Ta Juana M. Tang, Principal
Ms. Tang believes that compliance, community outreach and diversity inclusion is about strengthening the communities in which her clients do business; creating economic opportunities for the residents within the community and economic sustainability for the businesses that anchor the community. In November 2008, Ms. Tang established Tandem Ventures based upon that belief.
As Principal of Tandem Ventures, Ms. Tang is responsible for the day-to-day management of the firm’s regulatory compliance portfolio and all community outreach and diversity initiatives.
With over 14-years experience managing and enforcing regulatory programs across the Chicagoland area, Ms. Tang’s experience has given her the opportunity to develop solid relationships with industry leaders and an expansive list of ward Alderman, intergovernmental agencies and community groups. Clients and Alderman alike have come to know and trust Ms. Tang for her continuous delivery of successfully managed projects.
Ms. Tang has been responsible for the enforcement and management of compliance on multiple CHA, HUD, City of Chicago and IHDA funded projects. Her project resume includes the CHA redevelopment of the Ida B. Wells Housing Development, now Arches of Oakwood Shores, the NAVTEQ Data Center, in addition to a list of commercial, senior housing and mixed-use projects.
Prior to establishing Tandem Ventures, Ms. Tang served as Director of Compliance and Community Relations for a sizeable general contracting firm based in Chicago. As Director of Compliance and Community Relations, Ms. Tang was responsible for managing compliance and community outreach initiatives on a $55M per year project portfolio.
Ms. Tang places a great focus on philanthropic initiatives as an additional portal to enfranchising communities and its residents by way of fundraising efforts, in-kind support and volunteering. When Ms. Tang isn’t spearheading events, she’s helping to advance and stabilize the lives of children and adolescents at SOS Children’s Village of Illinois where she is both a Mentor and Advisory Board member for the organization. Ms. Tang also sits on the Strategic Planning Board for Roseland Community Hospital.
