Pam McCarthy

SVP, Director of People & Talent

Pam is a “people person,” which makes her title at Palisades MediaGroup especially relevant. Like Laura Bracken, Pam started her career at Saatchi & Saatchi (though on the opposite coast in LA). Moving up through the ranks from Account Service, Traffic, and Office Management, she rose to the role of Senior Vice President, Director of Human Resources and found her niche. She also served as Vice President, Director of HR for Davis Elen Advertising, and in both roles helped to launch the careers of many successful people in the LA advertising community. Pam joined Palisades MediaGroup in 2013 to oversee employee relations, payroll, benefits, the hiring and onboarding of talent, and to contribute to the success of the company by supporting the agency’s positive, “employee friendly” culture of excellent work and camaraderie.

Pam is a regular volunteer in her South Bay community and has been an active Ad Relief board member for many years. She is currently serving her second term as President. Pam enjoys spending time with her grown children and their families as well as traveling domestically and internationally.
