A little bit about Marissa…

Marissa Maher is an Associate Director in the Accounting & Supply Chain division of Barden’s talent advisory and recruitment firm in Munster.

After completing a BComm at UCC and an MBS Strategic Management and Planning at UCD, Marissa spent the next eight years developing her career in financial services, working with banking and asset management firms while acquiring her QFA qualification. Despite her success in the FS industry, Marissa held a passion for a more people-centric career path. This drive led her to attain her CIPD Certificate in Human Resource Management, and during a working holiday in Australia, she gained her first experience of working in recruitment.

Marissa joined Barden in December 2017, allowing her to leverage her professional experiences in a role where she could make a tangible difference in people’s lives. After working on accounting appointments for several years, Marissa expanded her focus in 2023 and took on a key role within the business to develop Barden’s Supply Chain & Procurement practice.
