We are Polaris Talent.
We are Polaris Talent
We trace our roots back over 40 years to when Marshall and Marie, lifelong friends, met in junior high. When Marie was looking for business partners she could trust and invest in she turned to Marshall and her daughter, Roma, to help her realize a dream and disrupt an industry while having fun doing it.
Founder & CVO (Chief Vision Officer)
Marie is passionate about showing the world what good recruiting looks like. She brings 20+ years of global staffing experience to the table and is a coach and mentor to startups. Despite moving to San Diego in 1986, she is a Wisconsin girl at heart. Marie finds left-right brain balance by writing and building costumes for theatre and ballet.
Roma is a Co-Founder, Program Manager and one of the Lead Recruiters. There is no skill set she can’t find, no matter where they are, and no project she can’t handle. A native of San Diego, she balances building Polaris Talent with a ballet and musical theatre career. She also enjoys teaching and giving back to her local San Diego, CA community.
