​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.
