Before joining Boart, Mr. Wright was Director of Corporate Financial Planning and Analysis for a leading North American quick-serve restaurant company, Wendy’s International. Earlier in his career, Mr. Wright held increasingly responsible positions in the finance areas of Bank One Corporation (now JP Morgan Chase Company) and Allied Signal Incorporated (now Honeywell International Inc.).

Mr. Wright holds a BS in Corporate Finance from Ball State University and an MBA in Finance from Indiana University. He also holds the Certified Professional Controller (CPC) designation.
