"Madeleine is wonderful to work with, she is proactive and efficient, also very conscientious in her approach. I have met few people with her drive, zest for success and comprehensive knowledge of marrying opportunities, people and companies. She has a motivational personality, yet very thoughtful and sensitive. Her strategic insight and leadership are instrumental in her success. It was a pleasure to work with her."
