Stanton Chase announces the opening of a new office in Perth, Western Australia, led by Directors Tony Taylor and Greg Preston.

The expansion of Stanton Chase into the Western Australian market represents an important step in the organic and strategic business growth in the Asia-Pacific region.  It is well known that Australia has an economy characterized by a strong domestic market on the East coast, dominated by financial services, education, life sciences and FMCG based manufacturing; the Western third of the continent is dominated by strong outward-facing export industries such as agriculture, fisheries and critically, natural resources and energy.

“The firm’s expansion into Western Australia will allow better service for our existing client base in Australia, while offering our global clients in the mining and hydrocarbons business a more complete service through the acquisition of significant expertise in these business segments,” commented Fiona Lavan, Managing Director of Stanton Chase in Australia.

The Directors of the Perth office, Greg Preston and Tony Taylor, bring a combined 55 years of executive search and business experience in the industries most relevant to the region.

“I am thrilled to join the Stanton Chase team and have this opportunity to expand into West Australia,” said Preston. “I have already developed strong collaborations with other members of the firm’s international team, and I look forward to the productive years to come.”

Tony Taylor also noted, “I am excited about the great opportunities ahead. Stanton Chase is truly a world-class search firm, and it is now better positioned with our new Perth office, for both local and international searches in the industry.”
