In more recent years, Client Companies have paid Josh Rae (JPI and Associates / JPI Executive Search) more that $20,000,000 (twenty million dollars) in contingent and retained search fees. Josh has personally placed over 500+ C-Level, V-Level, Director Level and Business Development / Sales Executives within the Cleantech / Solar / Renewables and Construction Industries.

Client Companies and Corporations continue to entrust their hard earned money with Josh Rae based on two factors – trust and results.

According to, this places Josh Rae in the Top 1% of Executive Recruiters in the World by annual fees earned!

This is a true testament to Josh’s skill and ability to find not only the top talent for a client, even more so, finding the hidden talent; the top candidate who is happily employed and not looking for a better opportunity until presented to them confidentially, in a professional manner.

Candidates placed by Josh throughout the years are at ease by his professional approach and many have said, “Josh is unlike any Executive Recruiter I have worked with in the past, primarily due to the fact that he focuses on what is best for both the candidate as well as his clients; a professional matchmaker of sorts at the highest level.”

Josh started his own boutique executive search firm in August of 2003 – JPI and Associates, LLC, which is now called JPI Executive Search (

JPI Executive Search places candidates in both a retained and contingency fashion globally.

We specialize and have placed candidates primarily at, but not wholly limited to:

C-level (CEO, COO, CFO, CTO, CAO, CIO, CLO), V-level (Vice President of Sales/Operations/Engineering/Marketing/Manufacturing/Technology and Design, amongst others), Director level and General Management (G.M.) levels primarily within the Renewable Energy and Environment market sectors and secondarily within the Construction (General Contractors / Electrical Contractors / Specialty Contractors / Construction Management Firms / Architectural Firms and Consulting Engineering Firms) market verticals in both the U.S and abroad.

Further sub-niche search focus has revolved around:

Solar Energy / Photovoltaic specialty niche markets for both Solar Integrators and Solar Developers. Size and cross-section of clients that have retained our services has varied widely between embryonic stage start-ups looking to build an Executive Team to mature, multi-billion dollar conglomerates looking to increase market-share globally amongst cross-functional operating groups.

The success of JPI Executive Search is quite simple.

Josh really takes pride in the fact that he has built strong relationships with his clients, primarily due to the fact that he has worked hard to gain their trust by providing “the best human capital solutions in the world”; translating into “consistent results” and “increased market share and profitability” for his clients year after year.

Candidates seem to appreciate the professional, confidential and non-intrusive nature in which they are approached and presented opportunities which align with their respective career goals and aspirations.

Core values such as integrity, sincerity, humility, responsibility, honesty and quality of service have been the “hallmark” and the “cornerstone” in which JPI Executive Search has been developed around and built upon.

The ultimate “question” and “call to action” to all companies looking for quality talent and human capital and to all candidates looking for a gratifying career as opposed to just another job revolves around this:

Would you prefer to work with the top 1% of Executive Recruiters in the world?

Or, would you rather settle for the mediocre, frustrating experiences you’ve had in the past in dealing with unprofessional and ineffective recruiters and search firms?

We at JPI Executive Search and JPI and Associates, LLC sincerely believe the answer is clear and that your bottom-line will “Thank You” year after year.

Whether you are a client company or a candidate, we truly look forward to the privilege of helping you with your global search needs in the very near future.
