June 23, 2014 – Executive search firm Stanton Chase International has named Janne Moltke-Leth, a partner in its Copenhagen office, as its global diversity lead. Ms Moltke-Leth joined Stanton Chase in 2013 and has conducted searches in the commercial sector with a special focus on FMCG, transportation services and the design and lifestyle businesses. The Copenhagen office of Stanton Chase has created the Women’s Board Award, a program to facilitate and frame a constructive debate within the field. “There’s no question that seeking candidates with diverse backgrounds is simply good business,” said Ms. Moltke-Leth. “For businesses to succeed they must be open to opinions and strategies that can be gained by having senior-level executives from backgrounds that reflect an understanding of different ethnic, gender, cultural backgrounds. As the challenges of managing businesses in a global economy increases, this orientation will become more important.” Stanton Chase has 70 offices in 46 countries, offering services in Asia/Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Latin America and North America.
