If you are a CEO, COO, CFO or CHRO of a renewable energy firm, you already know that change is the only constant in your industry. Change requires leadership that is agile and flexible as well as technically competent. Your choice of energy-focused executive recruiting service can prove critical in bringing clarity to your job requirements and acquiring the talent you need to continue competitive growth. There is good news though. Deloitte identified three favorable trends that will likely shape renewable growth. Those trends include emerging policies that support renewable growth, expanding investor interest in the sector, and advancing technologies that boost wind and solar energy’s value to the grid, asset owners, and customers. To ensure you have the talent to take advantage of these trends, you need to contact the professional energy executive recruiters at The Energists.
A Canadian company formed a business unit to market turnkey renewable energy systems to commercial, residential, and government sectors, contacted The Energists in search of a Vice President of Operations. The position is responsible for developing a global strategy and oversees product development, marketing, sales, and procurement. The position is considered key to the successful launch of the new unit.
After meeting with the client and analyzing the requirements which included an advanced degree in an appropriate science or engineering discipline and over a decade in a related senior leadership role, our Renewable Energy consultant began a search of our network. Within 60 days, we had identified 2 candidates, had face to face interviews, completed comprehensive backgrounds, and arranged client interviews. The client made an offer to one of the candidates and The Energists completed the recruiting effort and assisted in the candidate’s resignation and onboarding process.
With the key leadership position filled by motivated, qualified talent, the renewable energy system business unit was able to launch on time furthering the company’s strategic objectives.
