Retired as of December 2021
Former Principal & Co-Owner
As of December 2021, Karen Farrington, the former co-owner and founder of Matura Farrington Staffing Services, has retired. A message from Karen:
Matura Farrington has been my life’s work and I am so proud of the company that Gary Matura and I founded almost 30 years ago. In that time, we have had the opportunity to work with many outstanding, loyal, and dedicated employees who have helped build our company to be recognized as a leader in recruiting and staffing. Together, we have had the pleasure of providing our services to thousands of companies and candidates to form successful work relationships. Although I will no longer have the daily joy of watching our team deliver the best in class recruiting and staffing services, I know that Matura Farrington will continue to thrive and remain successful under the tenure of Gary Matura. I would also like to thank Gary for being the greatest partner anyone could ask for in the business world; you are an amazing leader to your employees, clients, and candidates.
Ms. Farrington received her Bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University and earned a certificate in Paralegal Studies from the University of San Diego. She began her legal career as a paralegal and legal administrator in Washington D.C. where she worked for two prominent national law firms. A native of California, she relocated back to Los Angeles in 1993 and began her recruiting career with a staffing firm owned by Gary Matura. Soon after, she partnered with Mr. Matura to form Matura Farrington in order to create a staffing firm that would merge their broad spectrum of talents and provide their clients and candidates with the very best recruiting experience.
In addition to her nearly three decades of legal recruiting where she has personally participated in the direct-hire and temporary placement of hundreds of candidates, Ms. Farrington oversaw the operational structure of the Company. She committed herself to developing operations that met the highest standards in order to serve and protect the Company’s employees, candidates and clients. She was particularly adept in the areas of human resources and employment law compliance. In support of this commitment, she earned the designation of “Certified Staffing Professional” from the American Staffing Association. She was a member of the American Staffing Association and its California chapter, as well as a member of the Los Angeles Paralegal Association. Additional organization involvement included former membership with the executive coaching and business leadership organization Vistage. Ms. Farrington is proud of the reputation she, Mr. Matura, and their team of outstanding recruiters and staff have earned in the legal and business communities of Southern California.
