​Piper Maddox has been engaged on a confidential search by the parent company for the largest and most developed energy utility in the Mid-West region of the US. The client is an energy utility that distributes and provides natural gas and electricity, serving almost 7 million of the 10 million residents, just in the state in which the organization is based.

The client generated $6.2 billion in revenue in 2020 and employees almost 8000 people. This parent organization is the unregulated side of the business and is aggressively building out it’s Behind-the-meter energy business, focused initially on solar and storage projects. The strategy is to start with the Midwest as that’s where they have the biggest footprint, but have their sights set on a full-blown expansion. This is a new initiative, but the business has already completed a handful of projects (about 10MW) and has a large pipeline of viable leads, resulting in over 100MW of realistic projects in the pipeline.

The hiring manager is building out this team to deliver on their growth pipeline. The organization is trying to hit at least 25MW of new origination per year, so that’s roughly 10 projects or so at the 2-4MW range, and they need accomplished and motivated Project Managers to help them keep on track with their ambitious goals!

This is an integral role in supporting the development and execution of this company's growth plans, in a team of superstars that have been assembled to grow an industry-leading business. This is truly a high-visibility high-impact opportunity.

This is an awesome opportunity to:

  • Get in early on a growth business , where the team is going to continue to grow significantly, creating opportunities that join the business now.

  • You can come in and actually help build something special, helping define and create the processes for the business.

  • You’ll have more ownership and autonomy than at a more established platform, with more access to senior management.

  • With this company you’ll be getting the stability, and financial backing of a huge utility with the entrepreneurial opportunity and friendly culture of small, high-growth business.

  • The client is particularly well positioned financially and can actually accelerate through a recession, where others will struggle.
