About

Mary Matthews

Having founded her company CovenantES Partners in 2010, Mary has continued to be a discreet, concierge recruiter and advisor to the C-suite and boards of directors.

A native Floridian, Mary came to New York City as the first female in Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation’s Management Trainee program. After three years in industrial products, she moved into executive search for industrial and consumer products companies and commercial and investment banks. She later founded her own search consultancy in Boston and sold it after five years before returning to New York.  In time, Mary became a Senior Client Partner with Korn/Ferry International where she partnered with multinational food processing, industrial manufacturing and software technology corporations, or private equity investors, to recruit turnaround or transformation leaders. 

Mary’s most recent searches include a CFO for a NASDAQ traded healthcare software company, CHRO of a private label food company, president of the US subsidiary of a global fruit innovation company, CEO of a global German pizza and ingredients public company, and CEO of a food innovation supplier to the dairy markets in the US. 

In her free time Mary serves on the vestry of her church, collaborates on operations for the Rev. Louie Matthews Teaching Garden, and sings in the choir.  She enjoys classical, jazz and gospel music, off-Broadway theater, and collecting art. Committed to physical fitness, she walks the distance of a marathon monthly and loves being mother to her daughter, a lawyer in New York.
