I started my career in recruitment, covering financial services roles, but have been focusing on the Energy industry for the past 7 years, covering permanent and contract recruitment across conventional power and renewable energy in the Asia Pacific region. 

Since joining NextWave in 2016, I have worked closely with funds, developers, and other related organisations to help identify senior management across investment, development, and technical functions to drive renewable energy projects across the South East Asia region.

My thoughts on Renewable Energy

As NextWave Partners tracks investments into renewable energy projects from a very early stage, we’re able to understand the complexities and challenges of setting up a project team within a specific country.

With Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, as well as other countries in South East Asia becoming focal points for renewable energy investment in Asia, my team is strategically positioned to support clients' growth particularly when there are requirements for localized experts with knowledge of the specific markets.

As the adoption of renewable energy continues to accelerate in the region, I'm excited to partner with the industry leaders to help bring these projects/investments to fruition!
