Update Your Lisa Dean Records!

Lisa Dean

Lisa Dean

The recruiter formerly known as Lisa Dean is now Lisa Mamula. Although Lisa, Willory’s director of client relations & staffing, officially changed her name yesteryear following her 2013 nuptials, she is now ready to change her name professionally.

Lisa decided against professionally changing her name until now because of the transition from THRD to Willory. She wanted to ensure her clients knew who to contact at Willory and had as smooth of a transition as possible. Now, almost two years after the acquisition it’s time for her professional life to meet with her personal life.

She has over fifteen years of staffing experience with a balanced approach to managing her client and consultant relationships. Lisa held prior HR Generalist and Specialist roles with prominent organizations in manufacturing, distribution and retail. Her practical knowledge of HR has allowed her to effectively relate to the professionals she works with on a daily basis.

“The acquisition of THRD has been seamless, largely in part because of Lisa’s dedication to her clients and profession. We are able to deepen our commitment to providing Northeast Ohio’s HR and payroll communities with excellent service because of Lisa’s passion,” says Willory’s Founder and President John Bernatovicz.

Lisa expertly works with each client to develop a deep understanding of what makes each organization and open position unique. In 2014, Lisa had the most amount of temporary placements among the Willory Team and was the top performing in terms of gross margin.

In fitting with Willory’s love of golf, Lisa met her husband, Ronnie, at a golf course. Their family also consists of four children, all teenagers. They live in Hudson, Ohio.

And, in case you’re wondering, it’s pronounce “MAM-YOU-LA.”
