Logan Stanton is currently President and Co-Founder of Center of Mass LLC, a professional services firm providing strategic consulting and developing strategies to tackle today’s challenges.
The firm provides organizations and individuals with a targeted plan focused on developing the tools and networks needed to succeed in today's global economy. Center of Mass LLC engages organizations that have an international footprint or a global mission.
For nearly seven years (2005 to 2012), Stanton served as Head of North America for the World Economic Forum. He was charged with the engagement of governments from North America (Canada, USA and CARICOM) in various Forum policy initiatives. He managed a team responsible for integrating the industry, regional and global agendas from a North American perspective, into the myriad of interactions facilitated by the World Economic Forum. Particularly, through engagement in the Forum’s Annual Meetings and Regional Summits, by targeting select senior government officials and proposing substantive individual agendas to drive the engagement. This was accomplished through developing an extensive global network, and continuously assessing the political and economic landscape. The space where his team operated was at the intersection of business, government and civil society. Throughout this time, Logan both strengthened his global perspectives and developed greater regional understandings (particularly with respect to the US in the Middle East, Asia and Africa).
Previously, Stanton served in the United States Army (1996 to 2004). After 9/11, he was a Captain in the Special Operations Command (3/75 RGR) and in combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan (2003 and 2004, respectively). He planned and carried out time sensitive combat missions in both countries, for which he was awarded a Joint Service Commendation Medal.
Stanton has an MPA from Harvard University’s Kennedy School, with concentrations in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution, and a master's degree in Global Leadership from the World Economic Forum. He was a Founding Editor and, from 2005 to 2009, on the editorial board of the School’s Korea Policy Review. He received a B.S. in Political Science and International Relations from the University of Utah.
Stanton has traveled extensively in Asia, Europe and the Middle East and North Africa, speaks French and is married to Sandrine Perrollaz of Annemasse, France.
