The Energists™ is delighted to officially, and retroactively, announce the opening of its new office in Dallas, Texas last year, marking a significant expansion to the firm’s capabilities. With the appointment of Elizabeth Linhart as Partner, The Energists fortifies its presence in the region, building upon a well-established track record that dates back to 1979.

Jon Hill, Managing Partner at The Energists, shared his enthusiasm for this 2023 addition:

“I am thrilled to establish a physical presence in Dallas, bringing the firm closer to its Midcontinent client base. Elizabeth’s addition to the team represents a substantial investment, bringing considerable experience that enhances our capability both domestically and internationally. Importantly, Elizabeth aligns with our core values of Collaboration, Inclusion, and Integrity.

This move comes at a timely moment, responding to strong post-COVID customer demand for support in achieving their human capital objectives. Collaborating with our HQ team in Houston, Elizabeth deepens our regional knowledge, strengthens relationships within the PE community, and expands the firm’s functional expertise to include General Counsel positions, all across our global client base.”

Elizabeth now leads business development efforts in the region while supporting The Energists’ existing client base there and elsewhere.

Originally from Houston, Elizabeth began her career as a lawyer in the corporate world and has spent 20 years working in Dallas. She joins The Energists from Heidrick & Struggles, where she held the role of Principal. Before that, she worked as a Principal at Korn Ferry, transitioning from the boutique space.

This move follows the expectation that the post-COVID increase in business will continue, fueled largely by energy transition, infrastructure resiliency, and energy security objectives. Ongoing and anticipated investment volumes remain significant, and The Energists continues to collaborate with companies, agencies, and other bodies across the value chain to align talent needs with organizational objectives.

While investment in, and media coverage of, new and renewable energy technologies continues to build, The Energists’ Dallas office also supports search and consulting services for our traditional energy industry clients.

Reflecting on joining The Energists, Elizabeth comments:

“The Energists has built a strong reputation within the energy domain. I am excited to return to the boutique space. It has been a whirlwind since joining last year, with several new clients and important mandates, all kicking off in the first week. I look forward to continuing to engage with both current and future clients as we consolidate our track record across infrastructure and energy markets globally, for a rich mix of both public and private sector clientele.”
