Pamela O’Rourke

CEO, ICON Information Consultants

When Pamela initially formed the company in 1998, she was the sole employee. However, with her entrepreneurial spirit and understanding of how to grow a business, Pamela grew ICON into a thriving organization with thousands of employees across the United States and Canada.

With more than 15 years of IT knowledge and experience, Pamela has performed all aspects of client integration, network engineering, infrastructure, project management, application development, training and documentation. She earned her BBA in Information Systems and Management from the University of Houston. Consequently, she is able to understand the client’s needs and match qualified technical consultants accordingly, significantly increasing the success of the business.

Named as an Ernst & Young “Entrepreneur of the Year®” and recently selected as an Houston Business Journal’s Most Admired CEO Honoree, Pamela thrives on being a mentor and leads by example. She believes that giving back is an important strategy; one which she demonstrates through her continuous support of women-owned companies. Pamela is a past National Board Member of Women Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and a past Board Member for Women’s Business Council-Southwest (WBCS). She is a current board member of Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) and University of Houston Board of Visitors. In addition, Pamela is a member of Committee of 200 (C200).

In her free time, Pamela enjoys cheering on her alma mater’s Cougars.
