Unlike the more common executive recruiting firms that attempt to find qualified candidates in many different industries, finding top executives in the bioeconomy may be a much more difficult proposition. The universe of qualified candidates in the bioeconomy is much smaller than in most other industries. Further, the most competent executives who currently manage operations in bioenergy – like ethanol, renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuels, or the myriad of other biofuels plants – are most likely happily employed. Finally, knowing where to find these executives is probably not something known to the normal “executive search firm”.
At Lee Enterprises Consulting, we have 150+ experts in virtually all areas of the bioeconomy. Our average expert has 30+ years of experience in his or her area of expertise and we work expertise for some of the world’s best-known companies. Executive recruiting is not our livelihood. In fact, it is a very small part of what we do – less than 1% – necessitated by continual inquiries we receive from bioeconomy employers looking to fill these specialized positions. Our function in this service is simply to find good, experienced candidates in these specialized areas. We leverage our collective knowledge and contact base within the bioeconomy to find candidates, allowing the employer to interview and come to terms without our further assistance. Thus, our executive recruiting fees are much lower than a typical executive search firm.
Among our experts is a wide range of services in bioenergy, biomaterials and chemicals, biotechnologies, and feedstocks. Take a look at our experts and all the different services we provide.
