Board of Overseers
Senior Vice President
Please excuse the informality, but at my age I should be writing memoirs not resumes.
I am in the last decade (and hopefully the last economic cycle) of a career in commercial banking, it started in 1968. During most of that time I have been Boston-based and involved in financing closely-held businesses, making the world safe for capitalism! I am a life member of RMA, the national association of risk management professionals - it is an honor that is given for endurance, not necessarily for merit.
Beyond family and commerce, I have derived satisfaction from volunteer activity including instructing in the Community Entrepreneurship Program of the Center For Women and Enterprise, membership on the Town of Swampscott Finance Committee, coaching American Legion Baseball, and chairing the Northeast Massachusetts Division of the American Heart Association.
I also served on the Board of the North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra and as Production and Stage Manager for six of Boston Bel Canto Opera’s productions. I recently concluded service on the BPO’s Board of Directors which included a stint on the Executive Committee and as Treasurer.
Lacking a useful endowment of musical performing ability, but having well-developed critical faculties, it is a personal source of pride to be involved in the governance of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra with its tradition of uncompromising excellence.
