Co-Founder Utelias & Southview, former Country Director & GM, TESLA
"Marielle has had a huge impact on my career and performance. She invests and focuses on what is core to us or should be as professionals: self awareness about our skills, and internal drivers. She has helped me be more centered and empowered me in my current role. I now feel like I drive my own professional development instead of leaving it in the hands of others and I look at my choices wisely. She is an expert at “third culture” profiles who do not fit into typical company molds and helps you shape roles that add value to both parties in an ever changing competitive environment. I highly recommend her to any high level executive".

Además, su capacidad para dialogar y negociar en momentos críticos ha sido clave en la consecución de acuerdos de colaboración importantes. Totalmente recomendado recibir los servicios y apoyo de Marielle.

"Marielle is a very strong expert in he subject but is also an amazing coach: She has this ability to listen and interact in an empathetic manner, but then bring you back to remember your objectives and push you towards acting on them. She helped me understand what personal branding means and guided me to improve my online presence, always in a very positive and constructive environment.

Former Managing Director Latam, DIAGEO
Hired Marielle de Spa for a very tough search for a Tax Manager at Allied Domecq and she and Heidrick did a great job in finding a tax expert with strategic ability. I really like Marielle's hands on experience and personable contact with us. She is honest, direct and a truly great professional.
Dean of Advising Culver Academies, Education leader, Writer & Coach
Marielle and I stumbled into one another at just the right time in my life. As I was considering the possibility of an alternate future in my mid 40s, Marielle's understanding of adult Third Culture Kids like myself combined with her knowledge about the struggles that women in leadership positions are challenged to overcome served as a helpful backdrop for my own self-discovery. She was a phenomenal guide and an open-minded thought partner. Her work is current, relevant and always optimistic, and she genuinely believes in the power of her clients to make the change they seek. She remains a friend, and I am thankful for the role she played in my personal development.
Category Leader Worwag Pharma, GmBH &Co
For many years, I had been rather successful in my career but I reached a point where I felt I did not fit anymore and needed to reconsider my career. People kept telling me to get a coach but it just didn’t feel right for me. Luckily I came across Marielle as a career advisor specializing in multicultural profiles. I knew immediately she would get me. She actually did much more than that: she helped me work on my personal branding, a critical and difficult step in building who you want to be; she challenged me in my thinking and shared inspirational content to nourish my perspectives; she made me believe that being an out of the box candidate was valuable. Marielle has empathy and great listening skills while being sharp, concrete, pragmatic and not letting you get away with not being honest with yourself. I believe I would never have reached this level of reflection and clarity about what I can bring and where I can fit without her help. I warmly recommend any person in need of a career consultant, especially if they are multicultural, to work with Marielle.
Managing Partner, Heidrick & Struggles Mexico
I have enjoyed working with Marielle. She is one of the most professional executives I have ever worked with, and really after she left the company lost a very important asset. She is fluent in several languages, with a professional presence and culture, being able to establish rapport with people very fast.
Co-founder, New Chapter Executive Search consultants
"I was very satisfied with the input and advice I got from my adviser. As it happens, she had been a partner in a renowned Executive Search firm and performed a similar role to mine for several years. So she understood my goals.
The most valuable thing is she gives me support on how to negotiate with my clients, brush up my LinkedIn profile, and how to make a business plan, as I want to become a full consultant when I return to my country".
