Per Scholas Strengthens National Leadership Team With Two New Appointments

BRONX, N.Y. (June 28, 2024) — National nonprofit Per Scholas has appointed two new members of their National Leadership Team. Pam Kingpetcharat has been named the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Brittany Murrey as the Executive Vice President of Talent Solutions. Both women will support Per Scholas’ commitment to advancing economic equity and an ambitious plan to train 10,000 people yearly.

As CFO, Pam Kingpetcharat is responsible for financial planning and reporting, operations, budgeting, risk management, accounting and finance, payroll, and auditing functions. As Per Scholas evolves, Pam is responsible for ensuring that fiscal actions align with organizational objectives and priorities to train technologists with our no-cost training model.

Pam has more than 20 years of experience in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. In the private sector, she advised leading multinational corporations, organizations, and government agencies about Information and Communications Technology policy, strategy and operations management, public finance management and reform, change management, and organizational effectiveness. Pam’s appointment took effect in June.

“I am excited to join Per Scholas and align our mission with our fiscal actions,” stated Pam Kingpetcharat. “The work I will do here mirrors one of my favorite quotes from Mixine Hong Kingston, ‘To me success means effectiveness in the world, that I am able to carry my ideas and values into the world – that I am able to change it in positive ways.’ I will carry my ideas and values to Per Scholas to advance our mission.”

As Executive Vice President of Talent Solutions, Brittany Murrey will lead the Talent Solutions team collaborating  with our more than 850 employer partners – from Fortune 500 companies to innovative startups – building sustainable and diverse talent pipelines, together changing the face of tech. With national remote training and campuses in more than 20 cities and growing, Brittany collaborates with our training and development teams to foster high-demand tech skills, including Cloud, Cybersecurity, Data Engineering, IT Support, and Software Engineering, and to close the widening skills gap for businesses. 

Brittany is a business and workforce development professional with experience advising employers about how to attract and engage diverse talent pools and improve career pathways for people from underserved communities. Recently, she supported the launch of an employer advisory department at the Center for Employment Opportunities with the goal of improving career pathways for job seekers facing employment barriers. Brittany’s appointment took effect in January.

“Per Scholas’ business model is evolving just like the tech industry is. I look forward to collaborating with leading businesses and our training and development teams to create diverse, robust tech talent solutions,” reflected Brittany Murrey. “As we continue to change the face of tech, we will also provide innovative hiring solutions for our employer partners.”

“Each year, Per Scholas trains more future technologists in the skills they need to be competitive and ready for a variety of roles, and our organization needs innovative leaders to continue our mission. I’m thrilled about Kim and Brittany’s appointments to Per Scholas’ National Leadership Team – as Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President of Talent Solutions –  and know that with their expertise, knowledge, and leadership, Per Scholas will continue to increase economic equity and advance opportunity throughout America,” said Plinio Ayala, President and CEO of Per Scholas.
