LONDON and BOSTON, May 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Momentum ITSMA today announced the appointment of a Chair of the Board, David Silver, and new leadership appointments in North America and APAC region.
To help support its global client base, the firm has made two senior regional appointments. Julie Freeman, former Chief Marketing Officer of Tata Consulting Services Global Services business, joins as Consulting Director to lead its technology and services client practices in North America.
Freeman brings an impressive track record in transforming go to market and developing growth strategies, having also held leadership positions at KPMG, Cognizant, and Accenture. Most recently she’s supported the Private Equity sector with strategic advisory services.
“As a senior marketing leader, I’ve experienced firsthand passing the baton between suppliers to develop, align, and embed growth programs. There is a real need to partner with a firm that can help develop your strategy, align teams, tech, and processes, and embed these strategies into an organization.” Freeman adds, “Momentum ITSMA has this end-to-end capability with its research, consulting, and learning services. I’m excited to partner with more of its clients to help analyze the needs of their customers, build go-to-market teams and optimize strategic account programs.”
Freeman’s appointment comes alongside the expansion of Momentum ITSMA’s APAC office, with the relocation of one of its European leaders, Cate Sutherland. The firm has hosted membership events, designed ABM programs, and developed teams with learning programs in APAC over the last ten years, most recently working on a large transformation with Fujitsu.
Sutherland brings a wealth of proven expertise in partnering with clients to align teams and develop and embed growth programs.
“We are doing tremendous work with clients in Japan, India, Australia, and Singapore, and already support over 50 member firms in the region with events, research studies, and tools. I’m looking forward to taking my experience over the past few years from our European and North America clients into the APAC region,” said Sutherland.
Momentum ITSMA CEO, Alisha Lyndon, adds, “Sales and marketing leaders are looking to manage growth as a top priority. With our growing team and our capabilities, we can help our clients uncover areas of growth, and work with them to capture that growth opportunity now and in the future.”

Momentum ITSMA is dealing with these changes in innovative and thoughtful ways, which will add significant impact to our clients’ businesses.” said Silver.
