If recruiting is a people business why aren't we becoming masters of how to understand people.
Corporate Boards have achieved much over the last 30 years; nonetheless, they also recognize that boardroom practices must remain flexible and dynamic to allow their corporations to survive and thrive in rapidly changing markets. Being a Board Member today is about active leadership, personal accountability and senior executive coaching.
Strong, dedicated Board members are critical for making a positive difference to the organisations on whose boards they serve. The Global Board Services Practice at Stanton Chase is about making our clients’ Boards better as a result of our interaction, and making sure that impact lasts in our absence.
Our approach is rooted in consulting. We listen closely to understand your situation and your needs. You may be inclined towards a leadership assessment, management audit, cultural review, or other focused investigation. You may also benefit from other value-added services such as market intelligence, leadership advice, competitive analysis or market benchmarking.
In a world where CVs are available everywhere on the internet, we add value and insight to the identification of singularly viable candidates. Our work is founded on a comprehensive, disciplined approach that ensures finding suitable candidates who match above and beyond your technical requirements.
Our approach enables us to respond with a rapid and deep understanding of your needs, including hands-on service by senior consultants and partners, prospect research and identification, presentation, assessment, and placement follow-up.

There is no more powerful combination -- or one more fundamental to the success of any enterprise -- than the successful partnership between a CEO and a strong, independent board that can provide oversight and serve as both advisor and strategic arsenal.
We provide a full range of CEO solutions rooted in current research and experience-based best practices. Our CEO Search and succession planning services identify the ideal profile for organizational strategy. We then assess quality candidates and benchmark them against best-in-class CEOs using proprietary research on traits that correlate with success. This allows us to identify both near-term CEOs who align with strategic objectives, and longer-term prospects for internal succession.
Critical to the success of the CEO and the organization is a board of directors with the competencies and intellectual capital to address the toughest strategic and operational challenges. We provide a full range of Board services including recruitment; evaluation and enhancement of current board competencies; effectiveness of makeup, oversight, and culture; strategic alignment; compensation benchmarking; and eventually succession. We work closely with boards to understand strategy, culture, and composition, then partner with our colleagues with deep industry expertise – including diversity, cyber, technology, and finance – to identify the ideal mix of candidates.
When built effectively and run efficiently, corporate boards are a strategic asset and a source of continuous competitive advantage. And when paired with a smart, forward-thinking CEO who communicates well, manages people and understands and facilitates corporate strategy, the combination is unstoppable.
