From assessing staffing needs for newly built or expanding estates to finding talented, experienced candidates for existing homes, Maribeth has an instinct for making perfect matches that lead to happy households. She lives with her husband, Tom, and their dog, Daisy, in Southampton.
What led you to Meadow Lane Staffing?
I had known David Crimmins for 15 years, when I worked with private staff agencies in my career as a Personal Assistant, House Manager, and Estate Manager. He was so different – down-to-earth, honest, a pleasure to work with – and he always had terrific candidates. When he offered me the opportunity to join Crimmins Staffing as a recruiter I leapt at the chance. Meadow Lane is our newest venture, catering specifically to our clients and candidates in and around the Hamptons.
What makes a great client?
Communication is everything. The more I understand the client’s lifestyle and what they prize in an employee, the better match I can make.
What makes a great candidate?
We have an expression: Is this an “on-time professional” – someone who is serious about their career, and takes pride in their work? And do they have good judgment and the gift of anticipation – the ability to think a few steps ahead to provide the best possible service?
What sets Meadow Lane apart?
We have respect for the all the good that can come from this process – keeping it professional, but also making the selection and hiring experience as caring and fair as possible for all parties.
What sets you apart as a recruiter?
In my career I have been both a client and a candidate, so I know how Hamptons households are unique. I understand both the 5-star expectations at the “front of the house,” and the type of skills and amount of staff required to keep these homes running at peak performance.
