"Gaia Human Capital Consultants is extremely consultative and highly execution focused, significantly well-connected and knowledgeable in all the cleantech markets"

"Technology alone will not necessarily attract world-class talent to companies, especially entrepreneurial in nature.  To compete for top-talent in a highly competitive market, a thorough and well-executed search for that talent is often the right course of action!"
