About us

Hyperion Executive Search builds teams for the most innovative cleantech companies, enabling them to find extraordinary people.

We have an unmatched ability to discover valuable candidates for senior roles across Europe and the U.S. thanks to our deep insight into the clean energy and e-mobility sectors. Guiding our clients through the entire hiring journey, we cultivate long-term and fruitful relationships that last for years. We dedicate time shaping what a candidate should look like for every role we fill, while our structured 28-step process and retained search methodology makes recruitment simpler and easier.

We are transparent about who we work with, giving candidates access to lifechanging career opportunities at market-leading firms. Though we don’t just place and forget: we create longstanding connections with the people in our network, educating and coaching them through the flux that changing jobs conjures. Through openness and honesty, our team will show you a different, more personal side to recruitment.

Our international management team is made up of naturally curious people who are embedded in cleantech. They have lived and breathed different cultures, drawing on their collective experience to help solve the challenges that our clients and candidates face.

Hyperion is confident in its ability to outperform larger, more corporate recruitment firms and is not afraid to call out industry controversy. Each team member has significant visibility, whether speaking at global events, writing thought leadership columns or through CEO David Hunt’s This Week in Cleantech podcast.

By bringing the best people together, we are driving the transition towards clean energy and the adoption of e-mobility. We are facilitators of change: with our clients, we are transforming business and growing a strong and prosperous cleantech economy.

    Our Offices

    • Our Germany based office came to life in 2015 when our now Managing Director Wolfgang Kick joined the business. Munich has been named Germany's “Energy Saving Municipality” and the steps that it has taken in clean technologies have definitely make it the perfect home for a Hyperion office. Along side that the annual Oktoberfest celebration is always a bonus.
