Introducing our CEO: former Economic Developer, Research guru and father of three.
About Ben Wright
I started exploring cities and traveling at a really young age, inspired by my Grandfather, who had epic stories of the road from his time as a Broadway and traveling stage actor. I do now for work what I would do if I wasn’t working: get to know places inside and out. When I’m not working, I am lugging my wife and three daughters all over Denver and the western U.S.
With a background in social science, I try to see how collective market segments will view and interact with places. At our firm, I have helped us build innovative models for how home buyers make decisions to buy a home, how businesses decide to locate and how tourists decide where to travel. These models guide our creative and technical innovation.
Places He Loves
I have found just as much joy in an $8-a-night beachfront bungalow in Thailand as I have staying at the Hotel Negresco in Nice, France. Some of my favorite places are the biggest surprises: Omaha, Nebraska; Boulder, Colorado; Budapest, Hungary; Placencia, Belize; and the Riviera Maya in Mexico.
A Success Story
I get incredibly excited about telling people that our online campaigns generate three times the interaction of those by other agencies. In our very first large scale web project in 2002, we upped the usage on that website by an incredible 500 percent within three months of launch. That site was voted the best in the country by industry experts the next year and became the model for the industry. This experience has fueled me (and us) to keep getting better as new media opportunities arise--which they do almost every day.
