Marion retired from an International Marketing role based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands 10 years ago. Her career was focused on marketing and general management, holding the position of Divisional Managing Director within the UK organisation of Philips for a number of years prior to moving to The Netherlands.
Marion has worked in a number of voluntary roles since retiring, locally for Ashtead Good Neighbours and then as an advisor for The Citizens Advice Bureau. Her work in CAB made her aware of the benefits system and the impact of government policy both for the better or worse. Marion believes that if we want to change things we have to engage and take an active part, and is hoping to bring some ideas and give time to help the Conservative party locally.
