Business professionals from organizations of all types and sizes hold some amount of power, but how you shape the economy and community is when you are truly influential. You could sit atop the largest employer in the region with billions of dollars in revenue, like Dr. Eric Dickson at UMass Memorial Health, and play a significant role inside and outside of your industry. Or you could be a single person on a mission, like Ivette Olmeda as the Transformative Development Initiative fellow for Worcester’s Pleasant Street, and have an outsized influence in improving an economically depressed neighborhood.
The Power 50 is our annual list of the most influential professionals in the Central Massachusetts business community, where we in the WBJ newsroom tell the story of how power is shared and used in the region, as told through the people wielding it most effectively. In this comprehensive list, we strive to inform you where power truly lies in the region’s economy while still providing new names and stories year after year.
