A Massachusetts native with an interest in public service, Pam Miniati graduated from Tufts University with a degree in American Studies before heading to Washington, DC to become an important member of the staff of Congressman Ted Weiss and later Senator Patty Murray. Her experience in Congress is where she learned the art and influence of bringing people together.
Miniati would continue her education and obtain an MBA in finance, marketing, and policy at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Miniati put her talents to use at Ernst & Young Healthcare Consulting, where she helped a major West Coast hospital system develop a state-of-the-art shared services center for non-clinical services. Miniati was instrumental in growing the business from 0 to 400 people within two years.
For more than two decades, Miniati worked with startups and spearheaded programs in technology, healthcare, and non-profit industries. Her experience includes six years at the San Jose, California-based startup Neoforma, Inc., a leading provider of supply chain management solutions for hospitals and their suppliers. She managed their largest customer, served as Director of Product Management and Product Marketing, and successfully orchestrated the launch of four major software releases for their supply chain e-commerce platform.
Miniati relocated to Tampa with her husband and, in 2016, became the final member of FIBA’s inaugural team. Miniati has directed 8 FIBA programs with 75 Israeli companies and is now Co-Executive Director along with Rakefet Phillips.
