As a former CEO of a cleantech company struggling to find top talent, I knew I could make a change for the better. I started Berkner Group in 2013 after I spent x years in executive positions at cleantech companies and realized I was spending a large percentage of my time searching for the talent I needed to grow the business. I worked with a few recruiting companies and knew that I could build a better process. I have always had a passion for environmental and social causes, and I knew I wanted to help companies working in this space. I combined my background in engineering and my experience in building successful teams, to build a company and a process that works. I pulled together some of the smartest people I know to help advise me and together we created Berkner Group.
