Director of Product, Marketing Technology, The New York Times
Pamela Della Motta built her career in Marketing specifically in the area of Marketing Operations. She joined The New York Times in 2013 as a manager in Marketing Operations which presented to her the unique position to learn all about the technology ecosystem that supported marketing campaign execution, it's complexities and opportunities to modernize. Also in this role she took the initiative to intimately understand the critical part big data plays in the everyday operations of marketing. At a time when new marketing technology was being aggressively invested, Pamela identified an opportunity to rationalize the marketing technology stack by surfacing gaps and redundancies within the stack and shining a spotlight in the technology and data silos that existed.
She transitioned to a product management role within the Technology organization earlier this year where she manages a team of product managers focused on overseeing a MarTech product portfolio consisting of marketing tools like marketing automation, CDP's, web content management systems, microservices for marketing data and A/B testing platforms. It is in this role that she discovered her team was in an unique position to bridge the cultural divide between the marketing and technology organizations and is working with colleagues in both marketing and technology towards enabling these two organizations to work even better together.
