"I am honored to be recognized by the Mass Technology Leadership Council as their CEO of the Year," said Bush, according to a story on Globe Newswire. "I owe this honor, though, to the near 3,000 teachers and learners who work for athenahealth, most of them here in Massachusetts, who are on a mission where the team and the cause are more important than personal accomplishments. We are working to make health care work as it should, an important and inspiring job."
Winners of the Mass Tech Leadership Council's awards were honored at the group's 16th annual Awards Gala held Sept. 12 at the Westin Waterfront in Boston.
"We are honored to present Jonathan Bush with the 2013 CEO of the Year award," said Tom Hopcroft, President and CEO of MassTLC said according to the Globe Newswire report. "Bush's leadership is an outstanding example of what it takes to keep the Commonwealth's tech sector growing and thriving. It's our pleasure to recognize and encourage such excellence. Congratulations to Jonathan and the strong team at athenahealth behind his success."
