2019 Power 50: Kate McEvoy

Kate McEvoy  Vice president, corporate relations UMass Memorial Health Care, Worcester Residence: Worcester College: Worcester State University
More Information


McEvoy has an innate ability to develop an idea and bring people together to execute that idea to excellence. For the last two years, she has been the volunteer head of fundraising for the UMass Memorial Winter Ball – the premier fundraising event in Central Massachusetts – and each of those two years have set records for the amount of money raised, including crossing the $2-million milestone this past year thanks to McEvoy’s dogged pursuit of pre-event corporate donations and sponsorships. McEvoy became the Central Massachusetts business community’s most coveted free agent in January, after insurer Harvard Pilgrim Health Care – where she was the head of business development for the region – closed its Worcester office.

She landed at UMass Memorial, which created the position of vice president of corporate relations just for her. In that role, she is tasked with ensuring the region’s largest employer – with 14,000 employees – remains financially strong even as the healthcare industry evolves.

Where is the Central Mass. community headed? Our wildest dreams are coming true.
