About CMA



Founded in 1992, Career Management Associates (CMA) initially serviced the greater Portland, ME market, primarily by providing individual career assessment and coaching services.

Services Expanded

By the mid-1990’s, CMA was offering corporate outplacement, executive search, and executive coaching services. Professional contract employment rounded out the offerings by the late-1990’s, with expansion continuing across many industries.

New Location

In 2007, the firm formally entered the New Hampshire and Vermont markets through its new affiliation with Lincolnshire International (LI) and Arbora Global, together boasting more than 200 independently owned and operated outplacement/coaching firms, worldwide. This continued affiliation allows CMA to enjoy all the benefits of a large, multinational consulting firm, while maintaining local roots and providing personalized service to our clients.

HR Services Offered

In 2009, under new ownership and in response to client needs, Career Management Associates added HR Services to its growing portfolio. This service supports our clients’ existing HR departments and assists companies that do not have an HR presence, by designing and customizing HR solutions. A new website was launched which outlined new and established services as well as the introduction of our new office in Bedford, NH. Technology initiatives led to Career Workspace, an online career portal for job seekers, and several HR compliance webinar-training modules.

Unprecedented Growth

In 2010, CMA increased its services and program offerings to better support our clients’ expanding needs. A strong social media presence was introduced through blogging, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to remain in constant contact with our clients and the business community.

New Corporate Headquarters

In 2011 and 2012, with our services and program portfolio becoming more robust and with continued growth in client business relationships, CMA expanded its professional staff and moved into a larger office on Congress Street in Portland. Career Management Associates has proudly combined technology and expertise to provide the most effective and personalized HR services in Northern New England.

Power Hour Radio Show

CMA’s growth continued in 2013 and 2014 with the launch of the HR Power Hour radio show . CMA’s President David Ciullo hosts this HR educational radio program that is dedicated to all things in the Human Resources world. Regional, national and international guests educate the audience on current and relevant HR topics as well as they provide valuable insight into Human Resources Management today.

Dale Carnegie Maine Aquired

An exciting acquisition and powerful global brand is added to the CMA family. The Dale Carnegie Maine franchise dramatically expanded CMA's training in corporate solutions. In addition, new digital live online solutions and public courses in sales, leadership, interpersonal, and high impact presentation skills were added to assist our clients and individuals.

Kevin M. Healey

Kennebec Savings Bank has used many services provided by CMA. Executive recruitment, career counseling for employees, AAP support and Human Resources consultation. I am pleased with the quality of their work and I don’t hesitate to recommend their services to other HR professionals. CMA is Maine’s “home Town” team when it comes to providing professional HR services.

David Pease

CMA is my go to HR advisor when we need extra hands, eyes or minds to work on an employment related situation or project. I work with CMA in a highly collaborative partnership – we look at our organization’s vision and strategic plan, create a plan that is aligned and customized. I trust the team and am very satisfied with the work and results!

Allison Briggs

CMA is a fabulous trainer: knowledgeable, energetic, and practical! They delivered communication skills training to 30 of our hotel department managers, and the feedback we received was terrific. We certainly will request them back again.
