BOSTON (PRWEB) October 03, 2018
The Harvard Business School Association of Boston (HBSAB), one of the world’s largest alumni clubs of Harvard Business School, will recognize Stephen Pagliuca, HBS MBA class of 1982, as Business & Community Leader of the Year at its Inaugural Leadership Dinner to be held on October 3rd at the Harvard Club.
Pagliuca currently serves as Co-Chairman of Bain Capital, a global private investment firm with more than $100 billion in assets under management, and Managing Partner and Co-Owner of the Boston Celtics.
In addition to honoring its first ever Business & Community Leader of the Year, the event will highlight the club’s mission to connect leaders who make a difference in the world. HBSAB reaches over 8,000 HBS alumni in the Greater Boston area.
“We are elated to honor Stephen Pagliuca as our Business & Community Leader of the Year,” said Stephen Pittman, President, HBSAB. “His unwavering dedication, commitment, and leadership contribution to numerous civic projects and charitable causes for children have helped and inspired people in the Boston area and beyond. He clearly embodies the mission of HBS and HBSAB.”
Pagliuca has had a long affiliation with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, among numerous other nonprofit organizations. "During more than a decade of serving as Chairman to MSPCC, Steve's leadership, dedication and steadfast support made a real difference in the lives of thousands of children by keeping them safe, healthy and thriving,” said Mary McGeown, Executive Director, MSPCC.
In addition, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey stated, “Greater Boston’s strength comes from leaders who make our community’s well-being their personal responsibility. Steve Pagliuca exemplifies that commitment. We’ve worked together to protect civil rights, stand against racism, and advance opportunity for all Massachusetts residents. Steve’s philanthropic and civic leadership has improved the lives of countless children and families in our state. I commend HBSAB for their choice.”
Wyc Grousbeck, Managing Partner and Lead Owner of the Boston Celtics, added, “Since I’ve known him and worked with him, Steve has always stood out as a leader in using the power of sports to promote community service and development. He spends time with our players every year giving back in big and small ways to organizations working every day to make our city a better place to live. That spirit gets passed on, leaving a powerful mark on the young people who look up to pro athletes and inspire them to reach for their own dreams.”
HBSAB’s community outreach and initiatives include its award-winning Community Action Partners (CAP) program that empowers Harvard Business School and Kennedy School alumni to channel their business expertise to create impact in the nonprofit sector.
