Lisa Mikkelsen

Senior Manager, Human Capital

As a member of the human capital team, Lisa supports portfolio organizations in the areas of recruitment and talent management. In that role, she not only manages executive recruiting across Africa and Europe but also coaches organizational leaders to enhance their ability to manage current talent and identify future leaders.

Prior to joining Omidyar Network in 2010, Lisa served as the director of recruiting at technology startup Inflection. She single-handedly built Inflection’s recruiting department, which led to the hiring of an all-star executive team and a significant increase in talent acquisition across all departments. Previously, Lisa worked as a recruiting consultant and spent nearly six years at QuinStreet, managing a team of recruiters as the company rapidly scaled.

Lisa received a bachelor’s degree in human development from the University of California, San Diego, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.
