As one of the most essential, most visible and most international industries in the world, the energy sector requires leaders with deft management skills, international experience and the ability to navigate politically complex situations. Spencer Stuart has a 60-year track record finding senior-level executives who can manage increasingly sophisticated operations in a world of political, regulatory and economic unpredictability.

We draw on our direct industry experience to help find and assess high-caliber leaders for clients across energy sectors, including oil and gas, utilities, infrastructure and renewables. We also help energy organizations improve the effectiveness of their boards and senior leadership teams, and support strategic and cultural transformation.

We are committed to your success.

During the past three years, we have conducted hundreds of senior-level executive and board director searches in the energy sector, ranging from multibillion-dollar corporations to venture capital-backed startups. More than half of our searches in the industry are at the board or C-level.
We develop long-term relationships with our clients in the industry — some going back to the mid-1970s — giving us the in-depth knowledge of their business to create teams compatible with their culture and strategy, as well as unmatched access to energy leaders.
Many of our consultants are former executives in the industry and bring firsthand knowledge to each assignment. Sixty percent of our work in the energy industry comes from returning clients.
