Wright Engineers’ senior partners and their wives traveled to Dallas last month to attend the Zweig Hot Firm Conference and receive the award as the nation’s #1 Best Firm to Work For in the Structural Engineering category. While at the conference, Wright founder and CEO Brent Wright participated in an industry Q&A panel with three other CEOs of number-one ranked companies in their categories. This is the fourth time Wright has been honored with a Best Firms to Work For award, which recognizes the top U.S. and Canada based firms. “From day one, back in 1997, I was determined to make Wright Engineers a ‘Destination Employer’,” said Brent. “While we can and will continue to improve, it’s incredible to be recognized some 21 years later as the number 1 structural firm in the nation! What a great honor for the firm–and for our awesome team of professionals that make us who we are!” What Richard Branson famously said is true: “If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.”

Wright Engineers is on a mission to eradicate cancer. A lofty goal to be sure–but one we are committed to doing our part to achieve. Founder and CEO Brent Wright and Wright’s Salt Lake City business development director Amber Winn joined some of the Nation’s top leaders in science, business, academia and politics to discuss groundbreaking cancer research and talk about how we can encourage others like you to advance the work. We are doing that through 5 for the Fight.
