Associate Director (Strategic Insights)
Marisa joins Crowd DNA with over a decade of experience in research and strategy across the US, Australia, Asia and now the UK. Starting her career in psychology research, she worked at Boston University and Sydney University’s Brain And Mind Research Centre. From there, a determination to understand decision-making processes, coupled with a commercial mindset, led to insights and strategy work. Prior to moving to London, Marisa worked at Fiftyfive5 – a consultancy in Sydney, where she partnered with clients across the automotive, fashion, retail, FMCG, alcohol, finance and media categories throughout Asia-Pacific, tapping into tensions that led to growth opportunities and consumer-led strategies. Settling into London living, you can find Marisa exploring the bustling markets with a strong cup of coffee in hand, walking friends’ dogs or watching Antiques Roadshow. In a particularly banging weekend she gets to do all three.
