We welcome our new Head of Consulting in Asia-Pacific
Cirrus is expanding across the Asia-Pacific region and we are delighted to welcome Professor Marianne Roux to the team as our new Head of Consulting.
Marianne is a global strategy, leadership and organisational development expert who is also Professor of Practice in Executive Development at the prestigious Monash Business School in Melbourne.
“What attracted me to Cirrus is working with Asia-Pacific Managing Director Alison Tickner, who I’ve worked with before, and the wider Cirrus team, to create innovative solutions for ambitious clients,” says Marianne. “Cirrus has tremendous expertise in consulting and coaching, fantastic project management capability, and an excellent digital platform in Strata to support learning journeys.”
Marianne brings extensive experience of HR leadership, consulting, and business school lecturing to the Cirrus team. She holds MA qualifications in organisational psychology and human resource management, and is currently working towards a PhD in leadership. She is also a highly qualified executive coach.
“I am able to combine my role as a business school professor with my consulting role at Cirrus to bring strong evidence based work and client-centric solutions together,” says Marianne. There is amazing opportunity for more significant projects across Asia-Pacific and globally, working closely with our Cirrus colleagues in the UK and other international locations.”
Marianne has worked across a very wide range of industries including mining, oil and gas, retail, FMCG, pharmaceuticals, sport, health, education, professional and financial services, infrastructure, ICT and not-for-profit. As a HR leader, she has driven major change initiatives at Woolworths Food in South Africa and at Cricket Australia. She has also held director and principal roles at Deloitte and Mercer as well as working as a consultant at PwC and Accenture.
She is passionate about helping leaders to transform organisations through accelerated learning that drives behavioural change.
Marianne is on the board of two international development organisations: The Edmund Rice Foundation Australia and YGAP, an entrepreneur accelerator. She also founded the Coalition of Female Social Entrepreneurs in Australia over a year ago to support immigrant female entrepreneurs.
