Pamela Johnston, a digital technology executive who has held senior leadership positions at a succession of high-profile firms throughout the United States and abroad, has been elected to the Santa Barbara Symphony Board of Directors.

Ms. Johnston simultaneously earned undergraduate degrees in music (oboe performance) and mechanical engineering at the University of Cincinnati before completing an MBA at Harvard Business School. After brief stints as a structural engineer at General Motors and as a consultant at Boston Consulting Group, she was named manager of corporate strategy at Motorola near Chicago, and went on to hold positions with the company in Florida and Hong Kong. She later served as vice president at PulsePoint Communications, Shipper.com, Level 3 Communications, Yahoo, and DIVX. From 2008 to 2011, she served as both general manager and chief operating officer at Recycler.com. Most recently, Ms. Johnston served as senior vice president of client services at CJ Affiliate by Conversant (formerly Commission Junction). She currently heads her own Santa Barbara-based consulting firm, whose clients have included Lynda.com, Pandora.com, and Blurb.com. 

“Pamela boasts an extraordinary record of success as a senior executive in the technology industry, and is an accomplished musician to boot. Her broad leadership experience and advanced analytical skills are certain to prove advantageous as we plan for the future. My colleagues and I are very excited to be working with her,” said Symphony Board President Arthur Swalley.

The Santa Barbara Symphony was founded in 1953 on the belief that a special city deserves a special orchestra. Consistently lauded for its unique ability to present brilliant concerts, engage the community, and deliver dynamic music education programs, the organization prizes both innovation and artistic excellence, and is widely recognized as one of the region’s premier cultural institutions. Its award-winning Music Education Center serves more than 8,000 students throughout Santa Barbara County each year. Charismatic Israeli conductor Nir Kabaretti was appointed music director of the Santa Barbara Symphony in 2006. For additional information, visit www.thesymphony.org.

From reading her bio here, I'd say she's a great catch for our symphony board.

Welcome!

What's the definition of an optimist? An oboist with a mortgage.

Why was the oboist arrested? Because she was always in treble.

Should I quit now?
