When Talent Matters Most


“Mary joined SimpliVity as we entered hyper-growth stage. She led our Talent Acquisition efforts, helping us expand our headcount > 10x, reaching a total global workforce of ~750. Mary is resourceful, energetic, focused, and has the capabilities to engage with and evaluate key talent, critical to a scaling organization. She builds very effective relationships with internal leadership and ensures candidates understand the opportunity and make the right career decision.

I am now leading a new startup (still operating confidentially), and Mary/Alora Search Partners is a key recruiting partner.”

Doron KempelCEO, Confidential Startup (Former CEO, SimpliVity)

“I had the pleasure of working with Mary during some very exciting rapid growth years at iRobot. Recruiting high performing talent was a key enabler of the business’ success. Mary routinely delivered candidates, in a very competitive market, that were strong matches for our business from both technical and cultural perspectives. I quickly learned to trust her judgement and intuitions in all areas of talent recruitment and management.”

Jeff BeckCEO, Former President iRobot Home Robots Division and Corporate COO.

“I’m very excited about the role and looking forward to starting quickly. Thank you for all your efforts on my behalf! As you know, I’ve talked to a lot of recruiters in the last year and you have been far and away the most informed, responsive and helpful. The coaching leading up to the interviews, help defining a starting point for salary negotiation etc. were all great and very much appreciated. ”

“It was great to meet you Mary! With all the excitement, I did forget to express how much we appreciate your engagement with us late last year. I felt the recruitment process could have fallen apart on several occasions. But your vision, domain expertise, and the hand-holding on occasion, led to this successful outcome and a fantastic career step for both of us. You are for sure the best recruiter I’ve ever worked with! ”
