Fun Facts | Marcia

  • Marcia is a Swiss Miss by virtue of boarding school in Switzerland. She raced special slalom in the alps as a child.
  • Marcia’s first job was selling computers door to door in Denver, CO. She happened to knock on a recruiting firm’s door. Instead of selling them a computer, they recruited her to work for them and she never looked back.

Melanie Dabu

Bearing happy scars from leading recruitment within Executive Search, entertainment conglomerates, high-growth startups and midsize tech companies, Melanie believes in serving-up a “right-sized” approach. If she ever goes missing, she’s likely to be where the engineers are or in the kitchen, in pursuit of what makes her brain – and tummy – happy and healthy.

Fun Facts | Melanie

  • I'm freaked out by static shock, latex balloons and clowns. As a child, my TV time was ruled by Sesame Street, Star Trek and WWF. It explains a lot.
  • Parallelograms that don’t have 90 degree-angled corners make me uneasy. They’re just wrong.
  • I believe in parallel universes. There’s got to be one out there where ALL chocolate is good for you.
