Business leader is new chairwoman at Salem State

SALEM — Danvers resident and businesswoman Pamela Scott was recently appointed the new chairwoman of Salem State University. Since 2009, she has been bringing her extensive business background, her knowledge of corporate and nonprofit finance, and her leadership skills to the school as a trustee.

She has also served in various leadership roles with a number of nonprofits over the years, including with the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, The Boston Club and Girls Inc. of Lynn.

Scott broke ground at the start of her business career in the 1970s when she became the first African-American woman to graduate from the Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.

Her more than 30 years of sales and management experience in banking and financial services began at Citibank in the mid-1970s, and she has held various positions at other New York-area investment firms. At State Street Corp. in Boston, she held various senior roles that put her in touch with public pension fund investors, schools and nonprofit organizations.

A former director of Danvers Bancorp, the holding company of the former Danversbank, she is the president and CEO of LVCC Inc., a consulting firm that aims to help companies and organizations grow.

How can your business background help Salem State?

I think I can contribute in a variety of ways because the kind of things that I have done in business include a variety of functions, marketing, sales, general management with different markets in terms of types of clients: individuals, large institutions, and educational institutions and other nonprofits. I have sat in a number of seats in the business world that relate to education, relate to financial matters of large organizations and how they can be managed effectively, as well as a number of my volunteer roles that I have had for different nonprofits of different sizes and different missions. So I bring not only the business, which is substantial, 35-plus years, but also just about as many years in the nonprofit space as a volunteer.
