DAVID HELLMAN
Vice President Operations
Pan-Mass Challenge

On any given day at PMC HQ, you can find David Hellman focused on dual computer screens, headset flashing and hands free for multiple tasks.  It might be a new event innovation like rider tracking by smart phones or delivering email templates to riders to use for their fundraising. As Senior Vice President of Operations, Hellman keeps the PMC on the forefront of technology and logistics in order to keep the PMC on mission: donate 100% of every rider-raised dollar to DFCI.  Like many involved with the PMC, Hellman has a long history with the organization. In the 60’s he and Billy Starr attended the same summer camp. In the 70s, a 200-mile trek on the Appalachian Trail cemented their friendship and set Billy Starr on a path to the founding the PMC. Hellman became a Colorado ski industry executive in the 80s and in the 90s, came back to Boston each August to ride the PMC.  He came home for good in 2000 to join the PMC professional staff. Over the past nineteen years Hellman’s work behind the scenes has revolutionized the way riders, sponsors, and volunteers experience the event.  Since 2000, 100% of registration has been completed online and fundraising has gone from zero to 85% on the web. In 2002, 2 years before Facebook was created, PMC developed the first personal fundraising pages for riders to share their stories, photos and links. For Hellman innovation is more than technical – adding the Family Finish in Provincetown allowed the event to add 1,000 more riders who today raise over 8,000 each – $8 million more for the gift. These innovations led the Boston Business Journal to recognize Hellman as CIO (Chief Information Officer) of the Year in 2013.
