Marcela brings her experience and skills of connecting with the “people we serve”, being this understanding a key element in the innovation process.
Marcela started her career in marketing managing brands for companies like Coca-Cola, Mars Inc. and Monsanto. Her inquisitive spirit led her to a path in market research, working in independent multifunctional teams for a variety of industries including food & beverages, consumer goods, real estate, technology, academia and others.
