Josephine “Joey” Ma joins Patino Associates after dedicating the past 5 years to the finance industry focusing on investor relations, client advisory, and wealth management. In her previous roles at Bessemer Trust and Orchard Global, Joey was responsible for building and nurturing relationships with prospects and clients in the US, UK, Middle East, and Asia. She is excited to bring her wealth of knowledge and join the executive search industry as an Associate.
Prior to her roles in finance, Joey co-founded a nationally recognized and Michelin award winning hospitality group. As co-founder she led operations, public relations, human resources, and business development. She is proud of her work with The National Museum of American History, where her family’s contribution to the food world is featured in the FOOD: Transforming the American Table exhibit. While she retired from the day-to-day operations of her restaurant group, she continues to serve as sounding board, fellow visionary, and more importantly “taste-tester” to the remaining founder.
Joey is the proud parent of 3 elementary school children who have convinced her to adopt 2 rescue puppies: a goldendoodle named Kevin and a bernedoodle named Bernie. When Joey is not at her kids’ soccer games, track meets, or walking the puppies, she enjoys reading, the theater, and wine tasting.
