Christopher Hunt, director of information technology at
Boston-based Tarlow Breed Hart & Rodgers, P.C. (TBHR), received an
honorable mention in the IT category of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly’s
‘Unsung Heroes’ for 2008. Chris was one of the finalists in the IT
category and was honored at an awards reception held at the Boston
Convention Center on October 23.
Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly awards the Unsung Hero
honor to someone who has demonstrated outstanding qualities and shown an
extra effort in helping his or her company, or someone who has an
amazing ability to encourage others. The Unsung Hero Award also
recognizes those who perform internal corporate citizenship and
cultivate pride within their companies, and whose exceptional efforts
should not go unnoticed or unrewarded. According to TBHR, Hunt fits
these criteria to a “T”.
“Chris is an extremely important part of our operation,”
said Jeffrey P. Hart, a partner at TBHR. “He keeps the computer
systems and other IT running smoothly for a 50+ person office, which is a
feat unto itself. When you consider the gravity of information we deal
with as attorneys, and also factor in the crazy hours we keep, his
efforts are even more impressive. Chris is truly deserving of this
Hunt began with the firm in 1995 through the
co-operative education program at Northeastern University. A criminal
justice major, he oversaw office services as part of his co-op job, but
also demonstrated an aptitude for diagnosing and fixing computers. TBHR
quickly recognized these talents – so much so, they hired him to head up
their IT efforts upon his graduation. His role has evolved to
encompass not only the firm’s IT needs, but includes litigation support,
marketing support and managing the firm’s facilities and records.
“During his time with the firm, Chris successfully
implemented two major upgrades of our servers and networking equipment.
He also supervised the 2004 relocation of our office from the Financial
District to our current location at 101 Huntington Avenue in the Back
Bay, working tirelessly to ensure a seamless transition during this
significant undertaking,” said Hart. “Chris is highly thought of by
everyone at the firm. As our IT Director, he is an integral part of our
team. We are pleased that he has remained with us through the years and
that we have had the opportunity to grow together.”
Hunt holds a bachelor’s of science in criminal justice
from Northeastern University and is a member of the International Legal
Technology Association (ILTA), the leading organization for IT
professionals in the legal industry. Hunt currently resides in Lowell
with his wife, Jodi, and his stepson, Brendon.
