Anthony (Tony) Wright, Founder & Principal Partner
Tony launched Diversity Recruiters™ in late 2017 to address to lack of diversity in management and leadership positions in the Pacific Northwest.

He has been a senior executive for over 20 years, serving in both for-profit and non-profit environments.
As the Assistant Commissioner for the state's Employment Security Department under Governor Christine Gregoire, Tony led one of the most successful array of employment and hiring initiatives in state government - successfully serving over 400,000 citizens during the Great Recession - resulting in him being selected for the Distinguished Leadership in Government Award, as well as the Puget Sound Business Journal's 40 Under 40 Award.
