Our History

We all know that you need a strong foundation before you can build anything. At Menemsha, that is exactly what we had when we launched our Program Management (PM) division. As a company originally established to provide great Construction Services, we had clients taking on significant brand remodel projects. We knew we could help. So we took our passion for client service, our embrace of cutting-edge technologies, and our years of industry experience to build our Program Management team and get to work. The projects have been in a wide variety of sectors across the country.

In Florida, we managed over 50 new T.I.’s within a year for Washington Mutual Bank. And then when JPMorgan Chase acquired their retail banking operations, Menemsha was there to complete a 597-branch nationwide rebranding. Our team has grown and our Online Project Management (OPM) system for managing workflows, documentation, and communications is one of our PM core competencies. Menemsha is now widely recognized throughout the industry for our PM expertise. But what matters most are the repeat business and referrals from you, our clients.

Philosophy

Navigators. Mentors. Sherpas. A bit of each is reflected in the guiding philosophy of our work. Program Management is complex. Chances are when we meet and you tell us about your program that we’ve ‘been there and done that’ many times over. We know the questions to ask, the steps to take, and the team members to engage. As PM experts, we counsel our clients, help them navigate a path, and do the heavy lifting along the way to a successful program rollout. We know the corners to look around and how to overcome the surprises when they land in front of us. We are leading, communicating, and executing. It’s our world and it may not be yours. But we are going to ensure that our experience and expertise will help you reach your destination on time, on quality, and on budget. As navigators that is our North Star.

Tom Speroni

EXECUTIVE VP / PRINCIPAL
After earning a degree in Business from the University of Denver, where Tom also studied Real Estate and Construction Management, he found himself in Seattle, WA. Leveraging his academic and hands-on construction experience, he positioned himself at the forefront of the expansion for a little-known local coffee shop chain poised for growth. Five years later, his entrepreneurial spirit started calling. Tom departed his senior role to become a partner at Menemsha. With the client’s perspective in focus, he pioneered an innovative Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) process for retail expansion. Working with fast-growing national restaurant and retail chains, he leveraged his Seattle expertise to streamline the development process and to accelerate store openings. Later, bringing this strategy into the healthcare sector, he successfully applied a similar approach to dialysis centers, Lasik eye surgery clinics, and dental offices. A recognized industry advocate for the pursuit and embrace of technology to create an edge in commercial development, Tom is a sought-after speaker on the benefits of Integrated Project Development and synergistic retail rollouts.
