Barbara Stafford New Vice President of Human Resources

Los Angeles, CA – Stanton Chase Los Angeles is pleased to announce the placement of Barbara Stafford as Vice President of Human Resources at Best Formulations, a diversified nutraceutical and pharmaceutical company.

“Barbara’s depth of experience will help to further build an outstanding culture to attract and retain great talent, adding a strategic approach that will make a significant impact with leadership practices, insight, and maturity with the executive team,” said Bill Brewer, Director at Stanton Chase Los Angeles and co-leader of the search, alongside Ed Savage, Managing Director.

As a member of the senior management team, Stafford is responsible for providing leadership in driving excellence in human resources initiatives that support the company’s strategic growth plans. She oversees the design, implementation, and management of the human resources strategy and programs in the areas of policy/practices, compensation, benefits, recruitment, orientation, corporate wellness, training and development, labor relations, employee relations, performance management, organizational development, corporate culture, compliance, HR systems, and enterprise risk management.

“I’m extremely happy with our decision to bring Barbara on board as part of the executive team,” said Jeff Goh, President of Best Formulations. “We are restructuring the organization and preparing ourselves for long-term growth in a competitive market. Barbara brings to the table not only 17 years of HR expertise but a fresh, strategic mindset that complements the rest of the team. We worked very closely with the Stanton Chase team on this search, and as usual, they delivered great results.”

Most recently, Stafford held the top HR role for A-Z Bus Sales, a transportation dealer-distributor serving the education, government, public sector, commercial and private fleet markets with a broad portfolio of bus and fire apparatus solutions. Prior to her 15 years at A-Z Bus Sales, Stafford served in HR roles at Valley Precision/Hewlett Packard and Battery World, Inc.

Stafford earned her Bachelor of Science degree with a specialization in Human Resource Management from Capella University and has been a member of the Vistage CEO Group and a District Chair of the Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA) in Riverside.
