At a recent National Trade Show, Nenni & Associates engaged with a leader in the Energy Services Industry, thanks to a connection through a current Nenni employee. This connection led to a partnership between the Multidiscipline General Contractor and Nenni & Associates for the purpose of performing an Executive search to fulfill the role Vice President of Energy Services.
Nenni’s BTG division, including Trevor Morrison, Sam Swafford, and Sean Bayless took on the challenge of locating a Vice President of Energy Services for the company. The desired candidate would require proven energy sales leadership as well as a passion and excitement for creating a new division within the company. This individual needed a track record of entrepreneurial accomplishments and a hunger to succeed. To fit the culture of the company, confidence and a dynamic personality were a must.
As the BTG division set out to find the perfect fit, they pulled 4 top-tier candidates from several industries, including Mechanical Contracting, Energy Services, and Electrical Contracting. After much deliberation, interviews, and conversations to see which candidates were experienced in national sales and operations teams within the Energy Services Industry and also met all of the client’s requirements, the team narrowed the 4 candidates down to 2, and eventually, 1 finalist was presented to the client.
The candidate was chosen after showing a strong personality connection with the client’s leadership team and their impressive initiative in providing a plan for success. They had previously developed and built an Energy Services business for a General Contractor as well.
The client was thrilled to extend an offer due to the candidate meeting all requirements as well as offering flexibility, commitment, and the confidence needed to build the business in the allotted time period. The candidate was compelled to accept the offer, which contained long-term growth opportunities and the challenges necessary to further their career.
