Pamela Swedlund Resume - 2015

After 14 years with Koch Industries, my time with the company has sadly come to an end. For business reasons beyond the company's control, my role has been eliminated. However, I am leaving on the best of terms and would love to share my experiences at Koch and INVISTA with you. I'm looking for a new opportunity in the Wichita, Kansas area.
