Marianne is an award-winning entrepreneur and thought leader on transparency. As the Founder and CEO of Kno Global, her vision is to humanize the supply chain.

Marianne’s journey into the heart of supply chains includes “accidentally’ becoming a journalist and working at a factory in China.

She started writing about sustainability in apparel supply chains 7 years ago, for media including Huffington Post and interviewed Suzy Menkes International Director of Vogue for I-D Magazine.

She is an advocate for gender equality, and since launching her first business aged 18 has raised Angel, Government and VC funding as an entrepreneur.  

KNO Global's clients include Top 10 USA retailers. Brands want to avoid the next factory crisis, factories want to reduce the cost of turnover and make sales, workers want a voice. Kno builds community with factory workers and reports on their well-being weekly, driving continuous improvement to help brands avoid costly scandals.
