Hopkinton resident Marisa Gregg was named vice president for communications and marketing at the College of the Holy Cross, the school announced earlier this month. Gregg, who joined Holy Cross as director of marketing and communications in 2014, has served as interim vice president since September.
“Marisa has managed campus communications during one of the most uncertain times in our institutional history, ensuring that clear, timely and accurate information is delivered to our campus community, parents, alumni and the greater public. Further, she continues to work to revitalize the college’s marketing plan in a moment when in-person engagement for prospective students and their families, trustees and donors is more challenging than it has ever been,” Holy Cross president Rev. Philip Boroughs said. “She has also served as a tireless member of the college’s executive team, providing a valuable voice throughout a year filled with difficult decisions. I am pleased she will permanently take on this critical leadership role.”
Prior to joining Holy Cross, Gregg worked in brand development at the Boston Beer Company, holding positions of increasing responsibility over her 10 years with the company. Ultimately, as director of the Samuel Adams brand, she was responsible for all product development, branding and promotional activity for a portfolio of over 65 Samuel Adams beers. Before joining the Boston Beer Company, Gregg worked in brand management at The Clorox Company in Oakland, California, on the GLAD and BRITA brands. Gregg holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame and an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.
“I am honored and excited to continue in this leadership role,” Gregg said. “I look forward to working together with my talented team and our partners across the campus to bring to life Holy Cross’ mission, values and approach to Jesuit, Catholic liberal arts education through the extraordinary stories of our faculty, staff, students and alumni.”

MRMC earns honors
Milford Regional Medical Center was recognized as a high performing hospital in two adult procedures by U.S. News & World Report.
Milford Regional earned high performing ratings for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart failure, in recognition of care that was significantly better than the national average, as measured by factors such as patient outcomes. High performing is the highest rating U.S. News awards for those types of care.
“Milford Regional is proud to be among the nation’s select hospitals recognized for high performance,” said Edward J. Kelly, president & CEO of Milford Regional Medical Center. “This is a tribute to everyone at Milford Regional who continually strive to not only meet, but exceed the quality goals set before them. I want to congratulate them for this achievement knowing that our team at Milford Regional is already looking forward to further enhancements on the programs and services we now have in place.”
For the 2020-21 ratings, U.S. News evaluated more than 4,500 medical centers nationwide in 10 procedures and conditions. Fewer than a third of all hospitals received any high-performing rating, and only 37 earned this rating in all 10 procedures and conditions. The state and metro area rankings recognize hospitals that received high performing ratings across multiple areas of care.
MRMC also received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get with the Guidelines Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award, which recognizes the hospital’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.
