Stanton Chase, a global retained executive search firm, has opened an office in Detroit to serve its growing list of corporate clients in the manufacturing, automotive, commercial vehicle, and defense industries.
The announcement was made by Daniel Casteel, Regional Vice President, North America for Stanton Chase, which has 73 offices in 45 countries. Rich Kolpasky, a veteran search consultant and former senior executive in the automotive sector, will head up the office as the managing director.
“It is a distinct pleasure to welcome Rich to the Stanton Chase family,” said Casteel. “With the opening of this office, Stanton Chase becomes one of the few global retained search firms with an office in the area.
