I’m grateful to have the opportunity to work with Michelle Mariola. Michelle has been a coach and mentor to me over the past couple of years providing me valuable lessons and knowledge she has acquired over her years of experience. I’ve been the beneficiary of not only advice on handling building interpersonal professional relationships, but constructing my newly formed department and the metrics and goals I’m utilizing to measure and hold them accountable. Michelle has afforded me perspective I wouldn’t have had without her, and the growth I’ve experienced in the past year has been monumental.

My work involves coaching CEO’s and leadership teams. Over the years, I have referred Michelle Mariola, whenever a marketing opportunity arose. Whether it is a strategic or tactical marketing opportunity, I have had the confidence to suggest Michelle. In every case, my clients have been thrilled with Michelle’s work and in many cases, extended the engagement. When I had the opportunity to develop a new business recently, #2020BEYOND, the first thing I did was hire Michelle to do the marketing.

Our company launched a “formal” marketing strategy which included hiring a Marketing Manager and putting in place a significant plan for current and future marketing initiatives. Michelle has been our consultant from the beginning of the initiative and continues to be one of our guides as we push ahead with future steps.

The best part about Michelle is her work style. Besides being diligent and highly focused, she has a style about her that is easy and makes you feel like you can have confidence in your decisions. To this day, every decision that Michelle has helped us with has been a good one.

Michelle has given us a new way to look at our message both externally to the markets we serve and internally with our employees. Having very little experience in our industry, Michelle quickly developed an understanding of our brand and market position. She used that knowledge to develop an internal marketing strategy which has been recognized as best in class across our company which employs over 5,000 employees.

Michelle is not just a Marketing Professional, she is a Business Leader. I had the privilege of working with Michelle as a part of Vistage and found her to be intelligent, dynamic, a team builder and natural leader. Her ability to identify root cause issues and focus team members on true issues and eliminate the noise was invaluable to us all. Her greatest strength is her innate ability to blend seamlessly into any group or functional area setting and drive people beyond their comfort zone thereby enriching not just the individual members experience but the entire group.

I have had the great pleasure to work directly with Michelle Mariola during my 5 years with Ambius. Michelle’s branding of Ambius, while consistently being referred to as “beautiful, inspiring and inspirational”, also highlights the organizations value proposition and clearly promotes Ambius products and services. Michelle’s work on identifying the Ambius customer segments, building the Ambius brand key and analyzing the subsequent marketing trends is work that continues to bring success and brand recognition to the Ambius business. Michelle has mastered the ability to work in unison with heads of other departments, building a cohesive and successful business partnership with operations and other areas of the business. Anyone who works with Michelle will clearly see that she is confident, professional, creative and forward-thinking as well as an adept problem-solver; with her main aim to get the word out about Ambius and their products, services and best attributes. I have always found Michelle to be generous with her time, and a giving coach and mentor. I would highly encourage anyone to spend some time picking her brain as she is a true marketing innovator.

I have had the pleasure in working with, and for, Michelle over the last seven years. As well as being an outstanding marketing director, her insights into what a brand really means made Ambius into something special. Brand image is important, but Michelle’s understanding and development of the values that lie behind the image – distilling the essence of the business – was, in my mind, the thing that made the branding of Ambius such a success. Michelle brought considerable insight and knowledge into the company, which was critical to the success of developing the business and building customer engagement. Furthermore, she identified the critical relationship between happy customers and engaged colleagues and developed the environment in which colleague engagement could thrive. I have learned a lot from Michelle, over the years. As a manager and a colleague, Michelle broadened my horizons, enabled me to develop my career and gave me the opportunities to develop new talents and skills.

Michelle is a very talented marketing executive with a keen sense for identifying strategic opportunities that significantly improve performance. My firm, Lumeric Consulting, recently supported her in developing a needs-based segmentation market approach she conceived and is leading the implementation for Ambius globally.

When it comes to thinking outside the norm, Michelle can certainly come up with the concepts. The rebranding of Rentokil Tropical Plants to Ambius globally was her child from inception. The exercise not only gave Ambius a new name but gave it a new culture of flare, design and ingenuity. Michelle’s belief and passion helps her influence others around her to make it happen.
