Marlene de Varona


“What makes V2A special is its unique group of talented people. I truly enjoy the diverse range of talent at V2A where you can always learn something new. In addition, many at V2A have other interests outside of consulting whether they be professional, entrepreneurial or philanthropic. As the meaning of V2A implies, from Vision to Action, these are people that are actively pursuing their dreams or converting their ideas into action.”
