Carol Crawford

Managing Director

Carol Crawford, Calibrate Legal’s Managing Director, is committed to elevating senior level professionals by maximizing their leadership potential. With over two decades of experience strategically leading the law firm HR function, she has developed a deep understanding of both the practice of law and the business of running a law firm. She brings this knowledge and insight into the conversations and decisions that drive her every day work.

As a client advisor, she partners with law firm leaders to equip them and their teams with the tools they need to be and lead the change needed to propel their firms into the next-generation of legal services. In her role as an executive search consultant, Carol focuses on placing senior-level professionals in HR, Recruiting and Talent Development in law firms. 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 strategic human capital support. As a result, Carol brings an added perspective from outside the legal community, particularly in the areas of coaching and leadership development.
