Meet Polly McDevitt

“Empowerment of women has always been important to me. As an individual I can and do influence women in my immediate sphere. But as a Pathfinder, I can ‘empower millions of women, men, and young people to choose their own paths forward’ by contributing to the success of Pathfinder Programs. I feel incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to use my corporate experience in the support of Pathfinder’s mission.”

Polly is a collaborative leader with twenty years of financial industry experience and a strong track record of delivering results in complex environments. She works effectively in managing matrix-working teams and driving local ownership of initiatives. She is recognized as a strategic thought leader able to drill into tactics for execution. Highly effective in managing projects, initiatives and teams to meet and exceed goals.
