Pamela McFadden joined Fathom Systems Ltd in March 2009 as Procurement Specialist. This was a challenging new position within the company as up until then all requirements were engineering lead and driven. Always up for a challenge, Pamela has successfully maintained the existing supplier base and introduced new vendors to Fathom Systems whilst maintaining the highest personal, professional and ethical standards. The introduction of a new MRP system in October 2012 saw a new set of challenges, but Pamela’s ability and previous experience of an SAP transition whilst at Subsea 7 helped to ensure that the introduction of our Kingfisher system benefited the Purchasing Department. Pamela is currently responsible for all Fathom Systems’ purchasing needs from RFQ through to PO commitment, expediting, working closely with the Engineering and Drafting teams, production and stores.
As part of our ISO accreditation, we now maintain a ‘Top 20’ vendors list and Pamela’s role as Procurement Manager includes arranging supplier visits to ensure good business relationships are maintained. Previously, Pamela was employed by Subsea Offshore/Subsea 7 as an Expeditor and Project Co-ordinator then moved into the Purchasing Department. Prior to that, Pamela worked in the specialist packaging industry as an Internal Sales Correspondent and then progressed to Scottish Sales Manager covering Scotland and the North of England. Pamela feels that her previous sales experience is beneficial in her purchasing role as it allows her to see things from the supplier’s and customer’s point of view. Pamela was educated at Mackie Academy, Stonehaven and is a member of MCIPS.
