Pam Gunnell, SPHR, is an experienced HR practitioner with over 25 years of experience. She began her HR career with Morton before the automotive safety division was sold to Autoliv. Her path progressed from file clerk to Office Manager to HR Generalist to Production Supervisor to HR Manager to Corporate Benefits Manager/Director.

Pam is currently the Regional HR Manager for IMDS.

Pam is a true blooded Aggie; a former Aggiette who later earned her MBA. Her husband, two daughters, her father, two brothers and a sister are all alumni. Her great grandfather also attended USU, although it would have been in the late 1800s or early 1900s when Grandfather Romero attended classes at what was then called the Agricultural College of Utah. She is proud to be a former Aggiette and enjoys teaching the HR Capstone course as an Adjunct Professor.

SHRM positions held include member of the State Council for several years, Utah’s HR View’s magazine editor, Bridgerland Chapter President, and Regional HR Games judge.
