Marcela is the National Lead for Business Transformation in Mid Market Advisory for KPMG.

Marcela and her team advises Operations, Technology and Finance leaders on how to improve or transform their organisations, in order to:

  • grow
  • become more sustainable
  • become more resilient, through the establishment of better strategies, processes and governance, and through the use of technology and data as enablers.

Marcela’s expertise expands across multiple industries and sectors such as Consumer Products, Industrial Manufacturing, Retail, Financial Services and Government. A great interest, passion and experience in the Construction and Real Estate industry has seen Marcela taking a lead role in Mid Market Advisory in this particular industry.

Marcela commenced her professional career as a technology engineer in the early 2000s, and transitioned into Technology Advisory for larger multinationals 5 years later, and into Business Transformation a few years after. Since her relocation from Lima to Amsterdam for about a decade, she has been serving clients in America, Europe, Asia and Africa. Marcela relocated to Australia in 2016 and joined the KPMG Partnership in February 2019.

Outside of KPMG, when Marcela is not helping clients she is travelling voraciously. She loves photography and cooking, and loves spending time with her husband Leon.
