Our Process

Our mission is to help clients identify, qualify and attract exceptional energy leaders and critical talent who make a significant, and truly positive impact on corporate performance and shareholder value.

We accomplish this through our milestone-driven search process which is under constant leadership of one of our proven consultants. Our consultant’s experience with similar engagements, industry knowledge and understanding of candidate career cycles have allowed us to achieve the highest success rate in the industry.

Furthermore, we pride ourselves on the collaboration of our consultants. Our consultants are compensated with a bonus program that rewards collective performance. Therefore, with us, you get the total knowledge of the whole firm.

The true cost of a bad executive hire puts the search for energy leaders into clearer perspective. That is why our executive search methodology—together with our proven search consultants, broad industry network, extensive engagement history and commitment to ethical practices and consistent results—has proven valuable and ensures our clients’ success.
