annette-wrightTwenty Seven years ago, Annette Wright began her journey in the contracting and procurement career field.  This journey has realized a high level of professional competence in federal government, and both the public and private sectors while serving in various managerial positions.  During her tenure at NCR, in Peachtree City, GA., she managed the North America Purchasing Operations Branch aligned within the Worldwide Service Logistics Operation (WSL), and was directly responsible for procuring spare parts in excess of $120M.  In addition to this responsibility, she served as President, National Alliance of Black NCR employees.  Annette also found the energy to serve as the NCR regional Public Relations Chairperson, National Association of Purchasing Managers.

Most noteworthy, Annette received from previous Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell, his first ever presentation of the esteemed ‘Phoenix Award’ given to selected citizens recognized for extraordinary achievements. Her recognition was based on her facilitating the smooth transition and installation of 144 sorely needed operating computers to six (6) of Atlanta’s inner city schools.  The NCR Global Diversity Award is also among her honors during her tenure there as well. Read more
