Maryann McKenna

Maryann McKenna

Director – Legal Recruitment

Within minutes of meeting Maryann, it’s easy to see how much she loves what she does. Her positive, happy, kind and bubbly personality is infectious and the perfect match for her passion, hard work and professionalism.

Maryann has spent over three decades in the Perth human resources and recruitment industry. Before entering the recruitment world, Maryann spent 12 years as a human resources coordinator for the WA Department of Education, but always felt driven to the recruitment side. This drive led Maryann to lead the professional services recruitment team of a boutique firm for almost a decade and work within the Accounting & Finance team of one of the world’s largest recruitment firms, before making the move to legal recruitment in 2015.

This experience has seen Maryann establish strong relationships with some of the most prominent Legal and Accounting firms in Perth – just one of the many facets of her expertise that sets her apart.

After years of gaining experience and perfecting the art of recruitment, Maryann decided to step out on her own. She established Mckenna & Associates in August 2018, and hasn’t looked back.

Maryann has a genuine passion for helping candidates find the job they love, and firm owners find the right match for their team. Her experience, hard work, determination and somewhat conservative approach, enables her to deliver consistently outstanding results.
