Mary Malone is the founder and CEO of M3 Placement & Partnership, an executive search and strategic HR firm. As a certified MWBE, she and her team partner with companies nationwide, to lead executive searches, talent recruitment efforts, employee retention programs, and strategic HR projects. When she began M3 she did so with the conviction that when employees are fulfilled and cared for they are better able to care for their families and their communities and in turn, our world. This purpose has led to significant growth for the organization and continues to fuel each member of the team to wake up each day and care for all of their stakeholders.

In 2020 she began her podcast, “Moments with M3” to share stories of how to lead a purpose driven life and build an organization that works for all stakeholders. Mary Malone believes when individuals are fulfilled at work, they are energized to create better organizations and a more fulfilling life in their communities and their homes.

This passion for a purpose driven life has led Mary Malone to become a part of the Conscious Capitalism Senior Leader Network, a global network of business leaders, entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs dedicated to Conscious Capitalism. In addition, she is working to bring this form of stakeholder capitalism to her community, founding the Upstate Chapter of Conscious Capitalism in Albany.
