Moving across the globe as a shy 4th grader from Egypt to the United States, Marianne learned at very young age to be agile, to learn, to adapt, and to grow from all life's experiences. It was no doubt her strong family values that fostered her determination and strength to live, learn, and succeed in a whole new world.
Marianne's intelligence and determination were made obvious when as a 15-year-old a middle school student, she leapt straight into the role as a college freshman: being recognized by the state of Connecticut as the youngest student to enter college. As her life experience and education grew, she realized that she loved technology and leadership.
Following her passion for technology, Marianne earned an MIS degree at Central Connecticut State University, and then took her leadership skills and knowledge of technology to serve in a variety of roles within the world of Information Technology for the past 20 years. Having succeeded as a Developer, Programmer Analyst, Team Lead, Senior Product Owner and Corporate Vice President, she eventually landed at Tech Data, where she currently serves as an IT Manager. She is a results-driven servant leader, driven to boost revenues, while cutting company costs through innovative management techniques.
