Pamela Richmond is a bright star in the galaxy of people working hard to facilitate the growing commercial boom that is taking Nashville into ever increasing international prominence with universal appeal. She is a ‘new member representative’ with the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, and as a new business representative her position is responsible for increasing business membership.

“Being part of creating change has always been important to me throughout my life and professional career,” said Richmond. “God gave me the heart of compassion for assisting people in identifying the direction they are trying to take their businesses, and a ministry to create positive change in people’s lives, and I’m on a mission to get that done.”

Pamela was born in California and grew up in over six states, including Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Montana, Missouri, and finally North Carolina. Growing up, her father was a leader in their community working for the government, so the family moved when he was promoted.

She accepted a full athletic volley-ball scholarship and earned a degree in communications from Jefferson College in Missouri, and then continued her education on full scholarship at Ohio University while studying ‘broadcast journalism.’ Pamela and her husband recently celebrated their 20th anniversary and are very proud parents of their nine-year-old daughter.

Pamela exercised her desire to create positive change in communities throughout her professional career in all most aspects of the media including film, television, radio, newspaper and Internet. She received accolades and recognition for sales accomplishments and her creative work in markets such as Little Rock, Memphis, Seattle, and Nashville while building professional relationships with Fortune 500 companies as well as small family owned businesses. This experience allowed her to have extreme versatility, understanding and a well-rounded perspective in business relationships, something she believes is necessary for progress.

“’Relate-ability’ is the key to success,” she said. “I never meet a stranger and I’m not limited to learning from all types of people. You will be surprised at who will teach you the most in your life. Be open, listen, learn and be sure to laugh often!”
The purpose of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce is to facilitate community leadership to create economic prosperity. Pamela’s focus at the Chamber is on speaking with CEO’s, business owners, community leaders, and organizations that are interested in achieving a strong business voice within this region.

“Now is the time to capitalize on the ever increasing interest the nation has on Nashville,” said Richmond.
