Michael Angelini has dedicated his considerable leadership skills to advancing many of the largest institutions in the Worcester area. He spends a portion of each day working in the best interest of the community. After stepping down in 2022 as chair of Worcester’s largest law firm, Bowditch, he remained with the firm as senior counsel.

In 2022, he was named the chairman of the Worcester Redevelopment Authority, which oversees urban renewal planning, land acquisition, business relocation, demolition of obsolete structures, site testing/preparation, and public improvements. Currently the board is choosing which proposal to select for the redevelopment of the six-story former Denholm Building on Main Street, a property the City of Worcester purchased in 2022. WRA is revitalizing Union Station, offering retail spaces for lease and preparing for the Worcester Regional Food Hub to take up residence in the station.

Angelini serves as vice chair for the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, the second largest grant-making foundation in Central Massachusetts, overseeing more than $200 million in assets. In March, Angelini and the board named experienced New York foundation executive Peter Dunn to be the foundation’s new CEO, effective Aug. 1. In the past, he was the chairman of The Hanover Insurance Group, Worcester’s largest public company.

How should professionals best use the power they wield? “The first step is to stop wielding power as an individual. We have an extraordinary community full of people working hard every day to make it a better place. Working with a team is what brings the best results and provides the most happiness.”

An open book: “I have no secrets. Life is fun.”
