Catherine McLean is a fantastic partner for clean energy businesses looking for talent. Catherine spent time listening to our needs and creating a plan for us. She is very responsive and consultative. She has a great network and is well liked by the professionals in her network. She also goes out of her way to spend time with companies in the clean energy industry—learning about our businesses so she can be a better advocate. I highly recommend Dylan Green.
I would recommend Catherine to everyone who’s seeking a career in the renewable world. Catherine gave me a call the next day after I submitted my application; she diligently spent time getting to know me, my background and interests. She is so different from the other recruiters I have talked with as she truly sees potential in candidates, and does not use a cookie cutter model to evaluate one’s qualities. Throughout the interviewing process, she advocated strongly for me. For a very first time, I felt that I was being represented and advocated as a woman in this industry. I ended up finding a great opportunity at a great organization. None of this would be possible without Catherine’s dedication, belief and vision!
I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to work with Catherine. She is communicative, clear, honest and really cares about the people she works with. It is evident that Catherine takes the time to place the right people in the perfect spot. Thanks for everything Catherine!
Catherine is extremely responsive and was an invaluable help in my search for an executive role. She gave clear and concise advice in how to highlight my skills in a competitive market. Catherine has deep expertise in the solar and renewable energy sector, and she would be my go-to for staffing needs.
Catherine went above and beyond teaming up from the get go to understand the business purpose, refine the position profile to then line up the right screening direction jointly. Brings a strong network in the clean energy space, fast to build a solid slate and in providing feedback. Responsiveness is key to secure the right candidates on time and Catherine surely delivers on that. Not at all a recruiter, but a great partner to rely on!
Catherine was instrumental in transitioning me from a fossil-fuel generation company to a growing renewable developer. I spoke with several other recruiters, but almost none compared to her level of guidance, preparedness, and professionalism. At every step of the way, she provided uncommon insight and remained very responsive. She truly cared about ensuring I found a spot I would thrive and succeed. I felt she vetted me thoroughly at the outset and pointed out areas I could improve. I believe her advice helped tremendously. I went into each interview well prepared, eager to share my experiences and learn more about my potential colleagues. She is honest, caring, knowledgeable, and impressively thorough. I do not hesitate in recommending Catherine to anyone looking for a highly qualified representative.
We recently completed, with Catherine's help and guidance, searches for two new senior business development & marketing positions and couldn't be happier with the outcomes. Catherine's credibility and network in the renewable energy space is outstanding. She quickly dialed into our needs for both positions, brought us high quality candidates, and remained actively involved as the recruiting process played out. Catherine worked collaboratively with our recruiting team and clearly added a lot of value.
Catherine's practice has consistently delivered exceptional renewable energy candidates across a variety of disciplines. Catherine is very good at understanding the needs of our business, finding exceptional candidates, and then keeping tight communication between potential employer and employee to ensure a great match. That Catherine also specializes in finding diverse candidates in a fairly non-diverse industry makes her services that much better and virtually indispensable for a forward-leaning renewable energy hiring manager.
I had the pleasure of working with Catherine during my search for a new career opportunity. Catherine is extremely knowledgeable in the renewables space, and matched me with an organization that aligns with both my personal and professional growth goals. I felt well prepared going into the interview stage, and Catherine made the process enjoyable and seamless from start to finish. I so appreciate the time and effort she committed to my search. Thank you again, Catherine!
Catherine is an excellent and streamlined communicator. She helped me transition from the Automotive sector to a space that allows me to exercise my love for both automotive and clean energy. She was with me through the entire recruitment process and ensured I had what I needed to succeed. Catherine really helped me get to my dream job and for this I am grateful to have worked with her. When working with Catherine you are sure to succeed in your needs!
Catherine helped me move from Oil and Gas/Chemicals to the renewable energy industry. She helped me translate and show the similarities in forecasting, modeling, long range planning, capital expenditures, and other areas such as access to capital and M&A. Personally, I think there are many ways professionals with my background can demonstrate their value in the renewable energy space. I am grateful to Catherine for helping me find a platform to demonstrate this! Her coaching and support were invaluable. The understanding of the industry and companies were impeccable. I highly recommend you work with her.
I have worked with Catherine for years and she is without doubt the most committed, knowledgeable, and effective recruitment professional I have ever worked with. In what can often seem like a crowded field of recruitment and talent acquisition, she stands out given the depth of her industry knowledge, the strength of her network, and the keen interest she takes in truly bettering the career of every individual she crosses paths with. If you've worked with Catherine, you understand how much importance she places on understanding your value system and interests, before she makes a single recommendation or introduction. If you haven't yet worked with Catherine, you absolutely should!
Catherine helped my firm recruit a strong leader for our ES&G advisory practice. This was a position outside of our network, and Catherine brought top candidates to us for our review. During the interview process, Catherine was engaged throughout and ready to help us close the top candidate. Catherine's focus on diversity was really important and a key factor in our relationship. I strongly recommend Catherine.
Catherine was great to work with through the recruitment process. She was clear, transparent and communicated well. Her ability to communicate and build rapport rapidly made the process efficient and easy to go through. I was happy and grateful to have worked with Catherine!
Catherine is incredibly skilled at identifying opportunities and making the right connections. I worked with Catherine while exploring new career opportunities in the energy space. I had a sense of what I was looking for, but Catherine was able to help me narrow down the things that mattered most to me. Throughout the process of exploring different roles, I genuinely felt that Catherine was in my corner and had my best interests in mind. I ultimately found an amazing new position with Catherine's help. Weeks later, I'm still in awe of Catherine's effectiveness, skill and power! Thankful to have her in my network.
It’s been a pleasure to partner with Catherine on diversity needs. It’s one thing to say you are a committed to diversity, and it’s another to actually deliver. Catherine delivers on her commitment with professionalism, influence without authority, and always with the best interest of the business and candidate in mind. I would highly recommend Catherine to anyone who is serious about achieving their diversity goals. She is a great partner!
Catherine was so incredibly professional and diligent in her search to help CleanCapital fill a highly specialized role. She asked all of the right questions and made my life as the hiring manager so much easier. Catherine does the work on her own what some firms can't accomplish with a whole team! She provides a personalized touch and you feel she is prioritizing your hiring needs at all times. She is highly communicative and such a pleasure to work with all around.
I worked with Catherine while looking for a new role in the renewable energy sector. I had never worked with a recruiter before, but she helped connect me to a position that was a better fit and had a more competitive salary, something that would have been tough to do I had gone it alone. Throughout the process, she tirelessly advocated on my behalf with my future employer and gave great advice on how to position myself strategically for success. I especially appreciated her focus on bringing more women into the field. I would highly recommend Catherine for anyone looking to make their next career move.
Catherine truly connects with you at an individual level and is always willing to selflessly help. It is this attribute that allows her to have such an amazing network of people that are so willing to help her back. Add her ability to quickly understand the inner workings of an industry and it is clear why Catherine is so incredible at her job.
I connected with Catherine after she was highly recommended to me by a Siemens Smart Buildings colleague to help fill an important role at Comfy. Partnered with Catherine to find highly-sought-after folks for a hard to fill role was an excellent experience. She was extremely responsive, well connected to folks in energy, overall IoT, and tech spaces, and we partnered seamlessly to fill our role in record time. I'd highly recommend Dylan Green and Catherine to anyone looking for a well connected recruiter in sales tech who will compellingly represent your job opportunities and quickly bringing in top candidates!
Catherine and I connected in person a few months ago and instantly hit it off. We attended an event together in the DC area, and it was amazing to watch her network and interact with the other attendees. She is incredibly well-connected in the energy space, and shortly after meeting each attendee, she was able to find a company or individual that she and the attendee had in common. She brings those connections and that attention to detail to her approach to recruiting as well: Not long after meeting with me, she contacted me about an opening at Empower Energies, as she felt that the hiring manager and I would also hit it off. Sure enough, within a month I had a job offer in hand. Catherine was the ultimate professional during my interview and hiring process. She ensured that I was prepared for the interview by connecting me with other candidates she was working with who were in the solar space, and coached me on the appropriate research to undertake. She and I met post-interview to debrief and she made sure that anything I missed, I was able to recover via a follow-up email. She also expertly negotiated my offer, and kept me up-to-date when there was an unexpected delay. I can't recommend her and Dylan Green enough, and I am so pleased to have connected with her.
