"The bespoke approach to the art of finding world-class Administrative, Investor Relations, Legal/Compliance and HR support."


the team

Founded by Chantal “Taly” Russell, the notable industry veteran who brings the highly prestigious personal network of clients that are SilverChair’s elite core, our collective senior recruitment team boasts 57 years of collective experience. We believe that with the right leverage/support, an individual’s productivity is dramatically enhanced by an average of 30-40% EACH day. Our team based approach is the reason that each and every SCP search is handled by a team of two senior recruiters from start to finish. Thus each step of the search is always well thought out and strategized to maximize optimal results for both client and candidate.

We accept only a limited number of engagements to ensure that our private and corporate clients enjoy access, responsiveness, and service consistent with the highest standards of our profession.

Our thorough and diligent approach to the placement process distinguishes us from our peers and enables SilverChair Partners to set new standards in search. Our relationships with clients and candidates are based on our commitment to sterling ethical standards in all relationships, constant collaboration and overarching excellence.

the team

Our approach is collaborative, with an emphasis on knowledge sharing, chemistry and collective accountability. We pride ourselves on our decade long reputation as the leaders in identifying and connecting the top leaders of industry with their key support teams.

SilverChair Partners works on all searches as a team relying heavily on our networks and research based approach. Our retained partnership approach to search has led to ongoing partnerships with the most select, top tier clientele in NY. SCP candidates are hand-picked and by invitation only. These select candidates must meet all Level A Silver requirements in order to be considered for client introduction. Industry leaders partner with SCP to gain access to this most sought after and unique candidate pool in the US.

The SilverChair team additionally handles all logistical details, including compensation guidance, interview scheduling, candidate follow-up, and competitive offer guidance to successful completion.


SilverChair Partners is the first search firm of its kind to only accept candidates that meet a specialized set tier of criteria. Our searches and clients are private. Only established SCP candidates who have already met our specific set of criteria with an approved background check are considered for any of our confidential mandates.


Our clients are among the most select and prestigious in the world. We are proud to partner with financial, media, business and technology firms that range from highly lauded start-ups to multi-billion dollar global corporations.
