PAMELA DALEY L’79 has brought good things to GE. That’s why she recently received the Chairman’s Leadership Award, an honor reserved for an employee making an outstanding contribution to the company’s growth initiatives. The company donates $25,000 to the award winner’s local charity of choice, in Daley’s case the Connecticut Audubon Society.
She won the annual award, announced at the Global Leadership Meeting in January, for demonstrating extraordinary initiative in her job as Vice President and Senior Counsel for Transactions. In this role, Daley is responsible for GE’s merger and acquisition activities worldwide, which in 2003 included GE’s combination of Vivendi Universal and NBC, GE’s acquisition of Amersham plc, and GE’s spin-off of its life and mortgage insurance businesses.
In presenting the award, GE Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey R. Immelt praised Daley’s “tough mindedness, her ability to focus on a deal and do what’s right for the company, but also being balanced … with partners. I have just never seen anybody who could sustain the level of attention and the intensity that Pam can and I really want to recognize Pam for a great job this year.”
Daley is a member of the Law School’s Board of Overseers and the Law Alumni Society. She taught Federal Income Taxation of Partners and Partnerships at Penn Law for eight years, and has also been a lecturer at Columbia Law School and Harvard Law School. A member of the Board of Advisors of the World Wildlife Fund, Daley appeared as one of 30 “Significant Women” in a 1998 feature in Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and a number of other publications.
