President and CEO
Pamela Nabors is president and CEO of CareerSource Central Florida (CSCF) – Florida’s second largest regional workforce board.
Overseeing a budget of more than $30M, Pam continues to lead the ever-evolving board to attract and engage the Central Florida community and deliver top-quality service to businesses, career seekers and partners.
Since 2012, Pam has reinvigorated the organization’s positioning as the premier workforce development board in connecting Central Floridians to careers and developing talent for businesses. Under her leadership, CSCF expanded regional partnerships, tailored service delivery to meet the needs of local businesses and executed a state-wide rebranding to leverage community outreach efforts.
Tapping into her unparalleled knowledge of workforce programs, Pam also navigated strategic efforts in implementing the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) federal legislation, which represented a major shift in operations and service delivery. CSCF’s programs were revamped to focus on businesses and services to better meet the unique needs of individuals.
Beyond operating the organization efficiently and transparently, Pam’s innovation and progressive leadership evolved CSCF’s programs to become relevant and valuable to the business and stakeholder community at large. This includes investing more in the healthcare and construction industries due to high-volume of in-demand professions. Moreover, collaborating with local educators for specialized training is a key factor in creating a deeper talent pool of qualified individuals.
