CEO Pamela Maynard believes Avanade’s purpose is to make a genuine human impact. She is committed to Avanade’s vision: to be the leading digital innovator, creating great experiences as we realize results for our clients and their customers through the power of people and the Microsoft ecosystem. She says three of the most important things she does are to make sure our clients are successful on their digital journeys, ensure we stay on the pulse of the next wave of technology, and make sure our Avanade team feels inspired, confident and cared for.

Before being named CEO in September 2019, Pamela was President of Product and Innovation, focused on defining and delivering innovative solutions for our clients. Earlier in her Avanade career she was President of our European organization after serving as General Manager of Avanade UK.

Pamela is a passionate supporter of diversity and inclusion and is the executive sponsor of our Women’s Employee Resource Group, which inspires women and empowers connections to drive personal and professional growth and innovation. She also is executive sponsor of our Technology for Social Good initiative, through which we bring the power of our cloud and digital technology skills and expertise to non-profit organizations, digitally transforming their work and accelerating their social impact.

Pamela draws inspiration from the varied backgrounds and cultures she encounters as she travels the world. When she is not meeting with clients or inspiring our teams, you will find her enjoying time with family and friends.
