Marie Swarbreck (Founder of FLEXImums)Marie Swarbreck, Founder of FLEXImums

FLEXImums is a recruitment and coaching consultancy company, focused on empowering women and Hong Kong corporations to strive for gender equity and work-life balance. Before devoting her time to FLEXImums, Marie started her career as an International Correspondent with the South China Morning Post, International Herald Tribune & The Asahi Shimbun meeting business leaders across Asia, Middle East, Europe and Canada. Driven by building relationships and connecting people, Marie went on building her network as the Communications & Business Development Manager at a leading Lingerie and Swimwear trade fair

Driven by building relationships and connecting people, Marie went on building her network as the Communications & Business Development Manager at a leading Lingerie and Swimwear trade fair organizer with shows in Paris, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. She studied in Belgium, France, and the USA specializing in Communications, Events and International Business Management.

After her daughter Arabelle was born in Hong Kong during 2014, she found herself in need of flexible yet challenging work and little to no options to choose from. In between juggling a few jobs and raising Arabelle, Marie realised many parents in Hong Kong are talented professionals who would jump at the opportunity to work a flexible yet fulfilling job and a better work-life balance. This was the beginning of a new adventure, the birth of FLEXImums.
