Welcome David MacPherson to Bedford Group

The Bedford Consulting Group (Bedford) is pleased to welcome David MacPherson as the firm’s newest partner. David will lead Bedford’s Global Power and Industrial practice from our Ontario offices.

David brings over 20 years of senior executive search experience, focused on identifying and placing outstanding leaders for his clients in energy and technology. He has successfully completed engagements in the areas of:

  • Software engineering and solutions for distributed energy resource management systems;
  • Smart grid services;
  • Infrastructure software and devices;
  • SCADA, EMS/ADMS software;
  • Substation networking and communications devices;
  • Energy management services; and,
  • Automation software products and services.

A key market-focus for David has been the global electricity sector, which is in the early stages of its most dramatic transformation in over a century. The rapid expansion of distributed energy, combined with the newfound availability of data and analytics for utilities, will reshape how the world generates, distributes and consumes power. The majority of David’s assignments have been global in nature, including senior technical/commercial roles for SME and Fortune 500 companies in Atlanta, Boston, Singapore, Leeds (UK) and Bangalore. Many of the candidates he has placed continue to hold senior positions with these organizations years later, proving that he has the ability to understand the key elements of fit from both the candidate and client side of the equation.
