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 recognition.”
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.
