Author and Chief Talent Officer
Mary B. Lucas is an author, speaker and people connector. As the Chief Talent Officer for Supplemental Health Care, Mary and her team focus on creating solutions that enhance the talent experience and deliver efficiencies to the organization in the areas of talent acquisition and retention.
She often describes her more than 30 years of experience in the staffing and workforce management industry as experience in the “People Business.” Mary has coached individuals at all organizational levels to reach their performance goals through improved work relationships and now shares her experience through her speaking engagements.
In 2006, she published the highly successful book, Lunchmeat & Life Lessons, a motivational memoir and tribute to her father on how to bring out the best in yourself and others.
