Sudbury's Houpt Named Executive Director of New England Employee Benefits Council

Houpt was also president from 2004-06.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following was submitted by Henry Stimpson.)

The New England Employee Benefits Council (NEEBC) has named Patricia Houpt of Sudbury executive director, succeeding long-time executive director Jack Curley, who is retiring. NEEBC is a Waltham, Mass.-based nonprofit that advances knowledge and education in employee benefits.

Houpt has owned and operated PMH Associates, an employee benefits consulting and brokerage firm in Sudbury, Mass., since 1998.  Earlier in her career she held senior-level positions in several benefits consulting firms.

“Patty's unique blend of benefits experience, knowledge of nonprofit organizations and long-time support of NEEBC's mission make her ideally suited to the position,” said NEEBC president Nan Maley of Nan Maley Associates.

Houpt was NEEBC’s president from 2004 to 2006 and served on its board of directors and executive committee for nine years. She is the founder and president of Sudbury Military Support Network, a grassroots organization that supports soldiers and their families before, during and after deployment. She was also a founding member of the Development Committee for Project Hope in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood.

NEEBC became New England’s premier employee benefits association during Curley’s 14-year tenure. It offers high-quality in-depth programs every month, an annual best practices conference, an annual benefits fair, college scholarships and an online job board.  

“I couldn't be more pleased that my long-time colleague and friend, Patty Houpt, has been selected as the next executive director,” Curley said. “I'm confident that under her guidance the best for NEEBC is yet to come.”

Houpt is a graduate of Denison University. She is a long-time resident of Sudbury, where she is very active in the community and is a founding member of the Sudbury Military Support Network.
