Marie is the founder of FLEXImums, a recruitment and coaching consultancy, focused on empowering women and Hong Kong corporations to strive for gender equity and work-life balance.
Before devoting her time to FLEXImums, Marie started her career as an International Correspondent with the South China Morning Post, International Herald Tribune & The Asahi Shimbun meeting business leaders across Asia, Middle East, Europe and Canada. Driven by building relationships and connecting people, Marie went on building her network as the Communications & Business Development Manager with a leading international trade fair organiser across Asia.
After her daughter Arabelle was born in Hong Kong during 2014, she found herself in need of flexible yet challenging work and little to no options to choose from. This was the beginning of a new adventure, the birth of FLEXImums.
Marie together with her husband Sebastian and their two children, Arabelle and Jude, moved from HK island to South Lantau 4 years ago to combine the best of what Hong Kong has to give.
Why WIFA? Passionate about Diversity & Inclusion and Gender Equity, Marie joined WIFA and its Education Committee to support and inspire young female professionals as well as bring together industry professionals, men and women, for inspiring talks, panels and networking events in Hong Kong.
