Momentem’s mission is to support purpose driven organizations as they strengthen their impact in a world that has fundamentally changed and is rapidly evolving.
Our value lies in our expertise as both for-profit and not-for-profit leaders and practitioners. As you navigate tectonic change, we can be your experienced thought partners to help you yield better outcomes and accelerate momentum.
Momentem Consulting Group- Momentem with an “e”- was launched in 2021 by founders Ann Figueredo and Marlene L. Olshan as our country emerges from the major disruption of a pandemic and a national reckoning with racial and economic inequities. Everything we knew must be revisited and refined to fulfill our purpose.
Ann and Marlene are reuniting to form MomentEm after being partners and Principals at another consulting firm founded in the 1990’s called Spectrem Group. Spectrem with an “e”. As both an encore to their successful partnership in the past, as well as their strong desire to help organizations evolve to be the best they can be in the future, Momentem Consulting Group was formed.
