As one of Bespoke Partners' first recruiters and earliest team members, Carissa has played an integral role in developing and executing Bespoke’s marketing, growth and business development initiatives. She has worked with investors at Insight Venture Partners, TA Associates, Accel-KKR, Thoma Bravo, and Rubicon Technology Partners. She has helped build the executive teams for Planview, Cherwell Software, eVestment, DrillingInfo, Bomgar, Kinnser Software and more.

Carissa is the Managing Partner of our Austin office and has been responsible for building out our Texas-based team and establishing our presence in the South (and beyond). She has quickly adapted to life as an Austinite. In fact, when’s she not working you can find her walking her dog, Oliver, around the lake or at one of the many delicious restaurants that Austin has to offer.


She graduated with honors from the University of San Diego with a B.A. in Communication Studies and Marketing.
