President & Owner, Pamela J. Arment Consulting

For more than 15 years, Arment has advised a wide range of cable and telecom clients on engineering and project management services. She’s living the advice she would give her teenage self: “When presented with an opportunity embrace it, especially if it takes you outside of your current comfort level.” Arment is a key member of the program management team responsible for tackling technical information required to support Charter’s acquisition of Time Warner Cable. Not surprisingly, she lists Charter’s acquisition of TWC as the biggest story of 2016. She brings not only solid technical, but also people management, project/program management and communications skills to her long list of clients. In 1995, Arment became the very first recipient of the Women in Technology Award, presented by WICT, SCTE and Cablefax.

 

Which sector of the cable industry best demonstrates gender equality? Which could use some enlightenment? 

I can’t address which sector best demonstrates gender equality but, as in most industries, the challenge is prevalent in the technology and engineering sectors.

 

What advice would you give your 13-year-old self? 

When presented with an opportunity embrace it, especially if it takes you outside of your current comfort level.

 

What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?

Charter’s acquisition of TWC.
