Director of Technology and Project Development
Our client (a dominant player who has continued to make successful strategic acquisitions and a company we have placed with before) is seeking a confident, very seasoned Director of Technology and Project Development with gravitas to lead their team’s effort to convert legacy lighting to LEDs and connect them with controls while putting processes together with efficiency so that our client’s lighting expertise is evident in every proposal!
You will utilize your strong understanding of the technical aspects of lighting, your experience working for an ESCO or lighting manufacturer, your ability to manage a variety of personalities, experience with the retrofit business and your knowledge of good design versus bad, all of which will help you as you lead and grow your team and optimize department performance. Your strong experience with the lighting conversions space using energy audits will also serve you well as your team successfully designs solutions rather than products.

Our ideal candidate is also strategic, transparent, comfortable in their own skin and able to hold themselves and their subordinates accountable. Management experience of at least 20 people and/or $50M+ is critical. (Any) engineering degree required, MBA a plus but not essential. 10-15% travel (when travel returns).
