This constant intercultural exposure and responsibility for international topics and -teams as well as her educational expertise in advocacy, negotiation tactics and persuasiveness, has exposed her to various change- and transformation topics throughout her career.
Due Marion's in depth cultural and emotional understanding of people and their drivers, excellency in leadership combined with her strategical skills in driving organizational change and success, she has then more and more exposed herself to HUMAN RESOURCES topics and has served for over 8 years as Group Executive for Human Resources & Legal Affairs.

During her career Marion's constant topic was CHANGE: she has conducted manifold change management projects, business transformations, market openings / closures, organizational modernization and -restructures as well as various corporate cultural- and leadership change programs.
What though was and is by far most meaningful to her in her office, is the daily interaction with human beings: Whether consulting, sparring, coaching, mitigating, developing, mentoring or simply giving a helping hand: It is the human relationship which makes us succeed or not, in every personal or corporate environment!
