Women of emnos Series: Marion Schwarz
This week, we are excited to feature our Director of Client Engagement, Marion Schwarz.
- Where did you start your career ?
I started my career as an intern at emnos Iberia. I was studying in Spain at that time and got introduced to emnos through my university. This is where I discovered my passion for customer-centricity and data – which has been the central theme of my career ever since. I worked for PAYBACK GmbH (an American Express-owned company) for almost 6 years, implementing coalition loyalty programs in Mexico and the US.
- When did you start at emnos? What brought you here?
I rejoined emnos in 2016 to run the business development efforts in the DACH region. I was attracted by the opportunity to help retailers leverage the full potential of data through emnos tools and services and the unique culture that I already experienced during my initial internship at emnos.
- What unique perspective does your experience bring to your leadership role and the company?
I worked with retailers throughout my career which allows me to better understand their needs and to address them in a more meaningful way. Working abroad for almost 5 years has taught me a lot about cultural differences, the power of human connection, and how to adjust and make decisions in an unknown environment. To me, these are essential traits to thrive and make an impact in a start-up environment such as emnos.
- What do you love most about your job?
The people! Working with a talented and motivated team is what gets me out of bed every morning. At emnos I found an environment that inspires and challenges me at the same time, allowing me to grow professionally and personally.
- What advice would you give to your younger self?
Trust the process.
