Martin Newhouse has retired from the positions of President and General Counsel of the New England Legal Foundation (“NELF”) after seventeen years of diligent and successful service, including fifteen as President, according to a statement issued by the NELF Board of Directors. In recognizing Newhouse’s contributions during his service, the Board noted that NELF has increased its reputation and impact as the leading voice of the business community advocating for free enterprise, property rights, limited and good government and balanced growth in New England.
In unanimous resolution approved by the NELF Board, the Board praised Newhouse’s intellect, integrity, professionalism, scholarship, passion, humility and leadership that set the tone and the standard of excellence for NELF for fifteen years. “The global pandemic created an existential threat to NELF, which survived and thrived under Martin’s careful fiscal management at a time when many non-profit organizations and businesses permanently closed their doors,” noted the Board.
Daniel B. Winslow, a former Massachusetts judge, legislator, and chief legal counsel to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, has been appointed as the next President of the New England Legal Foundation to build on Newhouse’s legacy. Winslow most recently served as the Chief Legal Officer of Las Vegas-based software support company Rimini Street (Nasdaq: RMNI).
The New England Legal Foundation was founded in 1977 with a mission of championing free enterprise, property rights, balanced economic growth and good government in the New England states. The Foundation has filed more than 500 amicus briefs in state and federal courts including the United States Supreme Court providing industry perspective in judicial decisions directly affecting New England businesses.
