Marisa is an accomplished international business leader with proven track record of identifying white spaces across different industry sectors and driving sustainable business growth.
Her entrepreneurial background stems from developing next gen multi-million dollar ventures for Texas Instruments and Philips in the internet infrastructure and health & consumer lifestyle space. Her experience gives her a deep understanding for technology products and its power to transform and reinvent user experiences to challenge the status quo. It also developed her passion for innovation with massive social impact and sustainability.
She then made the leap to FMCG, joining Pepsico-Unilever joint venture and subsequently Diageo to set up a European centre of excellence in developing multi-year revenue growth strategies and instilling a ‘pay for performance’ culture that delivers a triple win agenda for the customer, consumer and the company.
She has co-founded and mentors a number of start-ups.
