Maureen’s talent and enthusiasm for helping clients find the right fit is evident in every aspect of her dealings. She has a knack for distilling the various facets of a business, from a company’s overall culture to the minute details of a specific job’s requirements, to identify the best candidates. Maureen’s collaborative approach in working with decision-makers for their executive search, contingent, or long-term special projects is appreciated throughout the industry. Her clients admire her level of engagement and attention to detail, and they know they can rely on her with confidence. The high value she places on her business relationships, along with her business acumen, makes Maureen an ideal partner in pinpointing and fulfilling any business’ needs.
Drawing on her decades of experience in the business world, Maureen founded The Wilner Group in 2016 and is proud to have built a stellar team of employees who are smart, responsive, and highly accountable. Each team member’s mission is the same as her own: to ensure every client has the best possible experience working with The Wilner Group.
Before launching her firm, Maureen spent more than six years as a top producer at a global staffing agency, where she focused on the consulting arm of the practice and placed high-level finance and accounting professionals. Earlier in her career, she was a key member of the internal audit function of a multi-national company supporting operational audits from Canada to Argentina.
In 2020, The Wilner Group became a WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council). Maureen is proud to be a part of this national council, which validates that her business is owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from The Berkeley School. In addition to her business acumen and expertise, Maureen is a consummate hostess and loves to throw parties with her husband at their home, showcasing her masterful cooking skills. Her inventive dishes often feature homegrown vegetables and flowers from her garden. She also enjoys spending time with her two adult sons and their partners and her new grandson. Maureen loves the physical and mental energy she gets from exercising and continues to master her skills on the links. She also has an enormous amount of passion around personal growth and self-discovery and has been known to have two or three books on her nightstand at any given time.
