Marcy Schwab
Leadership Coach


“We are all a product of our experiences.”

Marcy brings over 20 years of experience as a senior executive, management consultant, facilitator, and leadership coach to every client engagement. She is a respected business executive who has earned a reputation for delivering significant results in complex organizations. Throughout Marcy’s corporate career she successfully managed large strategic projects from idea through successful execution.  Marcy has a broad range of experience in highly strategic line management roles, holding executive and Officer level positions at both Sallie Mae and Capital One. In her corporate capacity, she led strategy, product development and marketing of groundbreaking businesses

Marcy now dedicates her time to helping leaders and organizations by providing consulting, leadership development, strategic planning, facilitation, and coaching. Marcy focuses on helping individuals and teams deliver exceptional results by setting and communicating a vision, prioritizing the highest value activities, creating efficient plans, tracking progress, and especially developing visionary leaders, helping them find and develop their unique voice and working at their highest potential.

Marcy works from the premise that leaders are part of a larger ecosystem, that their leadership moves and the moves of others have a profound and lasting impact on the system of the whole. That premise in combination with the notion that suggest that even one new practice, and especially many new practices, will change the outcomes an organization can produce.  It’s not just that leaders lead by example, though they do, it’s that being open to change, then trying new things, and creating new experiences for those in the organization enables the entirety of the organization to see and create possibilities that didn’t exist before.  

Marcy has applied her strategic approach to her coaching of C-suite leaders in large corporations, the Federal Government, law firms, small businesses, VC-backed start-ups, and individuals.
