With more than 20 years in the design industry, Wright brings an understanding of the nuances and challenges of leading a design practice. He will apply this knowledge in his new role to continue the momentum achieved to date toward uniting the diverse business centers, sector expertise, and more than 400 multidisciplinary practitioners across the region.

He brings expertise in client-focused design solutions, operational management, and corporate planning and budgeting.
