The client, Hudson Sustainable Group, LLC (Hudson), based in Miami, is one of the world’s leading asset management firms in the sustainable investing sector. Given Hudson’s strong track record of incubating Independent Power Producer (IPP) businesses in other regions of the world, and leveraging the recent acquisition of their first solar assets in Japan, they were looking to further increase their activity in the Japanese market. This would entail acquiring solar and onshore wind assets to become the seeds of a new IPP platform they are establishing in Japan — as a springboard to APAC — called Hudson Pacific Power (HPP).
Based on recent challenges relating to the development of renewable energy projects and frequent negative media headlines, there is a general bearish consensus amongst many participants on the future of Japan’s renewables sector. In addition, numerous foreign market players have entered, and subsequently exited, the Japanese market since the inception of the feed-in-tariff program in 2012. As a result, many candidates perceive foreign players as transitory in nature and are hesitant to join such companies. Given these circumstances and an already limited pool of suitable candidates in the market, HCCR anticipated some of the main risks to the execution of this search to be:
- Longer than normal delivery lead times
- Smaller sampling of short list candidates vs. other market norms
- Additional “courtship” required by the client to attract talent
- Wage inflation due to perceived market risks
