2019 Power 50: AiVi Nguyen

AiVi Nguyen Partner Bowditch & Dewey, Worcester Residence: Worcester Colleges: University of Pennsylvania, Boston College Law School
More Information

At Bowditch, Chairman Mike Angelini used his legal prowess and sense of community to become a towering figure in shaping the region's economy. Nguyen has proven herself to be his worthy successor. 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.

Where is Central Mass. headed? Millennials of all different colors, shapes, and sizes have stepped into leadership positions once occupied by a prototype – always the same color, shape, and size. And business is booming. Make no mistake, the Worcester renaissance is being carried on the backs of bold innovators who found their voice and used it to say something new.

Hungry: One of my partners at Bowditch called me Goldfish one time, because, as he put it, “a goldfish will eat however much food you put in front of it until it dies.” The nickname has stuck for years.
