With a Masters in Mass Communication and over 10 years experience in Executive Search and Strategic Corporate Communication across Asia Pacific, I now lead the focus for Renewable Energy and Infrastructure across the Americas for NextWave Partners. 

In 2013, I built an extremely niche and reputable recruitment business specialised in Renewable Energy in Asia Pacific and now intend to replicate the model and grow my expertise within North and South America. With a personal involvement in the work I undertake, I place high personal and professional expectations into every project and strive to deliver within strict timelines, complex technical and functional requirements.

My Area of Specialisation

My speciality is in driving solutions for my clients and primarily working on niche, hard-to-fill roles and complex-solutions projects. Within my industry specialisation, I recruit senior / specialist talent across the end-to-end value chain of renewable energy projects from technical to commercial to financing. 

Primarily, I partner with Independent Power Producers (IPPs), Developers,  Engineering Service Providers, Manufacturers, EPCs and other stakeholders involved in delivering renewable energy projects. Typical positions I work on include: 

  • Strategic Management Team (C-Team, Regional Directors, Country Managers, Vice President)

  • Business Development (Project Development Manager, Sales Manager, Business Development Manager, Commercial Manager)

  • Engineering (Engineering Director, Design & Engineering Director, Technical Director)

  • Project Management/Execution (Project Director, Project Manager, Construction Manager, Site Manager), Asset Management (Service Sale Manager, O&M Manager, Asset Manager)

  • R&D (Head of Research & Development, Power System Scientist, Power plant Engineering, Technology R&D Manager)

I also support infrastructure investment banks, fund managers, strategic corporates, pension funds, venture capital firms and other investment organisations to identify the very best talent to fill the following types of positions: Investment Director, Investment Manager, Vice President, Investment Principal, Senior Associate, Associate, Analyst/ Financial Modeller, Legal/General Counsel, CFO/Finance Manager/Financial Controller.

My Thoughts on Renewable Energy

Advising and consulting clients and candidates in the renewable energy sector across Asia helped me learn a lot about this industry and instilled a deep passion to propel it towards a greener future for the generations to come. 

With my focus on the US market, I am excited to build my specialisation further to ensure NextWave Partners' is seen as the respected recruitment partner of choice for organisations operating in the Renewable Energy space. 

The sooner we create a world powered by renewable energy, the better it is for us. This is the only way forward if we want to protect our planet for the generations to come.
