Marisa co-founded The Madison Group in 1998, successfully growing it to become New Zealand’s largest, privately owned recruitment company. It was acquired in 2013 by a public company in a deal that set a precedent for the industry. Since then, Marisa has invested in a portfolio of angel investments, and supports causes close to her heart. She is currently Chair for Professionelle Foundation, Advisory Board member for NZ Work Research Institute (AUT), and Advisory Board member for Curative.
Marisa is also a member of ArcAngels, NZ Asian Leaders, Institute of Directors and Global Women and has been a mentor for First Foundation. She has also launched, in partnership, a new venture (TBC Partners) supporting owners of private enterprise on their entrepreneurial journey.
