Fascinated by foreign countries since childhood, it was a 3-month trip to Latin America that truly affirmed Kerstin Leibold’s enthusiasm for international relations: A business management student at the time, she spent several months living with a Peruvian family. During her stay, she assisted an Indio community in the commercial development of their hand-crafted products.
Her passion for international affairs was born
Understanding the cultural, political and economic differences between Peru and her home country Germany, was a vital factor of this project. Kerstin practiced a new language and also witnessed first-hand the climate’s influence on economic activities.
During this period, she also travelled to Chile, a country which inspired the name Klarica Conseil International:
KLARICA is composed of the initials KL for Kerstin Leibold and the name of the Chilean port town ARICA that serves as a crossroad between Peru, Chile and Bolivia. The perfect symbol of intercultural exchange.
KLARICA also represents clarity.
Clarity allows the creation of reliable international relations and sustainable business growth, provides awareness of challenges, and paves the way for new opportunities.
Since day one, this is what drives Kerstin Leibold on a daily basis.
Upon her return to Germany, Kerstin chose to specialise in international B2C business, attracted by the sector’s global scope, rich cultural aspects and constant evolution.
She then discovered the diversity of European countries and nurtured her enthusiasm for international business while working in Germany, Italy, Belgium, England and France, on a European and global scale.
Through intercultural contexts,
I like to find the perfect "match"
between customers’ preferences
and a company’s offer,
creating value and gratification
for both sides
