E5 - Jenn Tanabe from Vertical Measures and Kim Essendrup from Kolme Group

Season #1

Jenn Tanabe is a seasoned project manager who oversees Vertical Measures’ project management team. She has nearly 10 years of digital marketing experience in strategy, content creation, SEO, amplification, lead nurture, and website development.

At Vertical Measures, Jenn’s proactive, supportive and upbeat approach to leading the project management team helps in delivering successful projects to their clients. In addition to leading her team, Jenn oversees the day-to-day team resource capacity and resource forecasting for the agency. She also project manages a few enterprise-level accounts, helping to plan, control scope, identify and mitigate risk, while effectively communicating with both her clients and her internal team.

Kim Essendrup solves problems. For the last 20+ years, he’s been a Project Manager, Program Manager, PMO manager and consultant. He had lead international infrastructure and M&A programs, and delivered project management training and coaching to domestic and international clients as a PMI Registered Education Provider.

He is one of the founding partners of Kolme Group, LLC, which was started by three PMO managers who grew so tired of the accepted “status quo” of poor Project and Portfolio Management solutions, that they teamed up to bring Data Driven PPM to portfolio managers everywhere.
