Our Team


Our staff comprises accomplished industry professionals and leaders, each with their own area of specific expertise. This extends to operations, engineering, sales, finance, HR, and in-house counsel. Additionally, navigating employer brand vs employee value proposition sensitivities is an inherent organizational competency.

Niche expertise, pedigree, and proprietary process yields top tier execution, whether as part of a tactical hire or strategic management of change initiative. Our service extends far beyond identifying, vetting, and presenting candidates. It includes the role of industry expert, advisor, confidant, mediator and, perhaps most importantly, advocate on clients’ behalf.

The Energists reduces cost and risk for clients by helping them achieve key business objectives: we access and evaluate talent others cannot.
