Lombardi Retires After 20 Years

October 7, 2010 | Faculty

After 20 years of service at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, Pam Lombardi retired from her positions as director of alumni affairs and assistant dean for career services and external affairs last week. Pam came to Moritz in 1990 to work in Career Services, and in her tenure at the College she has captained both that ship and Alumni Affairs. Her extraordinary creativity, professionalism, and care for the College allowed her to be a valued advisor to nearly everyone she encountered at the law school.

“Pam has served as a trusted mentor and invaluable source for innumerable members of the Moritz community,” Dean Alan Michaels said. “We have benefited from her special contributions in more ways than we can count.”

Pam’s many responsibilities in Career Services and Alumni Affairs will be split amongst two people. Kathy Zets has come on board as director of alumni affairs and donor relations. Zets brings years of experience in stewardship, donor relations, and volunteer board management to the school. She has served as the associate director of stewardship and donor relations at Ohio State’s James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, and most recently as board liaison for the James Cancer Hospital’s Foundation Board.

Linda Jones, who has shared leadership of Career Services for the past two years with Pam, will take on the leadership of that critical unit as senior director of career services. Linda joined Career Services with over 15 years of experience in the recruitment and professional development of law students and attorneys. Before moving to Ohio, she was the director of legal personnel for the New York law firms Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy and Lord Day & Lord, Barrett Smith.
