Keeping a unique company like MEDITECH on solid financial footing is a challenge Barbara Manzolillo enjoys meeting and exceeding every year. As chief financial officer, she guides the company’s financial direction while overseeing its accounting, forecasting, and financial analysis and reporting. In 2016, Ms. Manzolillo joined MEDITECH’s Board of Directors.
Ms. Manzolillo began her career at MEDITECH in 1975, when she was hired to work in Accounts Receivable. During these early years, she attended evening classes at Suffolk University (Boston, MA), eventually earning her MBA. Throughout her tenure, she has also served as assistant comptroller and comptroller, as well as treasurer, an office she still holds. In 1996 MEDITECH’s Board of Directors promoted Ms. Manzolillo to CFO.
In 1991, at Chairman and Founder A. Neil Pappalardo’s request, Ms. Manzolillo established MEDITECH’s art acquisitions program. Since then, she has been responsible for procurement as well as the program’s mission of inspiring innovation through art. She is also in charge of our art liaison program, which engages staff in art through hands-on, creative activities.
Ms. Manzolillo supports many charitable and cultural organizations, including the Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston, of which she is a trustee.
