Cathy E. Minehan, former board chair of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and former president of the Federal Reserve Bank, Valerie Mosley, CFA, founder of BrightUp and former partner at Wellington Management Company, and Chandra Ramanathan, PhD, MBA, executive-in-residence at Mass General Brigham (MGB) and former global head of Pharma R&D Open Innovation at Bayer, have joined McLean Hospital’s Board of Trustees.
“We are delighted to have Cathy, Valerie, and Chandra join as McLean trustees. All three are eminent leaders and innovators in their respective fields—finance, business, global health, translational research, and technology. Their guidance, support, and oversight as board members will be enormously valuable to advancing McLean’s mission,” said Scott L. Rauch, MD, McLean’s president and psychiatrist in chief.
McLean Board Chair Carol Vallone added, “Cathy’s and Valerie’s experience in business best practices and corporate social responsibility, and Chandra’s expertise in translating scientific ideas into treatments and access for patients, are tremendous assets to our board and will benefit the entire McLean community. We are thrilled to have them joining us.”
Cathy E. Minehan
Minehan is a director of Bright Horizons Family Solutions LLC, and a trustee of The MITRE Corporation and the Brookings Institution. She is an honorary trustee of MGH, after serving for more than 10 years as board chair, and is co-chair of the Mass General Brigham Institutional Conflict Committee.
She is also the outside board member of the American Board of Thoracic Surgeons, and serves on numerous other boards, as well as on the Massachusetts Business Roundtable and the Boston Women’s Workforce Council, which works to end the gender wage gap in Boston.
“I knew about the excellence of McLean from many sources, but it was not until I needed to find help for my husband who was quite ill with Alzheimer’s that I realized the magic of the place—its truly amazing care and caregivers,” said Minehan.
“They helped me as well as him, and I will never forget their excellence and kindness. What better reason to join the McLean board than to help ensure that level of care remains both the standard and available to all?”
Minehan was the first woman to serve as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. After retiring from her 39-year career with the Federal Reserve System, she served as dean of Simmons College’s School of Management. She is a graduate of the University of Rochester and a member of its Board of Trustees. She holds an MBA from New York University.
