Margy Judd, President & Owner
A native of the Greater Cleveland area, I am a city girl through and through. Grew up in the inner-ring suburb of Shaker Heights, moved to the westside of Cleveland after college (Edgewater Park neigborhood on the shores of Lake Erie), one year in an apartment in downtown CLE, then 22 years in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood with my late husband. In 2022 I returned full circle to Shaker, having met a fellow recovering widow and feeling lucky that the universe granted me a bonus round of love.
I love live music at small local venues like Beachland Ballroom, Music Box Supper Club, The Agora, Jacobs Pavillion or watching the curtain come up for a show (Playhouse Square) where I have been honored to be a board member since 2004. Love to travel in US and internationally so COVID years were tough on me!
I get energy from meeting the newcomers that EA sends my way and my professional and personal life are pretty much blurred together at this point; the people we help relocate to Cleveland/Akron are interesting, well-traveled, fun, and smart. I have made life long friends thru my connections at EA and they are people I have travled overseas with, shared meals at my home and who invited me to join their book clubs. My life would not be nearly as rich without all the people EA has introduced me to.
I’m an active member of In Counsel with Women was one of the seven founders and a member of the very first class of the Cleveland Bridge Builders; and a 2007 Leadership Cleveland graduate. I am active in a few industry groups related to recruitment and relocation including:
- Destination Cleveland (our region’s convention & visitor’s bureau)
- HR Leadership Group of NE Ohio (formerly NOHRPS)
- Greater Cleveland Partnership board member of both GCP and COSE Council of Smaller Enterprises (Cleveland’s chamber of commerce)
- Downtown Cleveland Alliance Talent Attraction & Retention Advisory Committee
