December 12, 2019 – Baltimore, MD-headquartered Stanton Chase has continued its recent expansion with the addition of veteran HR executive Bill Brewer as the firm’s human resources practice leader in North America and a director in its Los Angeles office.
As the regional HR specialization leader, Mr. Brewer consults with boards and CEOs on assessing and acquiring best-in-class human resources officers. He leads senior-level human resources searches including chief human resources officers, as well as other senior human capital and talent management leadership roles.
“I am very excited to further expand the human resources functional specialty group in North America,” said Mr. Brewer. “The HR practice group has seen excellent growth, both globally as well as in North America, over the last few years. There is a demand for HR leaders who are experienced, pragmatic, and business-minded experts. Our team is dedicated to helping our clients find and select HR executives with strong business acumen.”
In both his executive search career and corporate career, Mr. Brewer has been focused on working with top talent. Prior to moving into executive search, he spent 25 years in corporate human resources and served in the top HR role for one publicly held and two privately held companies, organizations with 3,000 to 20,000 employees. His background includes well-branded companies such as The Walt Disney Company, Alorica (chief people/talent officer), Fluor Corporation, Insight Health Corp. (chief human resources officer), and Epicor Software (chief people officer).
