C. Edmund Wright is an accomplished national columnist and coveted natural speaker whose business experiences and ability to connect the dots resonates with readers and conference goers alike. Comfortable on his feet, Wright has given keynote speeches and single handedly moderated a Presidential debate. His experiences in business, polling and political communications gives him peerless insight into the issues of the day.
Wright has owned numerous businesses over the past couple of decades and was communications director for the 92 NC Bush Quayle Campaign — where he found out how frustrating it can be for a true conservative working for political moderates.
His work with the liberal elites of SC in a polling and focus group gives him inside experience dealing with the liberal mindset. He has been called an “exceptionally talented writer” and “brilliant and very funny” by Rush Limbaugh.
In addition to his writing for American Thinker (AmericanThinker.com), Wright is also working on a book with Presidential Candidate Herman Cain and spent nearly three years as one of the very rare ghost writers for a major (and I do mean major) radio talk show host. Mixing a ton of real world experience with an astounding ability to use analogy and stories to tie up seemingly loose ends, Wright mixes in the right amount of a sharp wit into his talks and his articles to magnify impact.
When not writing or speaking, Wright lives with his wife Jennings and his three children in Raleigh, NC(ok, one child is grown and another is in college) and tends to a number of business interests. He enjoys basketball, water skiing and weight lifting along with being a picky consumer of sushi. Serious about his Christian faith, he firmly belives that some of God’s best handy work is somewhere between the Florida Keys and the Virgin Islands.
