Executive Search

Focused, dedicated service that drives exceptional results

Business intelligence is a critical component of successful retained searches. To ensure that we connect the candidates and companies who truly match each other’s needs, our retained search experts invest up front in comprehensive research. We carefully assess the position and how your experiences and skills fit with those elements. Our comprehensive research also evaluates the strategic, financial, political, cultural and operational aspects of the company. We understand the process. We understand the industry. We proceed in a highly efficient and consultative fashion to find the perfect match between your career goals and companies seeking your skills. We understand what it takes to deliver knowledgeable results that will exceed your expectations.

We listen – truly listen. We assess. And then we deliver.


Our retained search recruiters are true business and career partners with the executives they represent. We work closely with our candidates to understand your career objectives and what you are seeking in your next role. We also listen to all of the dynamics involved in the retained recruiting process, ensuring that everyone—from the hiring company’s top executives to the head of HR—are on the same page. By clarifying expectations and minimizing misunderstandings at the outset, we ensure that you move efficiently and successfully through the retained recruiting process.

Our retained search experts guide you through critically important hires

All of Energy Sourcing’s retained searches are assigned and managed directly by one of our Managing Partners who will be engaged in the beginning of a search will see it through to a successful hire and follow up. You can feel confident that the Managing Partner you work with understands the full story of the opportunity and will confidentially handle sourcing, qualifying and shepherding the entire hiring process. We buck the practice of many other retained search firms who fly in one team for the proposal presentation and then turn the actual search over to a different group. The result of our singular dedication is an extremely high success rate for retained executive search. And isn’t that what you’re after—career results?
