Marie-Noëlle Erize Tisseau
Marie-Noëlle Erize Tisseau is citizen of the world. Born in Argentina, Marie-Noëlle has lived all over the world, spending time in France and Venezuela, finally settling in Spain. This is thanks both to having family in France, and to her degree in Public Relations, which she studied at the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa in Buenos Aires.
She has developed her professional career in prestigious international companies and moved to Marbella in 1999. Here she decided to start her own firm: Marie-Noëlle Comunicación, an agency with a young and contemporary spirit. The agency specialises in communications, PR, event organisation as well as managing the internal and external communications of particular businesses and individuals.
With strong connections to professionals in different branches of communication, Marie Noëlle Comunicación caters for all types of needs. The agency’s sphere of influence is not limited by location; clients can develop their influence at both a national and international level. Loyal to her values, her ethos is one of excellence in work and personal relations. There’s a good reason that Marie-Noëlle’s motto is ‘to be a part of your success’.
Marcela Figueroa Villota
Head of Press Department
Marcela has a degree in Art History from The Complutense University of Madrid, though she later channelled her passion for communication by pursuing a Master’s Degree in Communication and Public Relations at the same university.
Following a long career in communication and press offices – both agencies as well as national and international firms – Marcela has a large repertoire of personal relationships in the world of communication and marketing.
According to her experience, the key to success lies in how you communicate a brand, since this is a crucial point when presenting, reinventing or enduring time.
Her greatest differentiating feature is in dealing with the different parties involved, without ever losing sight of the objective to be achieved. For Marcela, each client is unique and she therefore always seeks to generate new opportunities, through efficient and quality work.
