a Partner,” he said. “His track record speaks for itself, and we know our clients in the banking and financial services sectors are going to be lining up to work with him. Kanu’s global outlook and understanding of leadership advisory services are going to be a game-changer for us, and we can’t wait to see the impact he’ll have on our business and the value he’ll bring to our clients across the Gulf region.”


But joining Stanton Chase is just the latest chapter in Kanu’s storied career. Before making the move, he held top positions at several leading global executive search and leadership advisory firms, where he played a key role in growing their banking and financial services practices across the MENA region. And even before that, Kanu cut his teeth in the industry by setting up and leading the executive search arm of one of the fastest-growing recruitment companies in the UK.

With Kanu on the team, Stanton Chase Dubai is better positioned than ever to deliver the world-leading executive search and leadership consulting services that have become their hallmark. And with his expertise in the banking and financial services sectors, Kanu is poised to take the firm’s “global reach, local insights” motto to a new level.
