RCBC students and community members are invited to the free speaker event featuring Wright, who with more than two decades of experience in the technology and media industry, has established himself as someone who can conceptualize and develop advanced technology solutions for leading global organizations. Wright’s unique understanding of the Internet space and ability to marry those technical advances with consumer demand has placed him as one of the premier technology experts in Internet and media.

“The goal with the Networking at Night Business Leader Speaker Series at the Willingboro Campus is to encourage students and community members to further their education and careers by introducing them to inspiring and successful professionals, entrepreneurs, and CEOs,” said RCBC Acting President Michael Cioce.

Wright has worked with clients such as Soledad O’Brien’s Starfish Media Group and Google and served as Chief Technology Officer for companies like Interactive One (Radio One’s online division) and Black Entertainment Television. Along with Russell Simmons, he co-founded GlobalGrind.com, later acquired by Radio One. On several occasions, Wright has gone to the White House to take part in discussions on how policy changes can help with technology adoption. Wright was selected by the Innovation Generation as one of the nation’s top 100 GenerationNEXT and Information Technology leaders and named on the “Next Steve Jobs list: The 10 people to watch in Technology” by Black Enterprise Magazine​.
