About the Founder

Darin C. Wright is the CEO & President of The Wright Group Private Capital Firm (TWG). He has grown TWG from 3 brands to a portfolio of more than 65 brands in various industry sectors. Mr. Wright is what is referred to in the business world as a parallel entrepreneur - one who launches a series of enterprises simultaneously. He has performed this style of entrepreneurship for most of his career.

After completing a project for a Fortune 500 consumer products company in 4Q-2015, he decided to focus on reinventing his 3 businesses: StrategicIsite (strategic consulting), Heuristic Learning (education & training), and eblackwidow (technology consulting & software development). He recognized an opportunity to deliver more value to clients, which would lead him to take parallel entrepreneurship to a new level.

Leveraging his experience in strategic management, education and training, and technology, he began to develop a portfolio of meaningful brands positioned to fill individual and organizatonal needs. He then aligned and integrated these brands to provide holistic, robust solutions along a defined value chain to increase the value provided to stakeholders.

Mr. Wright has unequivocally stated that this has been one of his most challenging projects.

Entrepreneur

Prior to TWG, he has owned a variety of businesses including retail stores. He has organically financed every venture he has undertaken.
