How do others see me?
I had the privilege of working with Iolanda over many years at both Almirall and AstraZeneca. She is one of the most dedicated professionals I know with an incredible capacity to dig into the details of an issue and map out how to effectively move forward. Iolanda works well in complex multi-functional and multi-cultural teams and is adept at forming and leading teams to address specific issues. If you want to power up your team performance bring Iolanda on board!

Iolanda is fantastic to work with having an exceptional ability to collaborate, lead, coach and challenge. Always able to apply a critical and strategic lens to identify new ways of working and new opportunities to explore. Iolanda was a key leader in our open innovation activities, identifying new emerging technology vendors to solve previously unmet business problems. Consistently demonstrating a solid work ethic and determination to drive and land change within the organisation whilst able to successfully navigate stakeholders to achieve buy-in.
I highly recommend Iolanda and look forward to future opportunity to work with her again.
Innovation Strategy Lead, AstraZeneca
Though our tenure working together at AstraZeneca was short, the culture which you constructed within our team was certainly one that stuck out amongst the various project teams I supported. When I was a newcomer to the new product launch team, you eased the transition due to your supportive and inclusive style of leadership. It is a style of leadership I look to emulate as I progress in my career.

Since we met back in 2018, I’ve been lucky to work with Iolanda on two occasions during my role as Innovation Adviser at ACCIÓ (Catalan Government’s agency for business competitiveness).
Firstly, she was our point of contact at AstraZeneca when assessing Innovation opportunities with Catalan start-ups. Iolanda always showcased a true innovation mindset: thinking how things could be done differently, having the corporate value in mind, and going the extra mile to make opportunities move.
Secondly, we received a training session from Iolanda on Investment Opportunities in the Pharma Sector. Her insights as an expert in the pharmaceutical industry were extremely valuable, and we much appreciated how she managed to adapt the message to make it relevant to our mission.
It’s always been a pleasure to work with Iolanda, thanks to her impeccable project management skills and amazing energy. I truly hope I get the chance to work with her again in the future!

I had the very good fortune of having Dr. Marchueta in my drug discovery group within Boehringer-Ingelheim’s antiviral center. She is an excellent chemist with both exceptional scientific knowledge and practical aptitude. She is a team player with wonderful interpersonal skills who was highly appreciated by all of her colleagues.
