Thank you to all of you who came to celebrate Marakon's 40th birthday with us last Thursday, 1st February.  The turnout was fantastic and the energy was high. It was heartwarming to catch up with old friends and a special pleasure to meet Marakon London's very first employee!  A great "Thank You" to those who came and sorry to have missed all of you who were not able to make it. Please see below some photos of the night, and let's keep the connection live via our LinkedIn Group "Marakon Employees and Alumni"

The partnership is unparalleled. Marakon helped us to develop the right strategic priorities and build-out the capabilities to deliver against them. In that way we were able to create significant value in the business in a relatively short time — disciplined value creation.
