Maria Montgomery

Maria loves nature and spending time with family & friends. Since 2013 her family is based in Mallorca. There you will probably find her hiking in the mountains or jogging along the beach, on horseback or meditating on a cliff by the sea.

Maria is a former partner and management consultant with 12 years of experience from various organizations and industries. In her role as a management consultant, Maria has designed and implemented both development programs for leaders and management groups as well as being responsible for Change Management projects. She has led assignments on high-performance and multicultural teams, as well as development of management teams and employment ship. Furthermore, she has facilitated workshops and supported leaders in change management. Maria has delivered consulting services in complex change projects in companies with operations in several countries.

Maria has previously also worked with selection and potential assessments of managers and specialists, as well as competence mapping, customer-adapted organizational mapping and employee surveys. She also has experience in sales within the office rental industry

Well liked by both customers and colleagues through her positive way and ability to see and develop the best from those she works with as well as being a professional, focused, honest and warm personality with a big heart.

In 2007, Maria underwent a life crisis as a result of a trauma in her private life. It was a start of a spiritual and personal development journey that is still ongoing. It would take 10 years with insights and life experiences before the pieces began to fall into place. In 2013, love brought her to Mallorca and Maria started to spend part of her time there. She slowly began a change from within and new insights on what is important in life, how to live in the present and what it mean to be an authentic person. It would also need a “burn out” to really let go of the "old" and make room for something new - for real.

Since January 2019, Maria and Carl-Greger run "Changes from within", a business within personal and spiritual development based on their own life journeys and believes. They offer retreats, seminars, courses in meditation and intuition, providing guidance and healing treatments.

CG LEIJONHUFVUD

CG loves sitting by the sea meditating, walking along the beach or along the many trails in Mallorca. His preferred office is any of the many coffee places by the sea around Palma. Discussing philosophical questions, spending time with his kids and family, friends or anyone that is up for a discussion on the meaning of life, he loves to do.

CG was born in Helsingborg, Sweden, but spent most of his childhood in Stockholm. He took a Master of Science in Engineering Physics at The Royal Institute of Technology after his Military Service where he left as a Secondary Lieutenant. 

CG is a former CEO and Managing Partner. Most of his working life has been with startups and high growth companies. The first 10 of his working career, he was based in Luxembourg working within the telecoms and payment industries. Investment companies, biotech and banking are also part of his resume. He has been the COO of an internet consultancy, as well as Sales Director for Ericsson HP, responsible for Middle East and Asia. Turn-arounds, change management, mergers and acquisitions, as well as overseeing complex business transactions and international join ventures are other projects he has been in charge of. He has experience servicing as board member of several international companies and and he has an extensive network of business colleges.

Intuition, people skills and and honest straight forward approach to challenges, difficulties and daily working conditions has made him a well-like colleague and respected manager.

In November of 2011, CG had a spontaneous kundalini awakening that would completely transform his life. He embarked on a journey, a new direction that would force him to re-evaluate everything he believed in. It came at the end of a period of many personal difficulties. Spiritual and personal development are now the important drivers in his life, and will continue to be so. At 2017, he resigned from his job and moved to Mallorca, to start yet a new chapter in his life.

Since January 2019, Maria and Carl-Greger run "Changes from within", a business within personal and spiritual development based on their own life journeys and believes. They offer retreats, seminars, courses in meditation and intuition, providing guidance and healing treatments.
