Magellan Supports Net-Zero and Clean Technology Team Build for the Energy Sector


Finding leaders and team to lead adoption of clean tech for the energy sector

A leading global clean technology firm retained Magellan to find the right senior executive leaders to shape and grow their team in clean technology adoption in the energy sector verticals, upstream, midstream, downstream, and chemicals.


Clarifying deliverables for leaders and team members

As we do with all our clients, Magellan began the search process by meeting with the hiring leadership to understand the business case for the desired leaders. The goal was to hire a leader with deep expertise to generate advocacy with multiple clients in each energy. Then we followed with supporting team builds at the manager and senior associate level to create a delivery team.

Validating our approach with direct market intelligence.

Through our extensive networks, we validated the leadership requirements and the required team expertise to complete the build. Adjustments were made live during the search as required to ensure success.

Locating and securing the best candidates

Magellan tailored this search to accommodate our clients’ unique hiring requirements. We then focused on industry eminence and network connections for the leaders and deep domain and techno-economic expertise for the team members.

The Magellan Difference

  • Effectively re‐scoping the search based on market intelligence and industry requirements
  • Focusing on industry advocates using unique contracting options to accommodate their unique customer relationships
  • Completing senior searches, quickly followed by a pipeline of team members to be brought on as needed over time


We used intelligent systems and a professional network to complete the project on time and under budget.

Magellan’s approach of partnering with our clients, truly understanding their business goals, and using our expertise to advise them on the best path made this a very successful search. Our client gained valuable insights into the market and found two top‐notch senior candidates, and is now effectively building the rest of the team.

Candidates have been successful hires

Our client is already benefiting from the performance of the candidates identified by Magellan. The two senior hires have been successful in generating consensus for clean technology options in the oil and gas and chemical industries. Their expertise and skills are also transferred to junior members of their teams. Additionally, our candidates’ deep industry contacts have also led to funding opportunities for our clients.
