About Clarion


About Us

30 Years Of Experience From Within The Global Energy And Shipping Industries.

The worlds of energy and transport are exciting, dynamic, and core to our life on this planet. The challenges of big data, volatile markets, shifting geopolitics, the evolving regulatory environment, and the transparent information world we now live in means that finding the right talent for your business is paramount. This applies not just to the front office but also to the critical functions that make a business work: the operators, the engineers, the mariners, the trade finance officers, the analysts, the IT teams, the business developers, the lawyers, the risk managers, and the charterers to name but a few.

Clarion has lived through several cycles in the commodities industry; its UK based Managing Director having been an oil trader from the 90’s through to 2007. Added to this is her subsequent 14-year career in executive search within commodities: from CEO to promising graduate talent. In addition, the Managing Partner of our Swiss Company, Clarion GmbH, has held energy trading and managerial positions for 25 years, only leaving the industry in 2016 to join Clarion. Our Managing Partner for Clarion Search Pte Ltd in Singapore has over 25 years of experience in the oil and LNG industry, holding senior positions in SOE’s and private trading companies in both China and Singapore. The Director of our renewables practice based out of Scandinavia is also an industry veteran with over 30 years’ experience in oil operations and more recently the renewables industry.

Thanks to this history, we have a huge network of trusted contacts and industry knowledge that we can apply to whatever problem or need you may have. Whether it is a new venture or a global corporation, we are ready to listen and then use our talents to help you find yours.

On the executive search side, our main areas of focus are the power, gas, LNG, oil, petrochemicals, carbon, hydrogen, and biofuels markets and within them, the downstream sectors including but not limited to:

Trading, marketing, business development & origination, operations, chartering/shipping, analysis (fundamental and quantitative), trade finance, risk management, legal & compliance/regulatory, sustainability, data science, treasury, C-suite management roles.

In addition, we have deep expertise in the shipping and maritime world at a senior level and in offshore engineering/E&P and offshore services.
