Pam Wood Pam loves working closely with decision-makers and change-makers, getting an understanding of what makes them tick, and then determining how to best assist them, which usually means being a step ahead, anticipating what they need before they even realize it. Staying uber-organized, having the ability to multi-task at all times, remaining calm under pressure, and always having the boss’ back and Bruce and Juan really love that about Pam.
