“My mission was to bring accounting into the modern age through technology, consistency and humanity.”
Marissa launched Logistis in 2014. Logistis was one of the first cloud-based accounting firms in Los Angeles. The antiquated accounting industry had almost completely extinguished her passion for numbers and accountants historical disconnect from the customer experience. Marissa wanted to build a modern, reliable firm that would ensure financial reporting was not lost in the mundane. Marissa wanted to help creative entrepreneurs understand their finances and help bring color to the field of accounting by painting a picture of what their future could be. She thrives off the passion of creative entrepreneurs and loves being able to lead her internal team by bringing in each employee into the tribe with a great deal of care and respect.
Logistis is now branching out into a specialized network of fields. Logistis for Designers and Reconciled for Ecommerce are both thriving firms but Marissa still directly oversees her first baby, Logsitis.
