Mike Angelini will be the first to tell you he doesn’t flex his power in the Central Massachusetts economy the way he did in decades past.

He stepped down as Bowditch chairman two years ago, and he no longer serves on the board of Massport or the Hanover Insurance Group in Worcester.

When asked to list his accomplishments from the past year, he simply said, “None.”

Yet, Angelini can get momentum going behind most any project or alter the thinking behind any effort, as his decades of connections, sage wisdom, and community involvement make him a nearly universally respected figure in the Central Massachusetts business community.

Angelini attributes his accomplishments to the commitment and teamwork of people in the community.

It helps too, he’s been at it for 55 years since he was hired fresh out of law school by Bowditch & Dewey founders in 1968.

“Knowing lots of extraordinary people certainly helps,” Angelini said.

Despite having seemingly scaled back his professional involvement, Angelini still holds important positions in the community. He is chairman of the Worcester Redevelopment Authority, which helps the City of Worcester facilitate economic development by buying properties like the downtown Denholm Building for $3 million so a new developer can be brought it, and overseeing projects like the $160-million construction of Polar Park baseball stadium.

Angelini remains a board member of the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, where he mentors other up-and-coming board members and helps oversee the $198-million endowment, which GWCF doles out to various community efforts, including helping small nonprofits with operating funding and growing their missions.
