Our Support Team

Miraine Demanuele
Marketing Executive
Miraine, is our new Marketing Executive at Exacta. Recently graduated with a Bachelors in Marketing and Management, she adds a fresh outlook to our internal marketing. Currently pursuing her Masters in Digital Marketing, she's eager to assist in brand growth and help in creating engaging content.


I recently collaborated with Chanelle in regard to a job opportunity. Being an active member of the LinkedIn social network platform gave me the opportunity to interact with numerous recruiters occasionally; which definitely helps me to compare Chanelle’s approach with other professionals within the HR sector.

Chanelle initially approached me with honesty, accuracy on the details of the job description and encouraging attitude. As soon as I decided that the job role fits my profile, she tried to book an interview for me having an excellent level of flexibility in my tight schedule. Before the interview, she came back to me with a very well-structured plan of the upcoming interview, providing tips and examples.

What made the difference is that, before each interview, Chanelle contacted me in order to try to understand how I’m feeling and to ask whether I had any last-minute questions that she could possibly provide assistance with. This made me feel that I had someone to support me during this stressful interview process.

If I had to describe her as a professional in 3 words, they would be: well-organized, well-informed and super supportive.

A note about our name…

An Exacta bet, also referred to as an Exactor or Perfecta, is one where the bettor picks two horses to finish in the first and second place positions (Win and Place), in an exact order. Both horses must finish in the chosen order, or the bet is lost. So now you know!
