Stanton Chase Welcomes Selker Search Team
Veteran Software Executives Strengthen Firm
Stanton Chase is pleased to announce the integration of Selker Search, bringing two new Directors to the global firm, Greg Selker and Julie Davidson — both veterans in retained executive search in the technology sector. Based in Baltimore, Selker will lead the firm’s Software sector in North America. With this move, Stanton Chase is embarking on an aggressive plan to grow and develop the Software practice in North America. The announcement was made by Mickey Matthews, Stanton Chase International Chairman.
“I am delighted that Selker Search has joined Stanton Chase,” remarked Matthews. “Greg and Julie bring a deep understanding of software as well as a thoroughness and intellectual rigor to the search process. This substantially contributes to our expansion plans and growth of our Software sector. Selker will be a key asset to the entire global team.”
Greg Selker has been conducting retained executive searches for 29-plus years in technology. He has personally completed more than 300 executive searches over his career including 45 CEO searches and numerous CRO, CMO, CHRO, and CFO searches. He has also conducted leadership development sessions with more than 50 executives from leading companies, moving into executive coaching relationships with seven executives spanning CEOs, CIOs, and CFOs.
Julie Davidson has spent 20-plus years in retained search — primarily in her own firm as a consultant to many of retained search’s premier partners. She and Greg joined forces after discovering a shared belief in applying a rigorous data-analytic approach to deliver the highest caliber and most diverse candidates to their clients.
Jan-Bart Smits, Stanton Chase Global Practice Leader for Technology, also commented, “Greg’s keen grasp of the technology sector, including enterprise software, SaaS, data analytics, AI/ML, martech/adtech, cybersecurity, and cloud/IT infrastructure, will undoubtedly strengthen our team and the North American market in particular.”
A former partner at one of the leading multinational executive search firms (CT Partners), Selker played a key role in driving the company’s growth and developing it into a major, international executive search firm. After years of extensive experience, both in building his own firm and in key roles with other firms heading their Technology and Private Equity practices, Greg Selker comes to Stanton Chase with a long track record of delivering leaders who successfully transform their organizations.
