Marisa Teo

The daughter of society fundraiser Peggy Jeffs didn’t just inherit her family’s lighting business; she’s taken her third-generation business duties seriously enough to have developed her own lighting brand, Maerich. Within three years of its launch, Maerich is now available in over 20 countries and has been given the seal of approval by the world’s leading architects and lighting designers. Marisa is a firm believer of research and development in order to constantly push the envelope in lighting design, and reckons that the way to transform one’s audience into advocates is through sincerity and authenticity.
