Marjean began her career at Arthur Andersen & Co. where she spent 12 years working with a broad range of companies providing assurance, IPO and merger and acquisition services. She was the first female audit manager in the Dallas office and coached many women professionals during their public accounting career. Believing that women could manage a family and a career, she headed the first women's task force at Andersen to address these issues.

Marjean left Andersen to become Sr. VP and CFO of RCL Enterprises, the owner of the popular children's TV character, Barney the Dinosaur. During her five-year tenure, the company's revenue grew 10 times year over year- from $50 million to $450 million. During that exciting and stressful time, Marjean was responsible for managing the growth of the company as well as coaching and mentoring the management team and employees through an explosive and ever changing environment.

"You can't work with companies to initiate change without coaching the people through the change. If the people are forgotten, it's my experience the transition will be tougher, take longer and never be as completely successful. People are who I work with to help accomplish the desired change by helping them map out a game plan, identify and anticipate the challenges/opportunities and then work through the obstacles," she says. "I also stand as their cheerleader, their confidant, and sounding board."

The last year at Tatum, Marjean served as the Associate Managing Partner where she was responsible for practice development, recruiting and integrating new partners into the practice as well as managing and coaching 36 CFO's.

Today Marjean has turned her avocation of coaching and working with others into her life's work.
