Shawn WolfFREDERICK MARYLAND – Wright Manufacturing, an innovative leader in commercial lawn maintenance technology, announced today that it has appointed Shawn Wolf as President. Bill Wright, the company’s founder, had held the position since establishing the company in 1981.

“I have had the pleasure of working closely with Shawn during his tenure as Chief Operating Officer at Wright for the past eight years,” said Bill Wright, “He has successfully and effectively taken on all of the management and most of the “presidential” responsibilities, which makes this appointment more about recognition than an actual change in his duties. His title of President reflects the reality of the role Shawn has had in recent years.”

Mr. Wright continued, “Shawn has done an outstanding job of building and mentoring our incredible team. I have the utmost confidence in Shawn’s ability to provide the leadership needed for the long-term success of Wright Manufacturing. As I continue on as of Chairman of the Board, the focus of my activities will be defining the company’s vision, planning and consulting on new products with our skilled engineering team.”

Mr. Wolf came to Wright with over ten years of executive experience. He has a BS in Business Administration from Bryan College, an MS in Management from Eastern University and is currently enrolled in a Doctoral program in Strategic Leadership at Regent University.

Mr. Wolf says, “Working with Bill has been a pleasure and I look forward to many more years of partnership. Bill and I work very well together – we value each others strengths and complement each other.” Mr. Wolf’s responsibilities will include driving the day-to-day operations and building on the strength of relationships with the company’s channels – dealers, distributors, and professional landscapers. “This will allow Bill to focus more of his time on new product development and vision for the company.”
