Anna Schneider

I enjoy a difficult, challenging project and figuring out ways to overcome and get it to green through strong communication, detailed understanding of risks and issues, and transparency with leaders to provide the information to make critical business decisions.

Prior to ad Astra, I spent 20+ years at Avantage and Codiqa, starting as a developer building compensation survey and market pricing tools. I continued to grow in leadership and project management, ultimately leading the Application Development group for the consulting side of AonHewitt. We built a strong offshore team with Manish Mehra, who now leads our UK team. Having such a great team makes my job as president and cofounder much easier. The best parts of my day are when I get to collaborate with the brilliant people who work here.

I am a leader in the delivery of Project and Program Management solutions for New Jersey. I am also an Account Manager for an insurance client, where we have implemented large-scale process, program, and technology solutions over the past 5 years, working alongside a strong team of Ad Astra consultants.
Our consultants are willing to roll up their sleeves, dig into the details, and get the work done to make the project successful for our clients.

Get to Know Me

I am happily married with two great teenagers and feel blessed for my time with family and friends. I enjoy volunteering in the community through our high school booster club, Boy Scouts, and our church. In the summer, you can find me relaxing at our cottage in Michigan, at a rooftop bar in Chicago, or reading a book on our porch.

In the winter, I enjoy skiing with my family, Ad Astra happy hours in the Loop, and trying the latest restaurants with my neighbors and friends.
