December 23, 2014 - We are delighted to report that the MBI Board has voted to appoint Eric Nakajima as the next Director of the Massachusetts Broadband Institute at MassTech.
As the Commonwealth’s Assistant Secretary for Innovation Policy, Eric has been directly involved with shaping the MBI’s strategy for the past several years. He has been a partner to the MBI and our stakeholders, and has had many diverse experiences working to develop and execute community-based economic growth initiatives, including development of the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center in Holyoke. Eric will bring a deep understanding of the strategic challenges ahead and the capacity to successfully lead the MBI team as our mission turns towards network operation and last mile strategy in 2015 and beyond.
An Amherst native, Eric is a graduate of UMass-Amherst and has a Masters in Planning from the University of California-Berkley.
We look forward to Eric’s arrival at MassTech. Interim Director Phil Holahan will officially transition the division’s leadership to Eric on January 20, 2015.
