Pittsburgh mayor-elect adds Debra Lam to Executive Team.

On November 7, Pittsburgh mayor-elect Bill Peduto announced his cabinet, "most talented and diverse Mayoral cabinet in Pittsburgh’s history, and perhaps the entire country". Among its members is Debra Lam, a Pittsburgh native who has previously lived and worked in Hong Kong. From a profile on the new Chief Innovation & Performance officer:
A native of Pittsburgh, Debra is returning to her hometown with her husband John after living and working in New York, the United Kingdom, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

She is a graduate of North Hills Senior High School, graduated cum laude from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, and earned a Masters in Public Policy from the University of California, Berkeley.
. . .
While Debra has lived and worked across the globe, and speaks Mandarin and Cantonese, she is excited to return and help transform Pittsburgh into an innovative, world class city.
