Jennifer Wright, owner of Becker Wright Consultants, was recently featured in a local business publication called “Faces and Places Magazine.” Jennifer has been the driving force behind the success of the executive recruiting firm since founding it in 2003.

Successful Women in Business

According to the State of Women-Owned Business Report, commissioned by American Express OPEN, Women entrepreneurs now own 30% of all enterprises in the United States. Geographically, Texas ranks 2nd in the nation for fastest growth in the number of women-owned firms.

The report outlines the economic impact of female business owners saying, “As of 2015, it is estimated that there are just over 9.4 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating nearly $1.5 trillion in revenues and employing over 7.9 million people.”

Keys to Success

Jennifer’s success as a recruiting professional is due to her personal approach to working with clients and candidates. Says Jennifer, “I truly believe that I become an extension of every client with whom I work. Each client has his own personality, philosophies, and ideas about what makes a great candidate. I make it my personal mission to fill each position.”

Becker Wright Consultants is enjoying strategic growth to meet the increasing demands of new and existing clients, while maintaining the personal service clients have come to expect of the firm.

While based in Austin, TX, Jennifer’s relationships extend nationwide and include Fortune 500 corporations.
