The 100 Most Influential Bostonians

AIM’s CEO, John Regan named one of the 100 Most Influential Bostonians


Regan ascended to the top job two years ago, and AIM has continued to have almost unequaled clout, especially in the state House of Representatives and the Baker administration. Now the business lobbying group is also a leader of woke corporate practices: Last summer, Regan and AIM led a coalition of Massachusetts business groups in calling for significant change when it comes to racial equity in the workplace. And this spring, AIM recommended businesses alter their policies to do more for female employees who have suffered disproportionately during the COVID pandemic, including pay increases, extended leave, and accommodating schedules — proof that progressive politics makes good business sense in the state.
