In a new list from the Worcester Business Journal, four College of the Holy Cross alumni are named among the top 25 “power players” in the Worcester business community in 2013. According to the publication’s editor Rick Saia, the list highlights professionals “who have the  leadership position, the money or the artful ability to persuade others…some have a combination of all three attributes, which can make their influence quite potent.”

J. Christopher Collins ’80 is the senior vice president and general counsel of the Unum Group in Worcester. Collins and the Unum Group have demonstrated substantial community involvement and engagement in the City of Worcester, in addition to his own personal efforts in the non-profit community. Most recently, Collins and his brother, Dr. Michael Collins ’77, co-chaired the 2010 United Way campaign.

Dr. Michael Collins ’77 is chancellor of UMass Medical School in Worcester, providing “critical direction and leadership” as the school expands. In addition, to their significant economic contributions to the City, the Worcester Business Journal highlights UMass Medical School and Collins as key players in fixing America’s health care system.

P. Kevin Condron ’67,  chairman and CEO of The Granite Group LLC and chair of the Board of Trustees at Holy Cross, may not be based in Worcester, but was monumental in the development of three major projects in downtown Worcester: the DCU Center’s convention facility, Union Station, and Worcester Medical Center. “I’ve always felt that whatever you do, you want to do it better than anyone else ever did it,” Condron told the Worcester Business Journal in 2012 about his involvement in the City. “And when an opportunity comes along, you want to do it and do it better than anybody else did it.”

Fred Eppinger ’81, president and CEO of the Hanover Insurance Group, has been at the helm of the company since 2003, and credits his entire Hanover team for the work the company has accomplished. Under his leadership, Hanover has invested in the City Square project, making the groundbreaking of that project a reality; purchased naming rights for Fitton Field at Holy Cross, home of the Worcester Bravehearts starting this summer; and invested in the arts through the restoration of Showcase Cinemas into the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts.
