Brightway Insurance Chief of Staff, Leslie Wright, started in the insurance industry 32 years ago and has been instrumental in growing Brightway into one of the largest Personal Lines agencies in the U.S.
Wright works closely with President and CEO, Michael Miller, in outlining and executing key strategies as well as leading the day-to-day operations of the company. Additionally, she oversees Brightway's Marketing and Communications functions.
Key takeaways from Wright ‘s discussion were:
- Leaders are not anointed; leadership is not inherent in any one position
- Leaders see it, own it, solve it and do it—regardless of role or level in an organization
- Cultures that capture the hearts and minds of their people, make goals clear and encourage accountability naturally build leaders at all levels
Franchise Business Review recognized Wright among its Women in Franchising, leaders influencing the franchise business model.
