Posted: November 23, 2018

Pipedream has recruited Tami Aguilar to a newly developed position, VP of people. Tami comes to Pipedream with 20 plus years of experience in HR, working her way up from an HR assistant while attaining her bachelor’s degree, to her most recent position at Amgen—one of the world’s largest biotechnology companies—where she evolved over a 15-year tenure from HR manager to head of quality for HR.

“The next chapter of Pipedream’s success is largely predicated on its people and culture and we are excited to have Tami join us: her aptitude, experience, and high bar make her an asset to the Pipedream team,” said Pipedream CEO Matthew Matsudaira. “Tami will play a pivotal role in the company’s future growth by helping us attract and develop strong and diverse talent that will enable us to achieve greater success.”

Pipedream says it prioritises not just the goals of the company, but its employees’ personal career aspirations as well, and Tami will spearhead this initiative by fostering a culture that ensures employee growth by implementing new programmes for company-wide talent development. She will strive to establish Pipedream as ‘the employer of choice’ to not only to retain its existing talent, but also to attract new talent with diverse backgrounds that will enhance the business’ continued growth. She will also work to update and streamline the company’s HR processes and systems.

“I believe in the vision and leadership principles of Pipedream,” said Aguilar. “I look forward to being part of this upward momentum and hope to make a lasting impact on the company.”
