Alex Cohen

Alex Cohen

Vice President - Head of Piper Maddox New York

I am one of the founding members and Vice President of Piper Maddox, responsible for Renewable Energy & Cleantech Recruitment in North America.

I couldn’t be more passionate about Renewable Energy & Cleantech, spending the last 6 years building an unparalleled network of professionals and companies in this niche space, built on 11 years of international recruitment experience in the Energy Sector.

I have become an expert in the market in which I operate in, and couldn’t be better placed to support any company looking to grow in this space. I'm also proud to have helped build Piper Maddox to where it is today and played a huge part in the strategic direction of the business. In this time I have built teams at Piper Maddox to be focused on the same core principles: add as much value as possible; deliver the highest quality solution; and be a true expert in your market.

Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?

I often joke to my friends that “we’re changing lives and saving the planet” at Piper Maddox! That may be a little grandiose but what I love about this job and this company is that we can say we’re having a positive impact on people’s lives, businesses and on the planet.

This sector allows an opportunity to be a part of something that’s changing the planet for the better, working with some of the most advanced technology in a space that’s constantly evolving. Not to mention that sector is growing so fast, there’s so much opportunity for us to add value - what’s not to love!

Jon-Paul Bramham

Jon-Paul Bramham

Vice President - Head of Piper Maddox Austin

I'm Jon-Paul, Vice President of the contract division and based out of our Austin office. I am one of the founding members of Piper Maddox.

I have over 12 years’ experience in contract recruitment. I spent my first 3 years in the UK supporting the public sector across multiple disciplines. I moved to the US in 2011 where I worked in the fossil fuel industry, building out engineering, commissioning and construction teams. After moving to and spending 12 months in South Korea to head up an international operation, I moved back to the US to join Piper Maddox where I am responsible for all delivery and growth aspects of our contract provision. We support clients ranging from EPC’s to owners and developers to OEM’s to build out site-based project and execution teams, and supplement their technical workforce with highly skilled, temporary workers.

Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?

The first thing that attracted me to Piper Maddox and LHi was the value system that runs through the DNA of the organization. Piper Maddox are first and foremost a people business and this is reflected in how the organization engages with our clients and candidates. As someone who values human interaction very highly, this deeply resonated with me.

Having worked in the oil & gas industry through the most recent downturn, it was extremely disheartening to see how quickly organizations put profit and shareholder return above people and that inspired me to look for an industry that genuinely cared about what it was trying to achieve. Renewable energy is exactly that. It’s very easy to say that I care about the environment, and that is why I chose to work for Piper Maddox, but it’s so much more than that.

We should care about the environment, that is a given, but what I was motivated to be a part of was an industry that was all pulling the same way, to solve what might just be the greatest challenge we have faced as a species. It gives me so much pleasure to connect with people who share the same vision of a sustainable future for the world.

Ultimately, my goal for Piper Maddox as a business is to be recognized as a key conduit for enabling the ongoing proliferation of renewable and clean energy across the US and beyond. I want to be seen as a genuinely valued partner who is connecting the industries top talent with the most ambitious and forward thinking organizations and to play any part possible in ensuring my daughter, her peers, their sons and daughters and all future generations have the same place to call home that we have.

As a passionate marketer, I focus on brand awareness and results-driven marketing across the Group. I head up the marketing team at Piper Maddox and LHi, supporting and servicing all of our brands in all aspects of their marketing. With over a decade of experience within the recruitment industry, working in an array of market sectors, I'm able to add invaluable specialist quality to the Piper Maddox team.

Why Piper Maddox?

I joined in 2013 from a large international recruitment company and have built what is now a highly regarded marketing function supporting all the brands. I have been instrumental in the brand creation of multiple brand here at LHi Group, including Harper Harrison, Piper Maddox and SciPro in multiple international offices.

Something else...

I spend most of my time (and money) following Bruce Springsteen around the world like a stalker.

Ben Richardson

Senior Vice President - Head of LHi Group West Coast

​I'm Ben Richardson, I'm SVP and head up the Piper Maddox brand on the West Coast, based in Los Angeles .

As one of LHi Groups longest serving employees, I have had the opportunity to be part of the impressive growth we have experienced as an organization. From setting up our first ever office in the US based in NYC, to having the opportunity to open and grow our West Coast team, I have been at the forefront of building our US business. For our Piper Maddox brand, I am involved in building our overall strategy, ensuring we hire the best possible talent to lead and deliver services to our clients and maintaining high level relationships with leaders in the industry.

Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?

Piper Maddox is at the forefront of one of the most exciting, cutting edge and progressive industries. Crucial to the sustainability of our planet, there really isn’t a more important area to support.

Nearly all renewable energy investments are disbursed on materials and workmanship to maintain and build facilities, rather than on costly energy imports. This results in a consistent need for well qualified, experience experts specifically within this sector. Our sophisticated, mature approach to search results in Piper Maddox means we are reguarly a chosen recruitment partner to customers across the globe.

Something else…

Despite being out here in the US for quite some time, I am still yet to let go of my other real passion, Crystal Palace FC. I have just renewed my CPFC season ticket for another year despite the fact I am based over 5000 miles away. Luckily, I have friends that buy my ticket from me each week, but I just couldn’t give up the seat I have had for over 15 years.

I am extremely proud to be LHi’s longest serving employee. Starting as a graduate in 2007, I very quickly worked my way up the ladder to now heading up LHi Inc.

Something else…

Although I am a convert to electric vehicles and believe they are the future, I also have an obsession with classic cars. My current project is restoring a 1971 911 Porsche to its original state.
