Merrill Csuri


TAB Gateway

Merrill helps business owners and leaders of companies in North Jersey (Bergen, Passaic, and Hudson Counties) and New York City find balance between personal and professional goals to improve both their personal lives and their financial bottom lines. With a background that spans from the United Nations and National Geographic to a decade serving tech start-ups, including in C-suite and Director level roles in employee engagement and operations, Merrill now serves as Owner/President of TAB Gateway and Meandering Ventures. 

Here at TAB Gateway, Merrill blends group facilitation and one-on-one coaching to help Business Owners, Founders, C-suite Executives, and rising leaders excel. Our TAB Boards are exclusive, invite-only groups of 8-10 business owners and leaders from non-competing companies. We meet monthly in a relaxed, confidential setting to share solid insights and practical advice that can be applied immediately. TAB members gain:

  • Peer Advisory Board: Connect with like-minded business owners and leaders to share ideas, solutions, and hold each other accountable.
  • Private Coaching and Mentoring: Make better decisions faster, with support that ensures action and accountability.
  • Strategic Tools and Methodologies: Transform your company with top-notch business planning and implementation tools.
  • International Network: Expand your horizons with insights from TAB members worldwide.

Through Meandering Ventures, Merrill offers tailored organizational design and strategy consulting. Whether you're restructuring a department, streamlining back-office operations, managing through challenging times, or navigating acquisitions, she’s got you covered. Services include:

  • Operational Policies and Talent Management Plans: From defining to implementing and revising, Meandering Ventures helps you get it right.
  • One-on-One Coaching and Group Training: Master employee management, leadership development, and investor communication. 

Merrill holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Arts in International Policy from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies. A certified TAB Board Facilitator and trained Reboot.io Facilitator, she has also completed numerous Coursera courses in Coaching, Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Positive Psychology.

When not working, Merrill is a happy mom of two young boys and an avid runner with two marathons and twelve half marathons under her belt. She loves hiking, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, and crafting, and as a recent transplant from the city to suburbia, Merrill dreams of expanding her houseplant growing skills to home gardening. Mindfulness and traveling are her passions—having visited 23 countries and 32 states, and spectated at four Olympic Games (and counting!). Follow her adventures on Instagram @meanderingadventures.

Let’s connect and see how we can elevate your business and personal life to the next level.

Member Success

As a TAB member, through the regular coaching sessions and monthly Board meetings, I gain invaluable mentor and peer support. The TAB ethos and coaching approach has helped me to plan personal and business goals and set direction. This is supported by the wealth of knowledge, skills, experience and support that is shared by the board who provide Impartial, informed and considered guidance and advice on all types of business issues, that enable me to gain fresh perspectives, identify blind spots and fill my skill gaps. Over the last twelve months TAB has effectively become my company’s non-executive board and its members my trusted colleagues.

There is no silver bullet to becoming successful, you just have to stay focused on your goals. TAB has helped my business grow significantly by encouraging me to take a step back and identify the basics I need.

TAB helped me to focus on the things that have made my business scalable. I was tempted to divert my attention to another endeavor, but TAB helped me determine that was not prudent. The economy, and specifically new building starts, have helped, but the degree of capitalization would not have been possible were it not for TAB. I compare my situation with another franchise owner who was in my shoes several years ago and I am way ahead, in fact we just bought him out. My revenues have doubled, and my capacity has increased four times from what it was three years ago. I have time to be with my girls, work on my hobbies and enjoy life.

We have an excellent group of professional business owners. I learn something from them each month. Hearing and seeing what they are doing in their business is motivational for me. And they are not "yes" people. They tell me when I should be doing something differently.

My TAB coach has gotten me on track and kept me on track since 2005 toward the goals I’d originally stated," says Perlmeter. "I’m totally confident that we’ll continue to realize the vision that I have for the company in our second decade.
Stu Perlmeter
President – First Resource
16 yrs. in business. Company was run like mom and pop shop for 14 years. Since joining TAB we have been able to identify our niche in the market and now the company is being run like a real company with focus and clarity as to where we are going and an actual plan on how we’re going to get there. Our company is poised to grow in size and wealth beyond my expectations and with TAB I will be able to sleep at night in the process.
