Christopher’s Haven, a Boston-based 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to operate a supportive community consisting of fully-furnished temporary apartments and a community recreation area for families of children being treated for cancer at nearby hospitals, welcomes two new members to their Board of Directors.

Stephen Rothwell is Co-founder, President &CEO of Inspired Technology and Communications, based in Easton, Mass. He has exceptional experience in business management and Computer Information Systems with an impressive track record of growth and success leading the business. Stephen was always involved in his family business. As a child, he would spend time at the office with his dad, playing with circuit boards and solder wires. During the summer months while in college, Stephen would work in the office on sales and marketing projects as well as helping management define policies and practices to better help the business. During his senior year at Bryant University, Stephen split his time between managing the business and attending his college classes. In 2009, Stephen and his brother Brian decided to expand the family business and created Inspired Technology with a focus on integration and educating new and existing customers on what services and technology they could offer.

Stephen graduated from Bryant University with a bachelor’s degree in business management and minored in both computer information systems and psychology.

“Christopher’s Haven is an outstanding organization that Inspired Technology and Communications has been proud to partner with and support over the years,” said Stephen Rothwell. “I look forward to creating a long relationship with this important organization and find even more ways to collaborate through my work on the Board of Directors.”

David Lane is the Vice President of Property Management for Equity Residential in Boston.

David is responsible for the day-to-day operations and execution of business strategy for Equity Residential’s multi-family holdings in the New England market. He is a veteran in the multi-family housing industry and has enjoyed a career with Equity spanning 20+ years, beginning in Orlando, Florida in 1998.

David is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and moved his family from the warm confines of Florida in 2016 to reap the benefits of working in the City of Champions! Outside of work, David is a devoted father of two young children and an avid sports enthusiast. He and his wife Nancy live in Wakefield, Mass. and are passionate about teaching their children the values of kindness, philanthropy, and acceptance.

“Equity Residential’s commitment to community service is exemplified by its long-standing support of Christopher’s Haven’s critical mission to provide housing and compassion to those who are in great need,” said David Lane. “Our ability to play a part in providing homes to so many children and their families over the years as they undergo cancer treatment has been a rewarding experience for all of those involved. I am looking forward to being even more personally involved with this great organization.”

With this additional extensive experience coming to the Christopher’s Haven Board of Directors, the organization is hopeful and poised to provide a home and resources to even more children and their families while they battle cancer.
