Franklin Street is pleased to congratulate Andrew Wright on being named one of the commercial real estate industry’s Best Bosses by GlobeSt.com / Real Estate Forum! The 2021 award program honored leaders based on “their business acumen, how well they treat their employees and the type of culture and environment they set at their firms.”
Here are just some of the reason Andrew is one of the best bosess in the CRE business:
As the CEO of Franklin Street, Andrew Wright wears many hats. He is known as a driven and successful entrepreneur—he established the firm in 2006—and a storied industry veteran that has led the firm to close $5 billion in transactions, including $1 billion in 2019 alone. He also leads 250 employees, providing strong leadership in seven business divisions—investment sales, tenant and landlord representation, capital advisory, insurance, property management and project management. As the leader of the firm, he promotes a collaborative work environment and embraces new ideas. “Andrew truly considers Franklin Street and its employees as family and is dedicated to maintaining a good culture and the welfare of each and every team member. To Andrew, Franklin Street is personal, not just business, especially when it comes to its team members. He knows that without them, there wouldn’t be a Franklin Street,” says Kerrie Edington, executive assistant to the CEO. Other employees also commend Wright’s mentoring and willingness to foster internal growth. “Andrew is able to recognize talent and positive traits in people that they may not otherwise see in themselves, and that is a sign of a good leader in and of itself,” says Carrie Smith, managing director of retail at the firm.
