Global demand for efficient and environmentally responsible energy has driven exponential growth in the Cleantech sector. These start-up companies and corporate ventures – in segments as diverse as power generation, energy storage, electric vehicle infrastructure, alternative fuels, and green chemistry – require nimble, entrepreneurial leaders and thinkers who can successfully migrate a tech-heavy, R&D focused entity to a level of profitability. While venture capital has largely shied away from Cleantech lately, disruptive technology advancements in the space are not going unnoticed.

For more than 30 years, TRANSEARCH consultants around the globe have roots working in segments like renewable chemistry and water management, precursors to Cleantech before Cleantech was a trendy concept. In this fast-evolving space, we have expanded our tools to better help clients with key roles in their organizations, from CEO to senior director level. We have excelled at supporting clients for various cross-border needs in Europe, the Americas, Asia, and other emerging markets. Our core business remains executive search; however, we also provide stand-alone leadership assessments and onboarding assistance, as well as a platform for building a robust talent pipeline.

For each assignment, we provide our clients with the best team, whose members are selected based on industry expertise and geographic location. In order to cultivate and preserve strong relationships with leadership talent in the space, our consultants regularly participate in major industry conferences, including – National Advanced Biofuels Conference, DistribuTECH, Solar Power International, WEFTEC, and the USGBC GreenBuild Expo.
