The Energy industry is a complex, cyclical business that historically goes through economic cycles that have a major impact on its various segments, which include exploration and production (E&P), oilfield services, power generation, utilities, and marketing. Over time, each of these sectors has experienced boom and bust.
The most recent market cycle has underscored the need for companies in each sector of the energy industry to be cognizant of the global economic factors driving market fluctuations, vigilant in the execution of corporate strategies, and focused on efficiencies in operations to protect and optimize shareholder value. In general, there are fewer companies in the energy business today than a decade ago; however, those left are significantly more efficient, lean, and fiscally astute.
Our clients in the energy business require us to find executives who meet the demanding industry dynamics present today. We work for large and small oilfield services companies, independents producers and major integrated oil companies. The focus of our energy executive search firm is typically at the senior management level or for technical experts who lead specific functional areas, such as engineering or business development.
