If you’ve seen the 2014 BBA Public Service Report, you’re familiar with BBA Summer Jobs Intern Olivier Tingue and Employer Matt McTygue (Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP). We’re not the only ones who think this dynamic duo is pretty fantastic. The Boston Private Industry Council recently named Olivier and Matt 2014 PIC Achievers at their recent Annual Meeting.
Here is what PIC had to say about Matt and Olivier:
“Matt specializes in debt finance and private equity transactions. Olivier emigrated from Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. In March of this year, Olivier was asked to speak alongside Mayor Walsh at an employer appreciation reception. After hearing Olivier, the president of the Boston Bar Association (BBA) asked him if he would like to work in a law firm. Olivier jumped at the opportunity and secured a summer internship at the international law firm of Edwards Wildman. There he met Matt, who also co-chairs the BBA summer jobs program. Under Matt’s watchful eye, Olivier working in various departments within the firm, assisted in a mock trial and interacted with attorneys in special seminars, on court house tours, and during weekly lunches. This fall, Olivier started at Bridgewater State University. He currently plans on pursuing a career in international law. Matt and Olivier represent what can happen when two worlds meet within the context of a professional workplace.”
