After working in energy trading and commodity price risk management for almost 10 years (AIG Trading Corp. and Sempra Energy Trading Corp.),  I saw an opportunity to leverage my experience to fulfill a much needed role in placing high caliber candidates in front- to back-office positions within the global energy community. Nineteen years ago, backed by a thorough understanding of the industry’s business models as well as a solid network of relationships throughout the industry, I co-founded a niche recruiting firm. Since 2000, I have partnered with industry leaders to build profitable teams and bring opportunistic hires.

In response to both game-changing developments within the energy sector and a fundamental paradigm shift in the overall recruitment process, I founded a new venture (A. Cullen & Associates, Inc.) in 2012 to ensure I was able to provide the solutions needed to meet the changing needs and requirements of hiring managers at all ends of the energy spectrum. Leveraging a combination of recruiting veterans from my initial venture and the talent and technology I gained via my firm’s acquisition of, I broadened our expertise to include areas such as SmartGrid, Fintech and AI. I continue to look for ways to enhance our service portfolio.
