Marisa Fong

Co-founder, Madison Recruitment

Marisa co-founded The Madison Group in 1998, successfully growing it to become New Zealand’s largest, privately owned Recruitment Company.  Having won numerous awards, it was acquired in 2013 by a public company in a textbook deal that has 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 Charitable Foundation, Advisory Board member for NZ Work Research Institute (AUT), Learning Chair for Entrepreneurs’ Organisaton and an Advisory Board member for Curative (a Creative Agency with a focus on social good projects).

Marisa is also a member of ArcAngels, NZ Asian Leaders, Institute of Directors, and Global Women and was a mentor for First Foundation for four years.  Marisa recently launched, in partnership, a new venture (TBC Partners) supporting owners of private enterprise on their entrepreneurial journey.  Marisa is passionate about NZ Inc. and channels all her commercial and advisory involvement accordingly. She has a husband, a teenage daughter and a dog, all mostly house trained.
