Heidrick & Struggles Utilities team understands the diverse day-to-day issues facing utility companies and how that impacts its current and future talent landscape. In order for utility executives to remain competitive and relevant, they will need to uncover a new generation of leaders that can go beyond traditional experience.

Our international team of experts serves a dynamic list of public and private utility entities from start-up to high growth and mature stage companies, as well as investor-owned utilities, private equity firms, investment banks, and foreign and domestic infrastructure funds.

We follow the critical utility issues and trends facing executives and how they impact the talent agenda. In speaking with top-level executives every day, we know the industry seeks non-utility talent to pioneer fresh approaches in technology and products.

Many of our team’s consultants have worked directly in the industry and have an inside view of this unique sector. As a result, we have conducted many searches and provided leadership counsel to top utility executives around the world.
