Louisa is commercial manager at Orbica Ltd, an award-winning Christchurch technology consultancy that has grown from a start-up to employ more than 30 permanent staff across two continents in three-and-a-half years.
Louisa brings her commercial and legal expertise to the Orbica team to negotiate joint ventures and collaborative endeavours, agreements, regulatory compliance and risk management as the company expands its product arm into new export markets.
She has a broad background in helping organisations to think outside the box through innovative services in business consultancy, service delivery design, customer experience, business improvement and project management. She has wealth of experience across small-to-medium size businesses, large corporates and in the government sector. She has also run her own retail and wholesale business.
Louisa believes technology supports and enables all other industries. With large numbers of skilled and creative Kiwis being made redundant in the current economic climate, Louisa is working to encourage business and government to find creative retraining opportunities that stimulate growth and employment while advocating for New Zealand’s growing tech industry.
