Hi I'm Chloe, Head of Energy Storage for North America at Piper Maddox.
I am originally from the UK where I graduated from Durham University with a degree in Geography and worked for an Executive Finance recruitment firm in London for four years. I now lead the Energy Storage division at Piper Maddox, based in New York.
I am a people expert and aim to not only help people find the next step in their career, but to support my clients in attracting the best talent in the market to grow and scale their businesses, ensuring not just the perfect technical fit for the job but also cultural fit for the team. We have the specialism to support a variety of businesses which are leading the way across a variety of Energy Storage technology. These include flywheel systems, battery systems, thermal ESSs, pumped-hydro systems, ultracapacitor systems, superconducting magnetic ESSs, compressed air systems, hydrogen systems, and others.
Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?
I have always been passionate about Renewable Energy having studied Geography at University and specialising in Climate Change. This gave me an understanding of how individuals, companies and countries can develop economically as well as sustainably. This was the beginning of my quest to work for a business that could change the world for the better.
This year I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to work for Piper Maddox in New York and to Head up the Energy Storage team. Since joining, I have been working with some of the bigger names within the market, along with smaller start ups during phases of growth and expansion. As the Renewable Energy industry is the fastest growing industry in the US, its been an incredible experience learning from a truly passionate team and interacting daily with some of the most driven and talented people in the industry.
Piper Maddox is also dedicated to promoting diversity within the Renewable Energy industry. Women make up just 24% of those employed within clean tech and a mere 2% at the executive level. Piper Maddox partners with WRISE and other platforms to target a wider talent pool and deliver diverse shortlists to our clients.
Our collective mission is clear and simple – we are all about changing lives and saving the planet!
I am a big water sports fan!! Give me a wakeboard, mono ski or a scuba diving tank and I am in my element. I also love live music (I have an eclectic taste) and try to make it to gigs on a regular basis.
