Maureen is the managing director at The Hamblin Group, Inc. and a graduate of Boston College. After a couple years in software sales and customer service at an early stage consulting firm, she began her career at The Hamblin Group recruiting and placing technology sales and marketing professionals. She truly enjoys the coaching aspect of working with candidates early on in their professional careers. Maureen thinks the best part of her job is seeing someone whom she placed early on, ultimately become a hiring manager, for whom she recruits.

Incorporated in 1989, The Hamblin Group's professional approach to recruitment has resulted in thousands of successfully completed searches.
