Supervisory Special Agent and Manager for the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate
Summit Exercises and Training® (SummitET®), a preparedness solutions company®, announces the appointment of Pamela Piersanti as Vice President of Programs and Strategy.
Pamela’s appointment will provide SummitET’s private sector and governmental customers with the highest level of focus to help them build and improve capabilities necessary to prevent, protect against, mitigate the effects of, respond to, and recover from all-hazard threats. In her new role, Pamela will oversee SummitET programs, delivering cutting edge tailored preparedness solutions.
“Our programs and strategic focus are at the heart of everything we do at SummitET and provide our customers immense value,” says John Duda, Chief Executive Officer. “The appointment of Pamela to this new role demonstrates our commitment to our customers to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations and continue operating our programs at the highest level. Pamela’s diverse expertise in law enforcement and managing national preparedness programs across critical infrastructure and threats involving Weapons of Mass Destruction make her the ideal person to lead our programs.”
With twenty-seven years of experience, Pamela recently retired from the FBI as a Supervisory Special Agent and Manager for the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate. Her key accomplishments included significant contributions to Presidential counterterrorism national policy and leading the development of the National Prevention Framework and Federal Interagency Operational Plan that describes what the whole community – from community members to senior leaders in government – should do upon credible, specific, and imminent terrorist threats or ongoing attacks against the United States. Before joining the FBI, Pamela served as an Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and as a Special Agent of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. She also has an M.A. degree in Criminology with Leadership in WMD, and a B.S. degree in Forensic Science.
“I am eager to take on this new role and lead an amazing team of preparedness experts,” commented Pamela. “One of our greatest strengths is the experience and expertise of our employees comprised of former members of U.S. departments and agencies, and state and local governments responsible for reducing risk, building preparedness capability, and affording an effective threat response. We pride ourselves on our proactive approaches to build a system of preparedness that is designed to mitigate threats we face today and those we will undoubtedly face tomorrow.”
