Derrick Hassell, Brighton Marine’s Longest Serving Employee

At Brighton Marine, we have so many amazing people that work hard every day behind the scenes to improve the lives of veterans in the Greater Boston area and make our organization run smoothly. To showcase our talented team, we launched this Employee Spotlight Series as a recurring series to feature these accomplished people.

Derrick Hassell, our do-it all, Maintenance Mechanic, has been with us at Brighton Marine for 42 years. He has seen a lot of changes here on campus! He started working here as a summer job when he was kid and has been here ever since! Derrick was born in North Carolina and raised in Brighton, MA and has learned the value of giving back over the years working here.

Watch this video to learn more about Derrick’s role here at Brighton Marine.
