“The Board and staff of the Barnes Foundation join me in welcoming Pamela Bundy to the Board of Trustees,” said Mr. Joseph Neubauer, Chairman of the Barnes Foundation Board of Trustees. “In her professional and civic endeavors Pamela has distinguished herself as a leader and we look forward to benefiting from her expertise in our work to advance the mission of this world-class institution.”
“The mission of the Barnes Foundation echoes my own wholehearted interest in making the arts accessible to those who otherwise would not have the opportunity to engage,” said Pamela Bundy. “I am honored to serve the Barnes’s diverse communities and to help build on the foundation’s growth and success.”
Pamela Bundy founded Bundy Development Corporation (BDC) as a vehicle to realize her vision for thriving city neighborhoods in her adopted hometown of Washington, D.C. Over the past decade, BDC has been a pioneer in urban-style development which has been an integral part of the rebirth of Washington’s downtown. BDC has been a partner in the development of two of the City’s largest mixed-use projects: CityVista, a $300 million development that provided more than 685 condominiums and approximately 100,000 square feet of retail space; and “CityCenter,” a $1 billion, 10 acre, mixed-use development.
Ms. Bundy began her professional career in corporate management. She became certified as a real estate appraiser and opened her own appraisal firm. She is a graduate of Lincoln University and an alumna of Harvard Business School’s Executive Owner President Manager (OPM) management program.
Ms. Bundy has received numerous awards, including: the 2014 CREW (Commercial Real Estate Women) Placemaking Award; CREW’s 2011 Network Impact Award; and the Washington Business Journal’s 2008 Minority Business Leader Award.

Under her leadership, BDC was nominated for Black Enterprise’s “Emerging Company of the Year” award in 2001.
Ms. Bundy is involved with several prestigious civic organizations. She is an appointed board member of the Executive Committee of the District of Columbia Building Industry Association; a former member of the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) Executive Council; a 2003 member of Leadership Greater Washington; and a member of Commercial Real Estate for Women (CREW).
