Having 8 years direct Executive Search experience in the Energy Sector across all major markets, including 4 years specialisation in APAC Power Generation, I have come to understand the complexities in developing, executing and operating power plants. 

Covering both permanent search and contract solutions, I have developed a value-add ethos in consultations to both clients and candidates alike, developing a reputation for providing visibility to project investors, whoare looking to deploy capital, and giving candidates a view ahead of the market.

My business partner and myself founded the business to be market makers rather than market takers!

My thoughts on Power & Utilities

Thermal Power investors and IPPs across the Asia Pacific region have been out in force in the past 12 months, and we expect that to be the case again in 2018 with countries like Indonesia and Vietnam gathering momentum by moving ahead with multiple large-scale coal and gas fired power projects.

Notably investor appetite for the steady long-term yields that flow from regulated power and gas infrastructure assets has meant continued interest in the APAC Region, especially seeing the ambition for domestic IPPs to develop & acquire assets overseas, coupled with the surge in money flowing from markets such as the Middle East & China.

Despite being an industry that is transitioning towards clean energy and renewables, the demand for base load power capacity from fossil fuels in many developing countries in Asia over the coming years is essential to their growth, and the wider adoption of a greener energy mix in long run.
