Wright-Lacy is President of the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), the nation’s premier corporate membership organization focused exclusively on advancing opportunities for Asian, African-American, Hispanic and Native American owned businesses.
As the eldest of three children, Wright-Lacy learned at an early age that only the strong survive. Wright-Lacy was raised by a single mother, whose dedication and commitment still serves as an inspiration.
“As the eldest child my mother expected me to help take care of my siblings and keep them in line”, said Wright-Lacy. “Often when they were sick I was the one who took care of them in the middle of the night, changing the sheets if they were ill. I
did this willingly because I saw how hard my mother worked to provide for us.”
