Before founding Empower Partnerships, MaryAnne served as the North American Director of Talent Acquisition for a Fortune 500 company, where she transformed the recruitment function, elevating it from a rating of 1 to 4 on the recruitment maturity model spectrum within three years, according to a CEB (now Gartner) assessment.
