Blue is Vice President and Assistant General Counsel of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company. He manages the corporate law and risk management insurance groups and is a member of the Law Department’s senior leadership team.

Prior to joining MassMutual in August 2011, Dominic spent over six years as a corporate attorney with the international law firm of Edwards Wildman Palmer.  Previously, he was a corporate attorney at Testa Hurwitz & Thibeault, LLP, a former Boston law firm.

Dominic received his B.A. in 1998 from the College of the Holy Cross, where he was a member of the varsity football team and a co-captain.  He earned his J.D. from Boston College Law School and his M.B.A. from the Carroll School of Management (Boston College) in 2002.

Dominic serves on the board of directors of the Greater Springfield YMCA and was selected as a Massachusetts Rising Star 2011 by Super Lawyers and as a member of the 2009 class of Greater Boston Chamber’s Future Leaders.  Blue is a former President of the Massachusetts Black Lawyers Association.

Blue replaces Ferdinand Alvaro, whose term on the Board ended in September.

“On behalf of the Governor and the members, I welcome Dominic to the Board and look forward to his contribution, including his knowledge of Greater Springfield and the Pioneer Valley,” said MassDOT Secretary and MassDOT Board of Directors member Richard A. Davey. “I also wish to thank Ferdinand Alvaro for his years of service to MassDOT and the MBTA.”

The MassDOT Board of Directors is a seven-member board appointed by the Governor with expertise in transportation, finance and engineering.  The Board serves as the governing body of both MassDOT and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA). MassDOT is administered by the Secretary of Transportation, who serves as Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Board of Directors.
