Stanton Chase is unique in the executive search industry, offering clients the expertise and global reach of one of the world’s ten largest search firms complemented by the service, expertise, and personal relationships usually reserved for small, boutique practices.

We develop a close and effective partnership with you to ensure we understand your organization’s strategic issues and search requirements. Our structured approach is based upon open, ongoing communication and regular delivery of both quantitative and qualitative feedback.

The core of our consultative philosophy is represented by our 14-step Best Practices Wheel, the first step of which is Talent Acquisition.

Our primary goal during this phase is to build a strong foundation for our partnership by gaining a deep understanding of your organization. In essence, we listen. Our team will speak with members of your executive management to understand your culture, discuss challenges you are facing, and learn about past successes and missteps.

What prompted you to decide that now is the time to partner with us? Is your organization performing at a standard that meets the Board’s expectations? Are you keeping pace with the industry? Has your growth plateaued? Is your past dynamic not in sync with future goals? Is there a particular function that you are struggling with? How effective are your current leaders?

By nature, all organizations are self-contained structures. The instinct to hire and promote from within is oftentimes a good one which we, as executive management consultants, embrace. However, it is only one of many strategies that can help to grow your leadership team. By getting to know your organization intimately, we can help you identify talent within your organization that may be redistributed to better meet current challenges as well as identify gaps in your executive and management teams. Together, we combine your organizational insights with our unique perspective on market realities to formulate a hiring plan.

At Stanton Chase, we are experts at change management. We understand the intricacies of cultural dynamics shifting and use our expertise to maximize these developments as opportunities for your organization to gain momentum and to spur your business forward. Working side-by-side, we mitigate the risk of change and minimize the growing pains that come with fine-tuning your leadership team.
