Stanton Chase Managing Director Edward Savage is pleased to announce that Sadovnick Partners’ CEO Mark Sadovnick along with Stanton Chase Director Peter Deragon have acquired an equity interest in the Los Angeles office, and they will together form the new leadership team, offering executive search nationally and globally in the Los Angeles and Southern California marketplace.

“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Mark and Pete to the Los Angeles team”, said Savage, “As we continue to grow the firm’s footprint across Southern California, their combined expertise enables us to further enhance our already comprehensive service offering to our clients as they seek the top talent from around the world.”

Sadovnick was enthusiastic. “The opportunity of Global Reach, Regional Knowledge and Local Insight, was the differentiator in partnering with Pete and Ed. The innovative mindset and experience this partnership offers, along with the discussions already underway with successful players in search and business, will allow us to continue to make a difference for management of our clients, as well as the individual candidates.”

“Ed and I have collaborated on many searches,” said Deragon. “And Mark and I share an innovative strategy which we see is already exciting search and business professionals to join us. This will benefit our clients in attracting the “right fit” talent, and support their businesses in many other ways, in Southern California and throughout the world.”

In a joint statement, Mark and Pete said “Ed provides the leadership of experience, long standing relationships and consistent growth. Our partnership over the next years will contribute an invaluable foundation upon which we can together assist and contribute value to our clients now and in the future.”

Ed Savage demonstrated his vision as the co-Founder and former US Chairman of Stanton Chase International, successfully serving clients in many industries as Managing Partner of the HQ office in Los Angeles and a Global Practice Leader, engaged in hundreds of executive and Board searches globally.

Peter Deragon is a seasoned search professional with over 30 years’ experience in the investment and financial services industries, earning the role of North American Financial Services Industry Practice Leader, and has also conducted key searches for clients in the Supply Chain, Logistics and Transportation sector.
