Stanton Chase Expands Global Supply Chain, Logistics & Transportation Group

As its global presence increases, Stanton Chase continues to fortify its Supply Chain, Logistics & Transportation Practice Group.
 
With offices in major hubs throughout the world, this Stanton Chase practice group has created a network of search professionals who are working together to identify candidates for this sophisticated and important industry. Stanton Chase has more than 70 offices in 45 countries.
 
“We have assembled industry leaders who understand the ever-increasing importance of getting products to markets quickly and efficiently,” said Juan D. Morales, Global Practice Leader for the firm’s Supply Chain, Logistics & Transportation Practice Group. “Today, the work requires an understanding of inter-modal transportation, technology, international currencies, risks of terrorism, and much more. We continue to be well positioned to serve our clients in this sector.”
With offices and sector leaders in Miami, Athens, Atlanta, Copenhagen, Dubai, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Santiago, Toronto, and Zurich, the practice group has a presence in major hubs serving the world.
