MEET OUR TEAM
Ceri Walbran, President and CEO
After years of managing a team of top performing recruitment or human capital consultants at Michael Page International, Ceri joined the founding team at Energeia Australia in 2009. Their goal was to pursue a gap foreseen in the professional services market for specialist information, skills and expertise that would be required for the industry’s transformation over the coming years.
With her knack for finding and connecting people with the right skill set and expertise to join their driven team, Ceri’s own background and skill set were instrumental to the company’s success as a start-up in the highly competitive consulting space.
Following the successful launch and growth of Energeia becoming the foremost energy specialized consulting firm in Australia, Ceri expanded Energeia’s operations to California in 2015.
Once in California, the Californian market responded strongly to Energeia’s unique philosophy and value proposition geared towards those at the forefront and cutting edge of the energy sector. And it continues to do so.
Today, Ceri oversees a team of 16 experts in both Australia and California who thrive on the challenge of tackling and solving the energy industry’s hardest and most important problems.
