Daniel Casteel, Managing Partner at Stanton Chase Nashville, has been appointed as Stanton Chase’s new Global CEO Leader.

Modern CEOs face numerous obstacles, including digital transformation, supply chain challenges, global economic uncertainty, inflation, and emerging cybersecurity threats. The Global CEO Functional Sector aims to assist companies in identifying future-ready CEOs and preparing existing talent for long-term success.

As a seasoned global executive and founder of Stanton Chase’s Nashville office, Daniel possesses vast experience in advising organizations across various industries, from Fortune 500 companies to family-owned businesses, middle market firms, and private equity groups.

“I feel incredibly humbled and grateful to have been chosen as Stanton Chase’s Global CEO Leader. I am thrilled at the prospect of contributing to the growth and success of our executive search and leadership advisory services in this sector. With a talented and dedicated team behind me, I am confident that we can achieve great things and continue to deliver outstanding results for our clients. I am genuinely excited about the possibilities ahead and look forward to working together to uncover exceptional leaders who can help our clients achieve their business aspirations.” — Daniel Casteel

Richard Kim, Director at Stanton Chase Houston, will spearhead Stanton Chase’s Natural Resources, Energy, and Mining Global Practice Group.

Boasting over 20 years of experience in executive search and leadership advisory, Richard’s expertise will be instrumental in addressing the sector’s unique challenges. These challenges include restructuring supply chains, heightened regulations, the need for ESG-compliant and sustainable business practices, political instability, and market volatility.

Prior to joining Stanton Chase, Richard served as the Lead Energy Partner at another leading executive search firm.

“I am excited about the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world by assisting natural resources, energy, and mining companies in finding and cultivating leaders who are committed to creating a sustainable and prosperous future for all of us. With the help of my exceptional team of leadership consultants, who are experts in their respective fields, we will work tirelessly to identify and develop leaders who can drive explosive business growth while protecting our environment, workforce, and communities. I am thrilled to embark on this journey and look forward to making a meaningful difference.” — Richard Kim

Under the leadership of Richard and Daniel, Stanton Chase is confident in the continued growth and success of its CEO and Natural Resources, Energy, and Mining Global Sectors.

I would also like to extend my gratitude to Christine Fisher who previously led our natural resources, mining, and energy sector. Her expertise and unwavering dedication elevated the sector to new heights.”
