BOSTON, DECEMBER 12, 2018– Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay, one of the nation’s leading one-to-one youth mentoring programs and the largest Big Brothers Big Sisters affiliate in New England, announced the appointment of Julia McCarthy, executive vice president and head of the Conversion Program Office for State Street Global Services, to its Board of Directors. McCarthy brings an extensive background in financial and client services and joins the Board’s 19 other members as they work to expand the organization’s service across Eastern Massachusetts to more than double the youth served within the next five years.
In her current role at State Street Global Services, McCarthy’s focus is on creating a solid foundation for clients as they bring new business to State Street. McCarthy previously held senior executive positions at Fidelity Investments, Affiliated Computer Services (now Conduent) and BNY Mellon Financial Corporation. She also previously served on the Board of Directors for the Secure Retirement Institute. In joining the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay Board, McCarthy will contribute to helping local children find a mentor who can ignite, defend and empower their potential.
“The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay is one that I feel particularly passionate about as I would not be who I am today if it weren’t for the help of my mentors,” said McCarthy. “I had a mentor who gave me leadership examples early in my career and empowered me on so many levels. It’s an honor to be joining an organization that is helping provide every child in Eastern Massachusetts with the caring, adult role model they deserve, and I look forward to helping the nonprofit achieve its growth goals in the years to come.”
“With her expertise and personal mentoring experiences, Julia will be a critical asset to our Board as we seek to increase the number of adult mentors in our organization and provide them with the support necessary to foster meaningful relationships with their Littles,” said Wendy Foster, President and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay. “Next year will be our 70th anniversary as an agency, and despite serving more than 3,200 children annually, there are still more than 1,500 children on our waiting list. With Julia’s help, we are determined to better serve more youth across Eastern Massachusetts.”
