Momenta Welcomes Kathleen Avery as Principal Partner

Momenta, the leading global Executive Search, Advisory, and Ventures firm focused on Digital Industry, is pleased to announce the appointment of Kathleen Avery as Principal Partner of Executive Search.


Ms. Avery has a broad and deep background in executive search, specializing in the appointment of senior executives within the Big Data, IoT, Data Security, Networking, AI, and FinTech spaces.

Earlier in her career, Ms. Avery founded and served as CEO of The Avery Group – a technology-focused executive search firm. During her time leading and growing the firm, she also launched and grew a technology consulting division. She later sold the firm to a NASDAQ-listed company for a 100x return. Since then, Ms. Avery has held several senior-level leadership roles at various Bay Area executive search services providers. Most recently, Ms. Avery served as Managing Director of Angel Technology Partners.


Momenta delivers digital innovation, growth, and leadership across energy, manufacturing, smart spaces, and supply chain.
