Pattern Energy

One of the world’s largest privately-owned developers that operate utility scale wind and solar power facilities in the US.

The Partnership.

Pattern Energy is one of the world’s largest privately-owned developers and operators of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage project assets across North America, Japan, and parts of Latin America.

Its operational portfolio includes 30 renewable energy facilities that use proven, best-in-class technology. Pattern Energy is guided by a long-term commitment to serve customers, protect the environment, and strengthen communities.


The challenges they were facing.

After many years of Piper Maddox reaching out to Pattern, Michael Wald made the connect through his network with Eric Roberts (Patterns Director of Finance) who introduced him to the head of HR.

At the start of the relationship, we agreed to work under a contingent model as they had a number of recruiters they worked with in the past, but wanted to limit the amount of firms they work with, so they cancelled several contracts.


The solutions we presented.

We ended up placing two candidates into their Portfolio Finance team which allowed us to create a much closer partnership. Off the back of that, we ended up placing six candidates into the firm on a contingent engagement contract.

In 2022, pattern acquired Dynamic Energy and Solect energy and was going to rapidly ramp up their hiring across all firms while keeping their TA function lean. Because of this increase in hiring, they were looking for one firm to engage with on a high-volume model.

We offered them a 20-role project retainer engagement to help given them the best pricing possible with no expiration date on using the credits as they were not sure if the hiring was going to ramp up more in 2023 or 2024.


The Results.

Throughout 2022 and 2023, Piper Maddox was engaged on 16 active roles with Pattern (and their subsidiaries) and we have placed 14 professionals into the firm.

Through the quality of service and the quality of the delivery by Piper Maddox, Pattern Energy are delighted with the solution implemented and our service exceeded the expectations of the business.
