Meet the team
At MOMO we believe that young people should be able to participate fully in their care and it should be easy for them to speak up anytime they want.
Since January 2013 we’ve been making this happen by blending tech, social work and children’s rights expertise to create apps that they can use on their own 24/7, or with a worker or carer. We’re able to do this because of the unique mix of people and skills that make up Team MOMO.
Director, Head of Product and Governance Lead
Yvonne has over 30 years experience of working with young people on local and national programmes and eight years of building tech products for good. She manages MOMO’s behind the scenes functions and makes sure its apps are continuously improving.
Director, Head Trainer and Safeguarding Lead
Jill brings 25 years experience of social work management. She’s been a social worker, manager and Independent Reviewing Officer. Aswell as delivering all of MOMO’s training she leads on insight into social work practice, safeguarding and service improvement.
Mary McKenna is a well known Irish technology entrepreneur, who co-founded the successful e-learning company, Learning Pool. Mary is interested in helping grow indigenous UK and Irish tech companies and especially in working with female entrepreneurs. Mary was awarded the MBE by Her Majesty the Queen in the 2014 New Year’s Honours for services to digital technology, innovation and learning.
Product Manager and Neontribe Lead
Harry is a user-centred designer and has been working on young people’s projects since 2007. He manages the ongoing development of MOMO’s products while running Neontribe, MOMO’s development partner. His enthusiasm for technology that improves people’s lives is infectious.
Finance Officer and Business Support Lead
Amanda has been with MOMO from day one and makes sure that the business runs smoothly. She handles a load of small important tasks that mean everyone else can focus on the bigger things.
Senior Account Manager
Hunter was a customer success manager with a software company until he decided he wanted to join a company with a stronger social mission. So he followed his heart and found MOMO. He brings 5 years experience of increasing customer success and helping them get the most out of apps and online software.
Business Development Manager
Natalie brings with her nine years of sales experience from market leading tech companies. Her passion over the years for delivering projects that have a social conscience, outside of her day to day role, have led her to make the career shift into supporting children’s services and MOMO to deliver their mission.
Beatrice has joined us from the London Borough of Havering, where she very successfully embedded MOMO One and Express across their services. She has great understanding of how both apps work and has witnessed the differences that MOMO has made for young people and their workers.
Amanda joined MOMO because she wanted to do work that makes a difference. Her extensive travels have equipped her with sales experience from various industries in different countries across the world, and she is excited about the opportunity to bring MOMO to an international market.
