Holbrook, Chairman and CEO, Eastern Bank. “We are equally honored to recognize nearly 200 organizations that are working hard to prevent violence through a variety of programs that address anti-bullying, domestic violence, hate crimes, suicide prevention and more.” “I’m very proud and humbled to receive this year’s Wainwright Social Justice Award,” said Rosenthal. “If every business prioritized and celebrated social justice like Eastern Bank, we would all be living in a far more fair and just world.” Rosenthal, President of Meredith Management, is a successful real estate developer and manager who has been nationally recognized for his efforts in balancing corporate and individual responsibility. The Social Justice Award recognizes nonprofits or individuals who have achieved outstanding success in addressing social justice issues.
