Michelle A. Shell

On February 5, 2015, the Center for Collaborative Leadership will present Michelle A. Shell, Chairman of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority Board with the Third Annual Building a Better Boston Award. 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. Event runs from 7:30 am to 9:30 am at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

Michelle Shell has an impressive track record as a business strategist at elite firms such as LPL, Fidelity, and State Street Global. She has also been a strong leader in helping shape the region. As Chair of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority since 2010, her efforts have visibly reinvigorated the Seaport District. As a member of the Board of Overseers for WGBH, she has helped to instill quality educational programming to the region. And, in her role on the board of the philanthropic trust of Boston Medical Center, her work ensures the BMC is able to continue in its mission of “providing exceptional care without exception to the people of Greater Boston.” For these reasons and many more, the center is honored to award Ms. Shell the Building a Better Boston Award.
