Associate Director - Head of Piper Maddox, London

Hi I'm ​Sue White, Head of Piper Maddox, London.

I have been with Piper Maddox since June 2021 and have since had the pleasure of leading and growing the brand across Europe, from our London office. We specialise in the CleanTech sector and work with fantastic, innovative organisations to help them build industry leading teams to disrupt the Energy Eco System for the better.

The Piper Maddox team are true market experts and provide value to our clients far beyond just the best candidates in the market, but can also advise our clients in anything related to attracting and retaining top tier talent.

Prior to this, my background was in Financial Services recruitment, so have always worked with a variety of clients from seed funded start ups, to international blue chip clients.

Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?

I’m lucky enough to be coming into a brand which is already recognised as a leading specialist in the clean energy space, which is credit to the team for their ‘inch wide, mile deep’ approach. It means that we are genuinely relied on by our clients and candidates alike, for not only our specialist knowledge, but our connections in this sector too.

I am really passionate about clean energy and renewables and it’s rapidly becoming a part of everyone’s day to day lives so it’s great to impact the wider world, by working with companies to implement such changes on a scale far wider than I could as an individual.

By specialising in such an innovative and “clean” Sector, I can see first hand the passion that people in the sector have, and it’s hard not to be infected by their enthusiasm.

Hi, I am Chloe England and I run our permanent recruitment division out of Austin, TX at Piper Maddox.

I have over 6 years of Recruitment Experience, 2.5 of which have been specifically within the Renewable Energy industry. We work with large multinationals, along with start-ups from series A rounds of funding right through to their IPO or SPAC offering.

I joined the recruitment industry after graduating from the University of Durham with a degree in Geography (specialism in climate studies), as so jumped at the opportunity to join a business which was dedicated to driving forward the energy transition in the US and globally.


Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?

I was initially bought into Piper Maddox to run our Energy Storage division out of New York, and since moved down to our Austin office to build out a new offering for the business, partnering closely with our contracts team. My team in Austin partners closely with our clients and candidates, acting as true consultants and understanding your pain points to provide the best customer experience in the market.

Since a young age I have been an environmental enthusiast, growing up on a farm in rural England. There is no denying the devastating impact us humans have on this planet, and as we all know, there is no plan’et’ B. By dedicating our time to this industry, I have seen first hand the impact people have- developing new technologies, products, projects and solutions to change the world. This is why I get out of bed every day and what I want to continue committing my career to.
