“Some say that people are born leaders but we think that leadership doesn’t come naturally to everyone, with Tony and Stanger Pro’s support we aim to flip that misconception on its head and help both our clients and our business lead with intent.

“Executive search by its nature is a fast paced and often fraught environment. With Tony’s level head, years of coaching executives and considered approach, we aim to raise both ours and our clients’ levels of performance.”
