A global opportunity

Solar energy is leading the way 

Employing a third of the global renewables workforce

“Retained by a solar PV industry leader to find a trilingual finance professional, Taylor Hopkinson placed me in this C-level role. I would highly recommend them. Communication was excellent, and they came to Zurich to help close the deal. ”
