The University of Massachusetts Boston's Center for Collaborative Leadership will present Richard E. Holbrook, chairman and CEO of Eastern Bank, with the Building a Better Boston Award at the second annual Building a Better Boston Award Ceremony on February 10 at InterContinental Boston.

The award was established to recognize an individual who is widely recognized for their contributions to advancing the region through their work as a convener and collaborator.

Holbrook has created an environment that enables Eastern Bank to win awards for its workplace environment, philanthropy, volunteerism, diversity and inclusion efforts, and social justice. Eastern Bank supports the sustainability of their nonprofit partners, having donated approximately $5.0 million to local nonprofit organizations in 2013.
