Engineering Manager at Anaplan
I have worked for 2 years with Magali as our Product Manager. She has Always exhibited great passion for working with customers, representing their needs and views. Magali has brought a keen analytic mind and reasoning to steer the product in the right direction. It has been a pleasure working alongside her.
Partner at Retailitix
Magali you are the most effective, resolute, and thorough professional I've ever met. You took Anaplan Extensions, an obscure feature of the platform, and created what I consider to be a must-have set of applications for any Anaplan implementation. Your leadership inspired the rest of the development team to bring this to market making these extensions a strategic advantage, as no other cloud vendor has a world-class addon worth mentioning. But that's only the beginning. You also cultivated a community of like minded people and encouraged people to share their challenges, ideas for the future, and questions. Lastly, and most impressively, is your willingness to coach and mentor others, including me, on how to be a more effective and successful planner. You're brilliant!
Programme Manager at Old Mutual Limited
I worked with Magali for a short period in a volunteer capacity. Magali is super organised and very professional. She managed a small team of part-time volunteers and showed commitment, capacity and resilience. She was able to help drive out initial product feasibility for our start up social enterprise.
Associate at L.E.K. Consulting
Magali was a fantastic Product Manager & Technology Lead at now-u. She managed the design and development teams well, taking on a wide range of responsibilities such as overseeing the design of a new version of the now-u app and developing a product roadmap. Beyond this, Magali contributed a great deal to the wider team, including helping guide now-u strategy, and was also happy to help with important tasks such as developing wireframes. She was a pleasure to work with and always brought new and interesting ideas to the team - we wish her all the best in future.
Director at WeSwim Club
I have been really impressed with how Magali has lead WeSwim blogs. Magali has invested time to shape this new role, including planning a schedule for topics to align with world events, positioning each post in a person centred /accessible tone and researching individual subjects and adapting them all to match our unique audience. Her work ethic is impressive and the standard has consistently been very high. Thank you for all you have done Magali.
Director, Product Management: Platform Security at Anaplan
Magali has a unique understanding of customers that comes from her experience working with software platform vendors as a customer. A product expert focused on execution, she identifies improvement opportunities in product management processes, including development, quality, enablement, support, and messaging. She is thorough in documenting complex issues around feature definition and delivery on a software platform that includes underlying services needed to successfully implement a feature. She meets feature delivery milestones according to planned release dates, with consistent follow-up across impacted platform components. This includes proactively identifying and resolving product dependencies to meet aggressive delivery timeframes. I thoroughly recommend her as a product manager for any agile and execution-focused organization.
Head of Reward & People Analytics at Personio
Magali was vital to the team, and contributed significantly to the development of Anaplan during its utilisation at Travelex. Being Analytical, displaying Critical Thinking, and usually carrying out extensive Research, Magali provided outstanding results for Travelex. She was always able to successfully complete any tasks with favourable results despite any pressure and worked far beyond the call of duty when necessary. On top of game there is nobody that she wouldn't help and anyone who works with her can attest to her efficient and effective delivery, professional business acumen and ethical conduct. You can always count on Magali Pelissier to meticulously engineer a solution, that not only works, but is rock solid. Magali is a proven person who does and says what she does and I have always felt Magali Pelissier was one of the most effective team mates I've ever had the opportunity of working with and as a result, I recommend Magali with enthusiasm.
EPR Configuration Analyst at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust
I worked with Magali throughout 2017. I found her to be engaging and super-smart. She is thorough, tenacious and always was able to add her own perspective to every task. She quickly organised everyone in the team before they were even aware of it. Her structured and clear approach was welcome and appreciated. I was sad to see her go but at the same time pleased for her. I would wholeheartedly recommend Magali.
Head of scheduling and network at Transavia
Magali worked for Transavia France from April 2015 to September 2015. Her internship as network development analyst allowed Magali to develop solid knowledges in low cost carrier business model and strong skills in new market research. I would recommend Magali eyes closed if you are looking for someone curious, autonomous, creative, hardworking and professional. She was appreciated by all her colleagues and management for her qualities.
VP Finance EMEA at ServiceNow
Throughout the internship, Magali demonstrated strong execution and never failed to add a creative touch when appropriate. She actively looked for opportunities to take part or initiate discussions that change the way the business operates outside of the direct activity she was assigned to. Despite being a junior member on the team, she quickly got up to speed and deep across a breath of technical and strategic areas (French Airports specific regulatory requirements, airport charges, airlines positioning). I would highly recommend her, as she naturally rises to the occasion when presented with something she is passionate about.
Researcher and teacher at Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile
I supervized Magali for a her 2nd-year engineering school project. The project addressed a research-oriented subject at the interface of Air Transportation and Operations Research (Optimization). She was working on this project with a her fellow student, Mathilde Civrac. I was delighted to work with both of these students: bright, autonomous, that communicate well and understand very rapidly, willing, serious, efficient and congenial. I recommand both Magali and Mathilde very warmly to anybody that envisage hiring them.
