    I have had the pleasure of working with Marion for a few years now and always found her to be an outstanding professional. She goes at length to understand her client’s requirements as well as the candidates. Marion has a remarkable approach to the her business, genuinely international experience, good ear and eye for the candidates and versed in international recruiting. Bottom line ? Marion won’t just push candidates for the sake of it and will not send for an interview someone that hat she would consider second best.

    I appreciate Marion as a very professional Headhunter.

    Attorney, Consultant, Head of Board

    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.
