“Pamela is exactly what South Carolina needs – she’s smart, hard-working, and knows how to get things done. I’m proud to announce her as our next Lieutenant Governor because I know that with her help, there is no limit to where we can take South Carolina.”
– Gov. Henry McMaster
Pamela Evette brings more than 20 years of financial management, compliance and controller experience and an entrepreneurial spirit as President/CEO of Quality Business Solutions.
A trained accountant and former CFO, Evette’s primary expertise is in building payroll and HR management firms that provide a service under which an employer can outsource employee management tasks, such as payroll, employee benefits and workers’ compensation, recruiting, risk/safety management and training and development.
Evette is blessed with an incredible family support structure. Her husband, David, shares her vision and supports her goals unfailingly. They built their successful business brick-by-brick together and are partners in business and life.
A native of Ohio and the mother of three, Evette holds a B.A. in business administration, accounting and finance from Cleveland State University in Cleveland, Ohio. After moving to South Carolina in 2005, she and her husband live in Travelers Rest and enjoy spending time with their children as well as her mother, Jennie, who lives with them. Outside of work and community involvement, Evette loves supporting her children in their many activities.
Evette comes from very humble roots. Her father was a tool and die maker, so while the family was always taken care of, there were certainly no silver spoons in her home growing up. She had the unique experience to grow-up in a multi-generational household with parents and grandparents, who were there to love, and discipline, them liberally. Evette was especially close to her dad, who was the hardest working man she has ever known. During Evette’s formative years, her father coached and provided great advice, yet at his core, he was a man of action more than words. Through his example, he instilled in his daughter a fierce work ethic, a willingness to speak truth to power, and a sincere desire to serve others. Today, these life lessons are the center of Evette’s moral compass that centers around faith, family, and personal accountability.
Her parents, her husband, her family, and her life experiences have shown Evette that positive results are accomplished when you work hard, do good and aim higher.
