Each year the Boston Business Journal presents the F. Gorham Brigham Jr. Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual who has created a meaningful legacy in the local finance profession. This year, Peter Markell, Executive Vice President of Administration & Finance, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of Partners HealthCare was the recipient of this prestigious award.

During his acceptance remarks during the July 19th event, he reflected on his time at Partners HealthCare.

"Every day we are making a difference in people’s lives through outstanding clinical care, scientific breakthroughs and teaching the clinicians of the future. That coupled with the immense talent and commitment of those who work with me has made it very rewarding to have spent the past 18 years at Partners. It is about the people. I have been fortunate to have always worked with and been surrounded by truly talented and motivated people who want to do the right thing."
