MLB Associates was founded in 1994 by MaryLou Brown.  She has been a leader in guiding the staffing activities of many companies, agencies and service providers as they move toward integrating marketing across multiple customer contact channels. Clients include prominent global software/hardware corporations, major financial service institutions, many marketing agencies and service providers, as well as privately held specialty companies. She has recruited executives at all levels and typically continues the engagement to provide additional support staff. 

Prior to her 20 years in executive recruiting, MaryLou directed product development and marketing service functions in several industries: technology (IBM), financial services (KeyCorp) and publishing (a Scripps Howard subsidiary). As a slight diversion, she was director of technology for the XIII Winter Olympic Games and the founder/President of a database marketing services company.  MaryLou holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and English, and a master’s in counseling and statistics.

In 1999, Robin Anthony joined MLB Associates and is currently Vice President and Senior Recruiter.  Robin adds hospitality experience to their broad industry knowledge.   Robin excels at matching people and cultures, and brings a moral value to recruiting that is rare.   Her biggest successes come from filling newly created, upper-level roles, and building out teams from there.   Robin has been a contract recruiter with MLB for 18 years.

 MLB Associates is well-respected in the executive search business and we maintain a network of direct marketing recruitment professionals who we can call on when needed to meet larger projects or unique assignments.
