Mike Angelini and AiVi Nguyen Selected for the Worcester Business Journal Power 50
Mike Angelini, Bowditch chairman and AiVi Nguyen, partner in the firm’s Litigation practice, have both been selected for the Worcester Business Journal’s (WBJ) Power 50 Class of 2019.
The Power 50 is compiled by the WBJ and is comprised of the 50 most influential people in the Central Massachusetts economy, defined as “anyone who can use their influence to make change in Central Massachusetts.” The list includes people from all walks of life and professions.
Mike Angelini was included under Money and Influence. The article says this about him and his involvement in the local economy:
Angelini’s defining quality may be he doesn’t like to sit on the sidelines. And, over the course of a 50-year career, he hasn’t, being a voice of reason and change in his many roles: As a board member, he helped pick the last three CEOs of Hanover Insurance Group; on the Massport board, he advocated for the state to purchase Worcester Regional Airport from the city, resulting in $100 million in investments.
AiVi Nguyen was included under Education and Advocacy. The WBJ touted her community-building activities, saying:
When she was promoted to a partner at age 31 in 2016, Nguyen became the youngest partner in Bowditch’s 105-year history. She used that visibility to elevate her community efforts, which have included – but are not limited to – pushing for more inclusion. As vice chair of Worcester’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, she helped spearhead the proposal this year to switch to affirmative action in city hiring. Nguyen also serves as chairwoman of the United Way of Central Mass. and on the Kennedy Community Health Center board.
