St. Joseph Hospital Welcomes 2 Board Members



St. Joseph Hospital Announces the Appointment of 2 Board Members

Nashua, NH – May 19th, 2021 - St. Joseph Hospital announced today the appointment of Matthew Fossum and Sean Howell to their Board of Directors. These individuals will provide a governance perspective from non-healthcare industries to St. Joseph Hospital. 

“We are thrilled to welcome our new board directors,” said John A. Jurczyk, President of St. Joseph Hospital. “Both of them provide our board with a unique background and perspective and we look forward to their expertise and guidance this year.”

Matthew Fossum currently serves as Senior Regulatory Counsel for Eversource Energy in Manchester where he is responsible for legal matters – primarily regulatory and compliance matters in New Hampshire and before regional and federal bodies – for New Hampshire’s (and the region’s) largest public utility company.  Prior to his role at Eversource, he worked as a staff attorney for the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission and as a law clerk in both the New Hampshire Supreme and Superior Courts.  Mr. Fossum is also a graduate of both Leadership Greater Concord and Leadership New Hampshire, and currently serves as the President of the Neighbor Helping Neighbor Fund helping utility customers who experience some sort of emergency or financial hardship.

Sean Howell currently serves as Head of Relationship Management for Fidelity Fund & Investment Operations (FFIO), a division of Fidelity Investments. In this role, which he assumed in 2018, Sean is responsible for relationship management between FFIO and its Fidelity business partners as well as the custodian banks that are servicing assets across Fidelity products. He provides client experience program oversight across all major FFIO product and service lines and thought leadership for FFIO capabilities. Sean first joined Fidelity in 1999, and prior to his current position held several increasingly senior roles within Fidelity’s Asset Management (AM) Investment Operations (IO) organization. Most recently, he served as Head of IO Relationship Management. In this role, he built out a new relationship management function for Investment Operations to service all AM business units as well as the Fidelity channels.

“Our Board of Directors is comprised of a dedicated team of community leaders committed to providing the best possible experience for our patients” said St. Joseph Hospital Board Chairperson, Louise Trottier. “We are confident that the addition of these directors will bring the skills, experiences and perspectives necessary to continue executing on the strategy and mission of St. Joseph Hospital.”
