M3 Placement and Partnership recertified at WBE for the third time

This October, Capital Region based business M3 Placement and Partnership became recertified as a Women-Owned Business Enterprise for the third time.

“I am honored to have my work as a business leader recognized by the state of New York. I deeply admire the state’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and am so proud to be among the more than 7,000 recertified businesses since 2011,” said Mary Malone McCarthy, Founder and CEO of M3.

Over the past 12 years M3, an executive search and recruiting firm, has grown from a team of two to a team of 17 while serving clients nationally. In 2022 the company placed over 750 employees in new roles throughout the state. Today, the company is led by an all-female executive team who looks forward to continuing serve their clients and candidates.

“It’s amazing to work for a company that lifts up the voices of women leaders,” said Kathy Rowe, Vice President of Business Development. “With so many clients looking to ensure their business is equally distributed to businesses of all kinds, we are pleased to be able to meet the requirements of this certification.”  

In order to become a Certified Women-Owned Business Enterprise, M3 underwent a thorough certification process which included an in-depth business review. The WBE certification confirms that the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women.
