In these two situations, Marie was faced with owners and senior managers who were all male and all quite skeptical of her experience and abilities. Marie, in both cases, took charge and made significant progress and implemented a number of positives changes, in spite of the resistance she met at the beginning of the engagements.

-Bruce Carlyle, Senior VP Gulf Pacific, Inc.

Marie Manvel has worked closely with us over the past several weeks, providing us the needed tools to get our company moving in the right direction. Marie worked closely with Dr. Jacobs and myself in the preparation of Key Staff members job descriptions and has done an excellent job in training management to develop the needed Job descriptions for the departments.

-Director of Consulting, Gulf Pacific, Inc.

Marie was hired by me as a Staff Consultant for our company, a professional business development firm. She was hired to perform as a business consultant for clients engaging our services. She was comfortable and effective in her dealings with the CEO and senior management in the companies where she was assigned projects. She was one of the best that I observed in recent times, in analyzing client problems, then quickly and effectively developing and implementing solutions. She was knowledgeable, appeared very comfortable and performed well in every functional area she was assigned responsibilities – sales/marketing, operations, financial, or administrative. Her understanding of executive management, her ability to communicate and train senior level managers as well as this subordinates was rater outstanding by me and her clients. Her overall job performance was outstanding.

-Bruce Carlyle, Senior VP Gulf Pacific, Inc.

Marie Manvel worked full time at Reynard Corporation for the next 5 weeks implementing the various recommendations. It was not an easy task and she did an outstanding job. It would have been impossible for me to implement the needed changes because I was too busy and to close to the company.

-President, Reynard Corp.

Marie was thorough in her work and had an extremely positive impact on my business. I look forward to her completing the remainder of the job program, as a matter of fact; there is no one else that I would consider to consult with me on business operations.

-President, Micro-Trim

My first experience with a consultant was a bit overwhelming. I then had a chance to work with Marie Manvel. Marie was much easier to communicate with that the previous consultant. She clearly understood the challenges facing the company and addressed them in a way that made sense to me. Ms. Manvel exceeded my expectations.

-President, Micro-Trim

“It is my pleasure to recommend Marie Manvel; she is a highly accomplished leader with strong marketing and operational skills. She is a results-oriented, decisive leader with proven success in managing both top line sales and bottom profits. She is a self-starter, with proven track record of multi-unit management, marketing, P&L management, and strategic planning. I had the honor of working with Marie during full tenure at RMI and following her career after and I truly believe that she would make an extremely positive asset to any team.”

-Billy Bryant, VP of Sales, Rotonics

Marie is a very focused professional that has always had a firm grasp on her role and responsibilities at Gulf Pacific. Her dynamic and positive approach took her from Senior Consultant to Senior Vice President in a short time. I worked with Marie on a number of projects while she was a Senior Consultant for our firm. She quickly developed a great rapport with her clients. Her efforts assisted clients to improve productivity, streamline many business processes and increase profitability.

Marie was promoted to Senior Vice President of E-Commerce for the firm and developed the department from scratch. As a member of the senior corporate staff Marie worked effectively with other staff and contributed greatly to improve Gulf Pacific’s efforts to provide quality support for our clients.

I would recommend Marie for any role that needs a very bright, dynamic and experienced professional manager.”

-Bruce Carlyle, Sr. VP Ecommerce, Gulf Pacific

I give Marie Manvel my highest recommendation. She is an extremely bright and capable executive who can take a project from start to finish. On top of that she is a caring person and dedicated to whatever she commits herself to at work and in her volunteer work as well. Ms. Manvel will make an excellent addition to whatever group she aligns herself with.”

In many instances, I was very aware of her personal integrity and loyalty to her family. Her willingness to forgo personal and career aspirations in order to assist her mother as she aged I found to be a most admirable trait. I consider Marie to be truly an outstanding individual and friend in my life. She has been loving, caring, and unselfish to me and people I see her with.

She  has volunteered her time, resources, talent, and expertise in our young church and is devoted to our church. She has always respected my authority and relationship as a pastor and has never challenged my role. She has also been a generous contributor and I have seen the sacrificial was she lives financially always thinking of others. She has offered her apartment for guests, given away artwork that she painted and she has made financial contributions to the poor.”

“I admired your honesty and your high moral standards, whatever we were doing, and wherever we were. I could relax when I was around you because I know that you were not going to talk against anyone or any of the organizations that we attended together. You had something nice to say about them, or you just didn’t say anything. It seemed like you just always wanted to help keep things running peacefully. I noticed some unfair this people did to you, but you have such a forgiving nature, Marie, you are such a great example to those who truly know you. I am trying to be more like you.”
