Carol Crawford, Managing Director, leads the HR division of JJES with a focus on consulting to law firms and placing senior level professionals in HR, Recruiting and Talent Development positions. Carol has more than two decades of experience strategically leading the law firm HR function. She has a deep understanding of both the practice of law and the business of running a law firm, while her passion is leadership and the development of others.
Carol spent 17 years with McKenna Long & Aldridge, which grew during her tenure from a mid-size regional firm to an Am Law 100 firm with an international presence. She left McKenna in early 2014 to pursue an opportunity to serve as the VP of People Services at Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers, where she provided organizational guidance and oversight of all human resources functions, including leading their human capital strategy. As a result, Carol brings an added perspective from outside the legal community, particularly in the areas of coaching and leadership development, to her role at JJES.
While serving as an HR leader inside a law firm, Carol was active in the Association of Legal Administrators, the Society for Human Resource Management, Law Firm HR Roundtable, and the HR Leadership Forum. She holds a BS in Business with a concentration in Human Resource Management from Capella University. She maintains a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) designation through the HR Certification Institute as well as the Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) designation from the Society for Human Resources Management. Carol is licensed by RightPath Resources, Inc. and is certified as a facilitator and coach in their leadership and team development tools.
Carol resides in the suburbs of Atlanta where she enjoys travel, spending time with her grandchildren, hiking, camping and cultivating her flower and vegetable garden.
