The Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce has announced the appointment of Pamela Caldwell Pim to the role of membership development manager.

Caldwell Pim is responsible for engaging with various legislative bodies and business organisations on behalf of the Chamber, which acts as a focal point for Irish Australian business.

Having spent 20 years working in senior leadership roles in both Ireland and Australia, Caldwell Pim has established an extensive global business network.

Her career began in Dell, before transitioning to roles in IBM, Lenovo and subsequently CPL, where she undertook a position as south-east business development manager. In 2015, she joined Bank of Ireland, where her responsibilities included the delivery of the bank’s business development and customer engagement strategies, while simultaneously serving as a board member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce.

Returning to Australia in 2020, Caldwell Pim assumed the role of commercial business adviser for New Zealand Trade and Enterprise. In this capacity, she led efforts to grow the footprint of Kiwi businesses across Australia.

The Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce, led by chief executive Barry Corr, is the kindred network, committed to providing tangible value and bringing fruitful opportunities to its members.

Corr said, “I am delighted to welcome Pamela on board, and I am confident of the value that she will bring to the senior leadership team here at the Chamber. Australia and Ireland have long enjoyed a warm bilateral relationship across multiple facets – trade, investment, and culture. Pamela’s extensive career working at the helm of business development renders her well placed to further these connections and provide crucial networking opportunities for Chamber members.”

Caldwell Pim said, “I am grateful to have been appointed to the position of membership development manager of the Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce. In assuming this new position, I am looking forward to connecting with our new and existing members while overseeing the implementation of a full-suite membership engagement strategy to continue growing the Chamber’s offering to all.”
