Puzzle Consulting, Founder
Manuela Stamatović was born and educated in Switzerland. She studied business and marketing in Paris and acquired the title – master manager of European business and marketing.
She started working very early, which is typical for Switzerland. She got her first job at the age of 10 babysittings two girls every Wednesday afternoon when she wasn’t going to school. As a teenager, she worked in a supermarket on Wednesday afternoons, where her duties were cleaning and arranging shelves, stacking and replenishing goods, and similar tasks. That experience was of significant benefit to her when she started working at L’Oreal and engaged in product positioning on store shelves. She did not work during college because internships were very rare at the time – but she got a job at Coca-Cola very soon after graduation.
She has worked all of her careers within her goal profession: she is an expert in marketing, brand management, and corporate communications thanks to almost two decades of work experience in the consumer goods industry, banking, and aviation.
