We’re not quite sure what brought Carl Wright to the deep south all the way from Omaha, Nebraska, but we’re sure glad here’s here. We like to think of him as our very own Renaissance Man – witty, intelligent, strong and, most important, he gets things done with a smile. Perhaps it was starting his career at a movie theater, working at East Lake Golf Club (getting to know Tom Cousins, Tiger Woods and some of the golf greats), working as a publicist or organizing youth football camps hosted by NFL/CFL players, that honed his skills. Or maybe it’s his personable and fun energy driven by the desire to succeed. What we do know is that when it needs to happen and it needs to happen right (see what we did there? Carl “Wright”), Carl’s our man.
Carl wears many hats for the CEU team – in the warehouse, onsite directing events or whatever the day calls for. Our clients love his personality and his winning smile. His favorite part of events is the teamwork during event setup. It’s no wonder team buildings are his specialty and most-liked events. His least favorite events? The ones that get cancelled or postponed.
When not encouraging, motivating or leading the charge, Carl enjoys eating out (A LOT!) and attending sporting events. We asked Carl what the title of his biography would be if it were ever to be written. With his dose of usual wit, he quickly replied “What ALL is LEFT?” Because he’s a lefty. Get it?
