TRANSEARCH was recently selected by a privately held developer, owner and operator of power generation projects. Our mandate was to engage and hire a seasoned, hands-on leader to take over the company’s ongoing efforts and develop gas-fired power plants across the United States. Although the company has had a longstanding presence in the sector, it found itself without a development executive who had the track record of completing simple and combined cycle power plants. The ideal individual needed to have this experience, which meant the successful candidate would likely have been in the space since the 1990’s, before the most recent boom in renewables.

TRANSEARCH was recently selected by the Board and CEO of this early stage, pre-revenue technology company headquartered in Dallas. Our mandate was to identify an executive who would lead the company’s R&D and commercialization efforts to drive the next generation technology growth of the business. Since the company’s inception in 2007, the team had focused primarily on the technological advancement and commercialization of its biodiesel production technology. With the co-Founder and Chief Science Officer nearing retirement, they needed a PhD chemist to take the company “beyond biodiesel” – focusing on commercialization of bio-lubricants and specialty oleochemicals. With less than a dozen people in the organization, cultural fit was vital.
