Mayor Tom Menino and Jack Connors Honored with Centennial Award

Throughout the Chamber's 100 year history, there has been a small, special group of legendary leaders who have come to epitomize the soul and the spirit of Boston.

They have come from both the public and private sectors, and made an enduring mark on our community.

At the Centennial Celebration on May 19,2009, the Chamber honored two of these leaders who have brought business and government together for the benefit of Boston.

In the private sector we recognized Jack Connors, co-founder and chairman emeritus of Hill Holliday, chairman of Partners Healthcare, and a towering figure in the business community.

And in the public sector we honored Mayor Tom Menino – soon to be Boston’s longest serving Mayor, a champion of education, and one of the great political figures in the city’s history.

Jack and Tom are iconic figures, not only for what they have accomplished in business and government, but for their continued leadership in our community.
