Tanya Freeman

Administration Leader

Contributing to a larger purpose is what Impetus is all about—and that inspired Tanya to join the team in 2014. Beginning as Construction Project Manager, Tanya brought 20 years of experience and expertise to what was a young company at the time. Now, as Administration Leader, she leads the cultivation of Impetus’ unique culture through company-wide interaction and employee experience initiatives. Her leadership in talent development programs and construction administration continue to drive Impetus’ dynamic growth. Through Palmisano Foundation, Tanya propels community development by implementing the foundation’s impactful initiatives and programs. 

Originally from Carriere, Mississippi, Tanya studied Business Administration at the University of Southern Mississippi and loves being part of a winning team here in New Orleans. Her commitment to excellence has earned multiple recognitions, including CityBusiness Woman of the Year Honoree, Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Bayou Chapter Member of the Year, and Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans Company Champion of the Year. She also serves on multiple boards, including ABC Bayou Chapter, Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans, and the Palmisano Foundation.

As a proven servant leader, Tanya is defined by her passion, faith, and belief in the greater good. Outside the office, she spends time with family and friends. And when she can, Tanya makes her way out to the beach with a good book—most likely a John Grisham novel.
