 Jef Howell Recipient FCHN Service Award


Volunteered expertise in many capacities over 11 years




Jef Howell, a former 30-year resident of Livermore, was presented a service award at the Sept. 22 Franklin Community Health Network/Franklin Memorial Hospital (FCHN/FMH) board of directors meeting for his many years of service and dedication.


Howell served on the FCHN/FMH board of directors for nine years, from 2004-2013 and the organization’s finance committee for 11 years, from 2004-2015, serving as treasurer and chair for five years. During his tenure he also has served on multiple search committees for senior leadership, including for chief financial officer in 2011 and chief executive officer in 2008. Howell was also a member of the organization’s patient experience team, as well as the investment committee.


Beginning in December 2008, Howell was part of a special committee to evaluate facility options and capital investment returns to make a recommendation to the board of directors regarding the feasibility of building a medical arts center in the Livermore Falls area. The committee’s recommendation came to fruition in January 2012 when the Androscoggin Valley Medical Arts Center opened.


“FCHN grew exponentially from 2004 to 2015 with Jef demonstrating dynamic finance skills and immeasurable business expertise during this time,” said Rebecca Arsenault, FCHN president and chief executive officer. “I would like to extend my gratitude for his dedication and for volunteering for hundreds of hours to assure the success of our organization.”


Howell currently serves as purchasing manager for Verso Corporation’s Androscoggin Mill. He started at the Jay mill in 1981 shortly after his college graduation. Howell and his wife Cathi now reside in New Harbor. They are the parents of two adult daughters who reside in the Boston area.
