Marisa began her career in the life sciences sector within the finance departments of international companies such as Squibb and Pharmacia. Her firm grasp of the principles of financial management, combined with a broader understanding of business and a facility for technical issues, then led to senior management roles covering business operations, IT and finance in firms such as Phadia (now Thermofisher). She also project managed a series of IT implementations involving Business Intelligence, CRM and ERP systems, often involving several countries.
A growing interest in the management of change led to projects involving organisational restructuring, and also to BPR projects. Corporate restructuring has been a feature of recent years in the life sciences sector and Marisa has played an important role in a number of start-up, spin-off projects and mergers.
The sum of Marisa's experience means she is well positioned to provide assistance to executives of life sciences companies seeking advice on change management or problem-solving, and to take on the high level planning and implementation of complex restructuring challenges, as well as IT projects. Her verbal communication skills and natural drive to motivate teams to reach ambitious goals means she can lead naturally from the front where needed.
Outside of work, she spends most of her free time with her family and pursuing an interest in photography. She is fluent in English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Catalan, and has a “conversational” level of French.
“Marisa is a great leader who during a period of change can lead a change resistant organization to great achievements. She delivers on time and above expectations. I would not hesitate to hire her again.”
