“The Energists recruited and secured several candidates that surpass the common standard in the industry regarding capabilities, integrity, and personality. They sourced top-tier individuals that meet [our] standard of excellence and the next generation of leadership in the space we occupy. The Energists also possess the uncanny ability to engage the high performance candidates that are happy in their current position and are not seeking other opportunities. The Energists understood what we needed and are extremely efficient. As [our company]continues to progress and remain ahead of the market, we will definitely be using The Energists to find our people, and highly recommend using their services.”

“I have known The Energists team for over 25 years. My experience and observations of their work includes utilization of their search expertise to fill key technical and leadership positions. I was also the successful candidate on one of their executive searches. During this time span, I have used The Energists services to build successful teams in three different E&P companies. We retained The Energists for senior leadership positions in corporate planning and Director of Reservoir Engineering as well as, most recently, a new Director of Exploration, both of which have been promoted to company officers. All in all, The Energists identified and secured 19 high impact players for [us]. We [..]are very pleased and consider it a coup The Energists was able to identify, attract and secure such value building performers. Over the years I have had the opportunity to evaluate a number of other search firms. In my opinion none have compared with The Energists in their depth of understanding and recognition of the value drivers of the E&P industry.”



Robert L. Zorich,

Managing Partner

“Recently, Encap made the strategic decision to expand our executive team to include a technical leader at the Managing Director level. We sought a special candidate that surpasses common standards regarding engineering capability, commercial savvy, integrity and personality. This role requires an accomplished petroleum engineering executive with the confidence and requisite skills to work with Encap leadership as well as our portfolio company executives identifying and selecting our fund investments and follow on performance enhancement and evaluation. The Energists brought the best and brightest candidates that fit these specific needs. Engaging The Energists on this crucial search saved us considerable time and energy. I highly recommend using their services.”
