Tom DeRosa, Founder & Managing Partner


Tom is an accomplished and recognized leader in Executive Search, with a consistent track record, that has delivered a level of production amongst the top 1% of his peers.  He has over 20 years of experience leading organizations and building relationships through hard work, integrity, and delivering upon promises.

With 15 years of Executive Search experience, Tom has built organizations of all sizes, from seed-funded startups, to global leaders with annual sales in excess of ten billion dollars.  He has dedicated the last 8 years towards recruiting for Cleantech companies, with a focus on solar, wind, storage, energy efficiency and smart grid solutions.

Tom’s renewable energy experience is not limited to search.  In 2002, he was an early advocate of a rooftop-mounted wind-powered generator for residential and commercial markets, which included a battery storage system and reverse meter capable of delivering excess power back to the grid.  While not a pioneer, this early marketing and sales experience led to additional insights associated with local and national laws and tax incentives, as well as further insight into the inherent complications of our archaic energy grid.

Of note is his extensive experience within the network communications industry, having built some of the most successful companies, with equipment utilized by the Service Provider (Wireless, Wireline and Cable) and Utility markets.  Tom’s network communications experience also enables him to bridge the gap between technology and energy, and gain technical knowledge of smart grid and IoT technologies.


Tom lives in CT and enjoys an active lifestyle that includes bodybuilding, snowboarding, ice skating, wakeboarding, hiking and camping.  He also practices sustainability, including DIY solar projects, organic gardening, and raising organic hens for eggs.
