Principal, Hadrian Executive Search

Edward Stanworth is Senior Fellow, Human Capital at The Conference Board and Principal of Hadrian Executive Search. Previously, he was Sr Partner of the Global Leader Talent Search practice and a member of the Advisory Council.

Before joining Global Leader, Edward held various HR executive roles with Bridgestone Americas, Halliburton, and Pepsi Bottling Group. He has a demonstrated track record of designing and implementing successful HR solutions to address complex business issues. Moreover, he has built out global teams to be more strategic and that enable the business to deliver stronger bottom-line performance.

As a practitioner, he’s seen the criticality of leadership and how a new leader can energize a division, transform a function, or provide crucial strategic reorientation. He has led searches across the Americas, Europe, and Africa--from the Board and C-suite level to other critical roles deep into the organization. Edward is passionate about safeguarding the client’s brand throughout the search process and providing an exceptional candidate experience.

He has been an active member of both West Virginia University’s MSHRM Advisory Board and Brigham Young University’s OBHR Advisory Council and has been a featured speaker at many universities and non-profit organizations. Recently, he has been actively involved with the Urban League of Middle Tennessee—establishing and leading a mentoring program with the UL’s Young Professionals—pairing seasoned leaders with the UL’s emerging professionals.
