Clean energy recruiter wins international assignments
Hyperion Executive Search, a clean energy recruitment agency, has won its first assignment in the United States.
Liverpool-based Hyperion, which launched just over a year ago, has also won a number of new assignments in Germany. One such assignment is with Germany-based Sonnen, which has retained Hyperion to recruit for a VP sales marketing role to help drive its growth in the US.
Korea-based LG Chem has selected Hyperion to lead its search for a sales manager for the DACH region.
David Hunt, managing partner of Hyperion, said, “We always planned to grow our business internationally but winning prestigious assignments in Germany and the United States has put us ahead of schedule. We are now actively planning to open our first offices outside of the UK.
“One of the biggest areas of activity is Germany which is often the first place clean energy companies go when looking at developing their presence in the European or EMEA region.
“Germany has become hugely reliant on renewables for electricity generation – producing five times as much as it did a decade ago.
“We are also winning a number of briefs from German headquartered clean energy firms looking at expanding outside of their own country. We first recruited a Country Director for Sonnen in the UK and have now been chosen to recruit for a key role in the US.”
Hyperion has also delivered assignments for other German renewable energy companies including solar technology specialists Hanwha Q CELLS and SMA.
