As President and CEO of Exponent Partners, Rem strives to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of nonprofit organizations by optimizing their operations and supporting their business processes with technology. After more than ten years of working with corporations and government, Rem founded Exponent Partners to bring the best tools of the commercial world to the nonprofit sector.
Prior to founding Exponent Partners, Rem built and led a 150-person IT services team in Washington, DC. In this capacity, he designed, marketed, and operated large-scale IT outsourcing programs for government and commercial clients, including the United States Postal Service and Time Warner. Before that, as an independent consultant, Rem served leading nonprofits including CompuMentor and CompassPoint, as well as commercial technology firms including Intuit, Qwest, Wang Global, and Exodus Communications.
As an extension of Rem’s vision for creating a stronger social sector community, he serves on the board of the Center for What Works. In his spare time, Rem shares his love for sailing and cycling with his young son, who seems more interested in trains, trucks, and all things mechanical. They often compromise by playing with Legos.
Rem earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the University of Maryland at College Park.
