Patriots owner Robert Kraft was among a whole posse of powerbrokers who gathered this week for the Director of the Year Awards at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel. The annual event hosted by the National Association of Corporate Directors honored Summit Partners cofounder Stephen Woodsum, Simmons College dean Cathy Minehan, and former Partners HealthCare CEO Samuel Thier. The crowd included attorney Bob Popeo, Hill Holliday founder Jack Connors, Hill Holliday president Karen Kaplan, Suffolk Construction’s John Fish, and Bank of America’s Anne Finucane. Kraft, by the way, will be delivering the commencement address at Suffolk University May 19. The school also announced Friday that Reebok founder Paul Fireman will speak to Sawyer Business School grads, and MSNBC host Chris Matthews will share words of wisdom with Suffolk Law grads.
