Executive Search

Our search process is driven by deep industry insight and fine-tuned management tools. We begin by listening to your unique needs and targeting the best new forces in your next team. We believe in building teams of complementary strengths. Our own success takes root in that approach, and yours can, too.

Management Consulting

Our people-performance metrics illuminate what’s working and what’s not; our specialized knowledge and experience help us see why from an unbiased perspective. We shape teams into highly functioning units, consolidating strong team sustainability, forecasting assurance, and overall efficiency.


The dedication, expertise & client-centered approach of Marlyn Group brings clients tangible strategic value.


Marlyn Group is led by two friendly people with more than 40 years of combined experience in management, training, and operational strategy.

Colleen M. Niese, SPHR, CPP

SPHR, CPP, Principal

Colleen’s understanding of what makes a business tick comes from her 25 years of experience in human resources, and her insatiable curiosity about superior business. 

Colleen assesses strategies for organizational growth, HR practices, recruitment plans, and employee training. Rarely do consultants see the trajectory and impact of a company, as well as drive change from the ground up—but Colleen does. She investigates and leads all levels of an organization to deliver financial results.

Vicki Pero, CPP, SPHR

SPHR, CPP, Principal

Well-balanced in operational leadership and support, Vicki zeros in on employee training, recruitment, and organizational development programs to improve outcomes putting people first. 

19 years of experience in the parking industry have cross-trained Vicki to manage challenges from the inside out. During her career she has managed a regional territory comprised of 80 locations, has led a company’s field audit function, and has designed training solutions for all levels of employees.

Marlyn Group has helped us achieve our goals more efficiently and validate our decisions along the way.
— Eddie Pohrer, President, St. Louis Parking Company
