“A major IRC industry focus for 2012/13 is the renewable energy and emerging technologies sector,” says Sylvia MacArthur, president of the IRC Executive Board. “Our new member firm, Tula International, has deep search industry experience and business expertise in the sustainability market, which provides additional US-based resources for all IRC member firms, in more than 30 countries. Our sector-based talent mappings,
accessing top talent from anywhere in the world, brings optimal results to our clients.”
Bernard Vanderlande, Atlanta-based Tula International’s managing director, explains how the renewable energy sector and emerging technologies market is about far more than simply physical facilities, such as a wind farm or solar array:
“There’s all the supply chain that comes with it, making chemicals used to manufacture the wind blade composite, transport, generators, support in sales and marketing, supply chain, engineering and green building enterprises. It is a huge market – there is so much potential in the business.”
Founded in 2010, Tula specializes in finding executive-level to middle management talents for multinational renewable energy companies in the wind energy, solar (PV, Thermal or Thin-Film), biomass and biofuels, energy efficiency and energy storage, geothermal energy, hydro, and ‘clean tech’ industries. Tula International’s global network of industry contacts – and its niche position in the search profession – means the company is uniquely positioned to help its clients build an effective leadership team in the renewable energy market, and emerging technologies and sustainability sectors.
“At Tula, we are very focused in our specialized niche, and enjoy the challenge of finding the right person for our clients,” says Bernard. “It’s difficult to find experts in the industries we service, candidates with knowledge, contacts and passion for the business. These markets are young, so even the largest players (800 employees) need experienced leaders and entrepreneurial-minded people; the cultural fit in a search is very important.”
“Of course, access to new business opportunities is also very important,” he adds. “For instance, European companies are expanding to the US, and we find that solar- and wind-power are growing industries in India, China and Brazil. Our membership in IRC means we can work together to provide expanded search services to all our international clients in the renewable energy and emerging technologies industries, and sustainability market.” explains Bernard Vanderlande, managing director Tula International
