“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Marianne and the Catalyst team for many years on numerous projects. With their combination of creativity and analytical skills, they are instrumental in clearly communicating expectations and maintaining project momentum. The Catalyst team's broad experience brings a solution-oriented, technically proficient approach, and their detailed timeline and financial analyses keep projects on track.

”The Catalyst Team has been a prime facilitator behind our exponential growth over the past three years. Their team of engaged, cross-functional professionals has contributed at every given opportunity, from business & brand development, formula validation & testing, logistics management, to eCommerce marketing.
Their ability to quickly identify, address and solve the myriad of development & production issues we encountered has proven to be second to none. Outsourcing our brand development to Catalyst Beauty has not only proven to be a cost effective & efficient solution for Santalis Pharmaceuticals, it has accelerated the development of our value proposition & positioned us for prime opportunities within the H&B market.” – Jim Traa, MBA, COO, Santalis Pharmaceuticals
“I’ve worked with Marianne as both a Service Provider as well as a Business Colleague. As a consultant for us, she brought an objective perspective and provided Guthy-Renker with thoughtful and analytic operational advice. In a separate business dealing when she represented a product developer who was seeking a deal from my company, she was a tenacious and thorough advocate for her client and secured for him a strong deal. While we were more pleased to have Marianne on our side of the table than to find ourselves across the table, she was strategic, professional, and enjoyable to work with both ways.” - Dirk van de Bunt, EVP & Chief Administrative Officer, Guthy-Renker
“Marianne is one of the most creative and tenacious people in concept development and implementation I have met. She can source, design, and adapt concepts to solve problems, and excels at multi- tasking. I look forward to working with her on future opportunities." - Neil Goeren, Advisor, Falls River Group, The Former Vice President of Innovations, Bath & Body Works
“Marianne is a pleasure to work with. She quickly grasps the concept and goal and builds toward completion. She has in-depth experience, giving her all kinds of contacts and quick access to problem solutions and ways over or around obstacles. Marianne understands meeting the bottom line both in costs associated with the project and on time delivery of the product(s) or service. Marianne is a team player and offers all she can to make her project work in sync with the rest of the organization. Marianne will also tell you the way it is whether she thinks you will agree or not - Marianne is not a politician. She will follow your direction but freely offer alternatives that are usually better.” — Phil Rose, Former President and CEO, Obagi Medical Products
