    Marion is a true professional in recruiting, understanding and satisfying the customer’s needs. In the building a new fully fledged European head office from scratch, she was doing what was necessary to meet those needs. She was not bound by a time clock engaging with stakeholders throughout different time zones. She is one of my favourite recruiters because she is not only comparing the skill set with the job description but also weights the fitting of personality and motivation.
