Bridge Over Troubled Waters is proud to honor David Long of Liberty Mutual Insurance for his efforts to serve Boston’s homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth.

David has been a champion for vulnerable youth and young adults. Partnering with Bridge in many ways over the past decade, David has helped strengthen Bridge’s comprehensive continuum of services ranging from street outreach and emergency overnight respite to housing programs.

Last year, David led Liberty Mutual Foundation in helping Bridge purchase and establish Liberty House.

Liberty House is the perfect next step for young adults who have graduated from other Bridge programs such as the Transitional Living Program in Brighton.

David Long is Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Liberty Mutual Insurance.

He began his career at Liberty Mutual in 1985 and he has held positions of increasing responsibility in the company’s International Operations, Commercial Markets, Underwriting and Financial, and Mergers and Acquisitions. He was elected President in 2010, became CEO in 2011, and Chairman in 2013.

David serves on the Board of Directors of multiple Liberty Mutual affiliate companies. He is also on the Board of Trustees for Hartwick College, Ford’s Theatre, and Massachusetts General Hospital. He serves on the board for Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, Jobs for MA, and Massachusetts and Competitive Partnership.

David is also Chairman for the annual MGH Aspire Fundraiser, which provides social services and development opportunities for children and young adults on the Autism Spectrum.
