The Bulfinch Companies, Inc. (Bulfinch), a private real estate investment, development and management firm, announces its Managing Director and Chief Operations Officer, Pamela Yang, was named to Globe St. Women of Influence Award list of 2022 in the Corporate Executive Category.
The Globe St. Women of Influence award selection process examines a stringent set of criteria, identifying candidates based on career achievements, community outreach and mentorship within the industry.
