Marianne Vermeer is motivated by making a difference -
for her clients, her family, and the world at large. She has started and grown companies and nonprofits concerned with creating impact as CEO, COO, CFO, Board Member, and Executive Director.
She came to social enterprise and impact investing early on with work in micro-enterprise and micro-finance in the Appalachian region, taking that interest into social venture capital globally and community development finance across the US.
As a consultant and C-level executive, she has advised and helped to lead fast growing companies, impact investors, government agencies, and non-profits on multiple strategic and tactical matters. Her passion for impact and sustainability is driven by her desire to help build organizations prepared to thrive and grow long after she's been involved.
Born and raised in the rural Midwest, Marianne earned her B.S. degree from Colorado State University and her M.B.A. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Her work and travels have given her a deep perspective of the need to consider culture and traditions in the growth and development of any organization. While she wishes she spoke many languages fluently, she's mastered "market" Urdu and Arabic. She is currently based in the Richmond, Virginia metro area where she resides with her family.
Vermeer Consulting Group believes in combining a concern for impact and change with the discipline of building strategies with financial sustainability. We bring integrity with honesty and candor to the conversations. Our satisfaction comes from seeing organizations thrive as a result of our work together.
