Whittier Street Health Center, a community health center with a mission to serve as a center of excellence that provides high quality and accessible health care and social services that achieve health equity, social justice, and the economic well-being of a diverse patient population, will honor David Long, executive chairman of Liberty Mutual Insurance, at its 25th Annual Roast Gala, to be held on April 6th at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
This signature fundraising event shines a light on city standout business leaders and philanthropists, blending sincere gratitude with lighthearted jests. Last year’s event was the first since 2019; the event honored Eversource Energy President and CEO Joseph R. Nolan, was attended by 600 guests, and raised $1.2 million.
As chairman of Liberty Mutual Insurance, the sixth-largest global property and casualty insurer, Long leads the company’s board of directors, overseeing corporate activities and evaluating performance on behalf of Liberty Mutual stakeholders. Long began his career with the company in 1985, holding positions of increasing responsibility in Liberty Mutual’s international, commercial markets, underwriting, financial, and mergers and acquisitions groups. He was elected chief executive officer in 2011 and served in this role until December 2022.
“David is an accomplished businessman, a generous philanthropist, and a wonderful friend of Whittier Street Health Center,” said Frederica M. Williams, president and CEO of Whittier Street Health Center. “We are looking forward to what is certain to be a fun-filled evening and tribute to David Long and Liberty Mutual Insurance for such long-standing active involvement in our communities.”
