Person of the Year: Cliff Rucker

Worcester Magazine’s annual Person of the Year issue highlights those in the community that have made the largest impact on the city and you’d have a hard time naming someone that has done more to change the Worcester landscape in the past 12 months than Cliff Rucker.

Rucker came onto the Worcester scene back in February 2016, a relative unknown in the city. Billed as a “North Shore businessman” in quote blocks and headlines throughout the ensuing months, the president of NFS Leasing out of Beverly would have plenty more in store for the city as the months ticked by. While the hockey team and his investments and development in the city have dramatically changed Worcester’s landscape, it is his work ethic and “do it right” attitude that makes him our 2017 Worcester Magazine Person of the Year.
