Join us for lunch with Franklin Street's Founder and Board Chair Andrew Wright to learn more about his business leadership, market outlook, and economic forecast.
A highly-driven entrepreneur, Andrew Wright, used his broad perspective to launch Franklin Street, a full-service commercial real estate firm that boasts hundreds of employees and nearly $7 billion in current transaction value, in 2006.

After leading the firm as CEO for over 15 years, Mr. Wright today serves as Chairman of Franklin Street's Board of Directors, helping to develop and define strategic goals and major initiatives for the firm. He has been honored with multiple awards for leadership in business, including being voted Real Estate Forum's Best Boss of the Year, adorning the cover of their national publication.
