About Us

Hyperion Executive Search is a specialist global search firm acting exclusively in the cleantech sector, specifically energy storage, e-mobility, renewable technologies, smartgrid, smartcities and related markets.

We help our clients achieve their strategic goals by helping them to attract, attain and retain the key talent they need. In a nascent market where talent and experience is scarce it takes knowledge, skill and integrity to uncover the hidden talent; those too busy doing a great job with their present employer to engage with generic recruiters, to apply to job adverts or engaging with social media.

We are uniquely placed to source key and hidden talent in the cleantech sector, because we are FROM the industry. Our senior management team all have extensive experience building and managing companies and teams across the cleantech sector, including energy storage, solar and renewables, and eMobility, prior to moving into executive search.

We have an exceptional track record of working with post-investment start-ups and scale-ups across Europe and the US, building teams as well as hiring key leaders. We also add great value to companies moving into new territories or product areas, where our experience, knowledge and contacts enable us to offer much more than finding talent, key as that is.

Having completed a range of senior assignments across Europe and in the US for global blue-chip companies Hyperion was recognized as a member of the Energy Storage Alliance Top 100 (companies shaping the energy storage sector) and nominated for the ‘Pioneer’ award 2016 by the Renewable Energy Association. Since that time, we have gone on to work with some of the world’s best known cleantech, clean energy and mobility companies, and some very cool start-ups.

As a nimble well-resourced team, we make it our business to know everything about our market, and everyone of any quality that works in it.
