Commenting on the appointment, Joseph L. Winn, Chair of the Board of Trustees, said, "The Trustees of Babson entered this presidential search with the confidence that comes from being in a position of strength and with a determination to find a leader who could build on the momentum of the recent past and with a clear vision of what we could be in our Centennial year of 2019 and beyond. At Babson, our mission is to shape entrepreneurial leaders who create economic and social value everywhere and we believe that Entrepreneurship of All Kinds is a powerful force for positive change in the world. We aimed high and found a leader in Dr. Healey who has lived Babson's entrepreneurial based mission and who has a global network of relationships which can only add to Babson's reach and influence. From founding non-profit organizations that help transform societies and creating new approaches to solving social issues, to teaching students to lead real institutional change and launching a TV show to put a spotlight on innovation, Dr. Healey's entrepreneurial leadership has made an impact in the U.S. and across the globe."

"Her achievements in academia, government, and humanitarian efforts across the globe speak to the impact she can make in any environment and to the extensive relationships and connections she has cultivated," continued Winn. "Her leadership expertise and powerful global network make her uniquely qualified to lead Babson at this pivotal time in the College's history."
