Jul. 1—Long-time Catholic Medical Center executive Alex Walker assumed the role of CMC president and chief executive officer Thursday following Dr. Joseph Pepe's retirement. Walker was most recently executive vice president and chief operating officer of CMC.

"CMC and its dedicated employees have built a legacy of excellence which only grew under Dr. Pepe's leadership," Walker said in a statement. "I am humbled by the confidence CMC's Board of Trustees has placed in me to guide this organization into its next era,"

CMC employees, donors, and members of the community gathered in a retirement celebration last week and paid tribute to Pepe, who joined CMC as a primary care physician in 1990. He was named CEO in 2012.

In his honor, CMC has established the Dr. Joseph Pepe Fund for Staff Support and Professional Development. As of his retirement, more than $90,000 had already been donated to the fund, which will help CMC employees in professional growth endeavors.

Walker joined CMC as general counsel in 2012. He was previously president of Devine Millimet, a Manchester law firm and served in the U.S. Marine Corps. The Walker family resides in Manchester.

CMC previously announced that Walker would succeed Pepe as president and CEO.
