Mid-Atlantic PBS is pleased to announce our newest branch chiefs: Caitlin Zaslow as Workplace Branch Chief in the Design and Construction Division and Pamela Pollard as Risk Management Branch Chief in the Facilities Management Division.

Caitlin Zaslow in Design and Construction

PBS’ Design and Construction Division provides design, architectural, engineering and interior design technical expertise, both through in-house and contracted services, to support the planning and execution of new construction and repair and alteration projects. They also work closely with the Acquisition Management Division in support of executing studies, design, and construction projects.

After working with GSA through a co-op with Drexel University in Philadelphia, Zaslow graduated with a degree in Interior Design and joined GSA full time in 2007. One of her many accomplishments was her work on GSA’s Regional Office Building space in Philadelphia. It continues to be a showcase of GSA services that our customers and visitors still tour.

She currently serves as the Mid-Atlantic Region liaison between the national GSA Center for Workplace Strategy. As Workplace Branch Chief, Zaslow will leverage her expertise in interior design, workplace strategies and customer engagements. In this new role, Zaslow states, “I’m so excited to lead the workplace solutions and interior design teams and look forward to assisting our customers with strategic decisions regarding their office space and the future of work.”

Pollard joined GSA in 2007 as a building management specialist in the Delaware Valley Field Office and then transitioned to the Philadelphia Field Office. Here she served as the building manager for the James A. Byrne U.S. Courthouse and then became the supervisory operations manager in 2014. She broadened her GSA experience with her move to the Portfolio Management Division as a client planning manager, working very closely with the Judiciary on requirements development for high-level projects.

As Risk Management Branch Chief, Pollard brings a wealth of field office, customer, and communications knowledge and expertise to the position. She is a Penn State graduate and a designated Building Owners and Managers Association Real Property Administrator and Facilities Management Administrator.

In her new position, Pollard states, “I am thrilled to join the facilities management community and utilize my field office and programmatic background in this new role.
