The rise of digital and social media and unprecedented transparency have changed the rules of business communication and expanded the scope and influence of the communications officer. Spencer Stuart’s deep knowledge of the communications function provides a powerful edge for clients in search of the most talented and capable executives.

  • With more than 25 years of hands-on experience in corporate communications, journalism and investor relations at some of the world’s most prominent companies, our consultants have deep knowledge of the function and long-standing relationships with top talent.
  • Our functional knowledge is supported by a global database of nearly 70,000 senior corporate communications executives working across a broad spectrum of industries and nonprofit sectors.
  • We stay on top of the issues that are important to corporate communication officers and their management teams through events and thought leadership, including our annual survey of global chief communications officers.
