BOSTON, June 15, 2015 – 2012 Olympic gold-medalist Aly Raisman of Needham, Mass./Brestyan’s American Gymnastics, was one of the new Board members elected by the Board of Directors of the Boston 2024 Partnership.

“Each of us on the Board of the Boston 2024 Partnership has a vision for advancing the city of Boston through the prism of hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Carol Fulp, president and CEO, The Partnership, Inc. and Chair, Boston 2024 Nominating and Governance Committee. “This opportunity of a lifetime requires the input and insights from representatives across various communities and industries. We are fortunate that these impressive individuals are banding together to share their expertise as we build a bid that provides long-term benefits for our region and strong legacies for the Olympic and Paralympic movement.”

Chaired by Steve Pagliuca, managing director at Bain Capital, co-owner and managing partner of the Boston Celtics, the Boston 2024 Board of Directors provides governance oversight on key policy issues leading up to and including the final bid for Boston’s pursuit of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Membership on these committees is expected to be finalized over the next several weeks.
