Jonathan Rose | Amsterdam
Associate Director – Client Services
Jon is part of our Client Services team and partners with clean technology and renewable energy clients across Europe & North America to build their teams
Jon has recruited in the energy industry for 10 years and has focused exclusively on renewables since 2016. He has a wealth of experience working with senior leadership teams to define & outline their strategy for identifying and attracting the very best talent in the industry. He has recruited for leading utilities, international energy companies, independent power producers, project developers, PE firms, investment banks and a diverse range of early-stage technology companies. Jon has lived in Houston, TX and New York, NY and now heads up TGRC’s office in Amsterdam.
Ramya Swaminathan, CEO - As a small company undergoing rapid growth, it is very important to Malta that we find candidates whose technical skills, experience, and personality align with our company’s needs and culture, and that we find those people fast. Jon helped us do just that. He made sure he understood the specific needs of our company, including the company culture we’re trying to build, provided commentary on how the strengths and weaknesses of those candidates would complement our team, and then used our feedback from each interview to refine his selections. Thanks to Jon, we have filled several key positions with excellent employees who enable us to focus on our goals instead of our hiring search. We highly recommend Jon Rose and look forward to working with him in the future.
Jeff Bishop, CEO - Jon has helped us construct an energy storage team in a rapidly changing and nebulous North American industry. He has gone far outside of the renewable industry network, bringing in front of us amazing (screened) candidates that force us into really difficult employment choices. He gets the culture we are working on creating and understands the issues we are facing. He's been great to work with.
Rupert Newland, CEO Arenko Group – We worked with Jon recently to hire a world class Commercial Director at Arenko. This was an important strategic role for us to fill and getting the right person was imperative to accelerate the commercialization of our technology and maintain our company culture. Jon carried out an extensive global search and presented a shortlist of highly qualified candidates, from whom there was a clear stand out. The chosen candidate was based in California, so the appointment came with a number of challenges including negotiation and relocation, as well as a global pandemic to contend with. Jon supported us through the process diligently and calmly, navigating between the stakeholders to broker the deal. We are delighted with the results! Thanks to Jon for his support and we would certainly recommend him to others.
