Meet Mayra Martinez

Founder & Executive Recruiter/Headhunter

I have over 15 years experience in building dream teams internally for two of the largest non-union electrical contractors in the nation. My passion and strategic expertise enabled these companies to increase revenue by 400% and hire an average of 1.5k employees per year - and I want to do the same for you. During this time I met a construction headhunter guru, Marc Sablow. He became my mentor and uttered the words that would later became my professional purpose: “You’re beyond a talent acquisition expert - you’re a headhunter at heart.” With this in mind, M Squared (a nod to MM, my initials) was created.

I am very passionate about connecting with people. People give me purpose - both personally and professionally. Life is about relationships. To me, it's the "401k" for a meaningful life. I´m a strong believer that meaningful relationships and integrity make all the difference. My goal is to meet the needs of my clients - companies and candidates - while leaving them with a smile on their faces.


I have over 20k connections in the construction space alone and have intimate knowledge of the market with positions that will never be found advertised and candidates who only trust me to represent them on their confidential employment searches. To put it plainly, I am your secret weapon - and I can close out your search faster than the average recruiter.

At M Squared, we want to enable you to not only find your dream candidate or position, but to be able to successfully balance your career with your home life. Whether it is through personalized career coaching and guidance to land your ideal role or headhunting the perfect candidate for your company to build dream teams and increase your profitability.

Let’s start with a conversation to see how M Squared can help you reach your next goal.

How We Work

How We Work

1. Consult

First we consult with you to fully understand the role, develop and implement the strategy for candidate attraction, write the job profile and key criteria and identify target organizations.

2. Headhunt

Next, we headhunt and assess every candidate to determine if they are the right fit, and facilitate a weekly call to discuss our progress.

3. Present




After that we present the top recommended candidates, schedule and support the interview process, and facilitate a debrief of all final candidates.

4. Select

The final step is to assist you in assessing the final candidates and then notifying the selected candidate. We then oversee salary negotiations on your behalf.


Clients Love Us...

In a tough and competitive market, I was looking for a unicorn candidate to fill an open role but I had no luck doing a self-search. M Squared was not only able to provide the single winning candidate, but they were able to deliver very quickly. I will 100% be looking to work with Mayra and the whole M Squared team again.
