Jay Stephens, Raytheon senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary, has won the first annual John G.L. Cabot Award for his advocacy of free enterprise principles.
Stephens served as chair of New England Legal Foundation’s board of directors between 2007 and 2010, Raytheon said Friday.
“No one epitomizes better than Jay Stephens the qualities that the John G.L. Cabot Award seeks to honor: wise leadership, sound judgment and profound legal knowledge,” said Martin Newhouse, president of NELF.
The Cabot Award is named after John G. L. Cabot, a member of NELF’s board of directors from 1978 to 1994.
