Co-founder and CEO Ari Matusiak reached out for help in recruiting the initial leadership team for this new organization focused on building a retail-level movement to replace a billion machines in 121 million American homes with clean electricity. We set forth to recruit a team who could accelerate the ambition of the co-founders amidst the historic backdrop of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act. Rewiring was already having great influence and impact on this federal legislation, and their hiring plan had to catch up quickly as those laws moved into implementation. Within six months we had found the first set of outstanding professionals to guide the scale-up of this venture, and the team continues to grow.

Why I love this team: Rewiring America is a rocket ship. They are ‘electrify everything’ visionaries who seize every moment and operate with an unparalleled sense of urgency. They are true believers in the mission and they pursue it with gusto, a deep commitment to collaboration and a clear understanding of how to communicate about clean energy so most of us can hear it and take action. Their voice is accessible and often irreverent, while they are helping write the laws that will set our country – and our planet – on a positive new course.

“Cathy has been a consummate partner in finding and placing top flight candidates in mission critical roles. She was locked into our mission and needs, was rigorous and transparent in her approach and was aligned at every step in the process on not settling for anything less than the best talent and fit. Cathy became a trusted partner to me and to the team. I look forward to working with her multiple times again.” – Ari Matusiak, Co-founder and CEO
