Monica A. Gould
President and Founder
Strategic Consulting Partners
Gould oversees the management consulting firms’ operations, business development, and client relation activities. She also serves as the project sponsor and project leader on some of the firm’s client engagements
She founded the company in 1994. She said for the first decade, she was a ‘solopreneur’ and the sole contributor to our firm. Demand for its services precipitated the growth of the firm.
She’s proud that Strategic Consulting Partners was named SBA Woman-Owned Business of the Year for Eastern Pennsylvania in 2018. Gould said this accomplishment solidified the company as a nationally recognized, award-winning, management consulting firm.
Life lessons she would like to share: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again. She said perseverance, tenacity, and grit is required of small business owners to ensure success and longevity. Gould added that hard work, excellent service and care for our clients, and a commitment to quality is what sets Strategic Consulting Partners apart. “Our firm has grown and evolved over time the past 26 years by learning and adapting our services to meet the current market and industry needs,” she said.
She enjoys gardening and taking long walks on the family’s farm. “Being outdoors, getting my hands in the dirt, watching plants grow, and enjoying the fruits of our labor is invigorating. My walks center me and provide me with a connection to the earth that is truly spiritual,” Gould said.
