The Board of Directors of the Partnership for Families, Children and Adults has appointed Pam Ladd chief executive officer.
Ladd joined the Partnership last September as COO and interim CEO. As COO, she focused on community relations and new business development. In addition, as interim CEO, Ladd led the Partnership through organizational changes to better align the agency with the strategic plan developed by the board, which includes broadening community relations, identifying growth opportunities that meet the changing needs of the community, and strengthening Partnership’s position as a leader in providing services.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Pam over the last 10 months, and am convinced there is no better leader for Partnership today,” said Carol Mastey, Partnership board chair. “Pam has demonstrated the energy and passion to make Partnership great.
“Finding a CEO who could lead the organization was a challenge we took seriously. Pam stood apart as a leader with an extraordinary ability to connect vision, people, and ideas to drive strategy and execution. The Board is confident Pam’s diverse and broad experience in community leadership and entrepreneurism as well as her passion for leading high performing teams will continue Partnership’s success in responding to the evolving needs of the community.”
Ladd was an assistant vice president at UNUM Provident, started and ran her own business for many years, and served on the Chattanooga City Council. She also provided interim executive leadership to the Women’s Fund of Chattanooga during their CEO search. Ladd received Girls, Inc.’s UnBought & UnBossed award in 2013 and is a Chattanooga Woman of Distinction.
