How long have you worked in renewables?

3 years

In ten words or fewer, what does your firm do?

Finding clean energy companies the talent needed to achieve objectives.

In which markets do you see the biggest opportunities at present?

After spending the last 3 years in New York supporting IPPs, Developers and OEMs, I see North America remaining a key market.

Onshore wind continues to surge, with the industry installing significant amounts of new capacity. Entering 2018, wind has become cost competitive through long-term PPAs. Support in the C&I sector is swelling and Wind Turbine Technician is projected to be the fastest growing profession in North America over the next decade.

And, as global project costs continue to drop, the US is quickly building on the momentum of its first commercial offshore wind farm and has a robust pipeline of projects in various stages of development. It should be a fascinating couple of years.

What is the biggest challenge facing wind, and how would you solve it?

From a search perspective, the biggest challenge we see in a rapidly growing and very competitive industry is an increasing skills and talent gap. In 2005, the US had just over 7GW of installed wind capacity. In 2017 we are now above 80GW and the industry regularly faces new technical, commercial and operational challenges with a shortage of professionals who possess the requisite wind energy experience.

It’s a big challenge to solve single-handedly but here at Hyperion we partner with startup developers to global OEMs and deliver tailor-made solutions to each search we’re given. By understanding our client’s culture and ethos, we can employ a methodical approach to our search, and we have the foundation on which to deal with the great, the challenging and the unexpected.

In 2017, we were able to successfully complete several senior leadership searches for businesses who were struggling to find the right talent in wind energy for Project Management, Supply Chain, Data Analytics and Cyber Security roles. Through our knowledge of the renewable sector and in-depth questioning & screening of candidates, we identified highly qualified professionals outside of the wind industry who had the right transferable skills and motivations to be an immediate asset. By widening the pool of potential candidates and offering a consultative service, we offer our clients an advance over their competitors in the search for talent.

What do you enjoy most about working in wind?

The people! I really enjoy speaking with innovative, passionate and collaborative professionals every day and keeping up to date with an ever changing & developing industry.

Why did you join A Word About Wind?

Our vision is making a contribution to a cleaner world by getting the best possible people into the industry and helping to build the best companies in the industry. Joining AWAW, gives us the opportunity to continue participating in the wind energy sector as well as serving it.
