On Monday, March 31, 2014, Trinity Hall welcomed Mary Clare Garber, principal with Princeton Legal Search Group LLC, as the sixth speaker in our “Women in Leadership” series.
Mary Clare spearheads the strategic direction and leadership of the marketing function for the recruitment and placement of exceptionally qualified attorneys in three markets: law firms, corporate law departments and higher education institutions. She sets strategic direction and planning for the organization and actively participates in the growth strategy.
Mary Clare has held a variety of Human Resource positions and has directed the Human Resource function for such companies as Medco Containment Services (now Express Scripts) and the Capital Markets Group of Shearson Lehman (now Morgan Stanley Smith Barney). She serves on the Board of Directors for Executive Women of New Jersey and chairs its Scholarship Committee. She also serves on the marketing committee for the Association of Corporate Growth (ACG) and Association of Corporate Growth – Women of Leadership Steering Committee.
Mary Clare previously served on the board of the Hopewell Keroka Alliance and has been asked to serve on the Global Connections board. Both boards are actively involved in the multicultural awareness and assimilation process between Kenya and the United States. Her personal interest in diversity and awareness is fundamental to her professional support and interest in the Minority Corporate Counsel Association.
Mary Clare has a Masters degree and graduated with distinction from Rider University. She received her undergraduate degree from Lesley University with a B.S. in human services and a minor in economics. Her economic classes were completed at Harvard University. She also completed American University’s Washington Semester Program in Criminal Justice.
Through a card game of “Deal Me In,” Mary Clare helped our students discover potential career paths that matched with their current skills and interests. “Your career path is beginning now,” she told students. “You’re already on the path to who you’re going to be.”
