“What’s your story Marianne?”
Hello, who are you and what brought you to INVERTO?
I am Marianne Kaas Fürst, 33 years old, raised and born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and mother of two children, named Benedicte and Harald. I studied Business Administration and Commercial Law at Copenhagen Business School where I graduated in 2011. After my graduation I have worked as a consultant at Deloitte and Prokura as well as several years at Maersk where I lately was Global Head of Strategic Sourcing – the internal procurement consulting department.
For me, Procurement is one of the most interesting areas to work in and at INVERTO, procurement is the core business which I really find inspiring. INVERTO is on such a growth journey in the Nordics and being a start-up-minded procurement consulting company as well as having BCG in the back gives a lot of great learnings and unique opportunities. Overall, I found this combination as a great next step in my carrier.

What are you doing at INVERTO?
I am a Principal in the Danish office where I am involved in a lot of acquisition work (e.g. sales pitches and client meetings) as well as delivering on projects. My last project was an opportunity assessment on inbound logistics of raw material. Further to this, I am part of the Competence Center on Sustainable Procurement.
Do you have a special ritual at work and why do you like it?
Always say hi and goodbye to everyone in the office. I love spending time with my colleagues and not always do we manage to have a lot of time together. By just saying hi and goodbye you still show you care about one another.
Which concert have you visited lastly and how was it?
My last concert was with Elton John several years ago – and I cannot wait to go to my next!
You found the job of your dreams at INVERTO, of course – if INVERTO wouldn`t exist, what would have become of you and why? Any hidden dreams?
For sure a doctor. I would love to cure people and understand all mechanisms in the body.
