Margy Judd, President & Owner
I’m a native of Northeast Ohio and although I grew up in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland I am a city girl thru and thru and love my walkable, front porch friendly Cleveland neighborhood of Tremont just 10 minutes south of downtown and am thrilled that a growing number of EA newcomers are choosing urban neighborhoods when they relocate to our town. After spending a year renovating a century home in Tremont my late husband and I realized we didn’t know many of our neighbors so we founded the Tremont Trek house tour, in 2002 and it’s still the best damn progressive dinner party/house tour in Cleveland (I’m hardly subjective on this matter).
I’m a lifelong traveler and am never happier than when I’m planning my next trip to explore the world (most recently Croatia, Madrid and Costa Rica). A month is not complete to me unless I have seen live music in a small intimate venue or see a show at Playhouse Square, our performing arts district (where I’ve been a board member for years). I love meeting the newcomers that EA sends my way and pretty much my professional and personal life are blurred together at this point because the people we help relocate to Cleve/Akron are interesting, well traveled, fun, smart people and I love meeting them all!
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’m a lifelong learner, adore reading and have been in the same book club for 10+ years (started by one of the women EA helped relocate to Cleveland!). I’m also active in a few industry groups related to recruitment and relocation including:
- Destination Cleveland (region’s convention & visitor’s bureau)
- NEORR (Northeast Ohio Relocation Roundtable)
- Association for Corporate Growth, Cleveland chapter
- HR Leadership Group of NE Ohio (formerly NOHRPS)
- Greater Cleveland Partnership board member of COSE- Council of Smaller Enterprises – (Cleveland’s chamber of commerce)
- Downtown Cleveland Alliance Talent Attraction & Retention Advisory Committee
I couldn’t be happier to lead my amazing team of co-workers who are the best in the world at attracting and welcoming newcomers to a city.
