Senior financial role
Placing the ‘hard-to-find’ people

We were retained to deliver a Development Executive for a leading offshore wind developer. This was a key position, set to play a leading part in the development of justifications for investment decisions.

The role required a highly competent financial modeller with a solid background in working on renewable energy projects, in particular offshore wind.

We mapped out the teams involved in offshore wind deals over the past five years to identify the most relevant senior talent with hands-on modelling expertise.
