FLETCHER WRIGHT ASSOCIATES INC CELEBRATES 50 YEARS
In 1970, Fletcher Wright Associates Inc., then called John A. Fletcher & Associates was launched by founder John (Jack) Fletcher. Originally offering consulting services in the occupational health and safety field, in 1978 the firm began managing its first association and within three years the business focus had shifted from OHS consulting to association management.
Jack Fletcher was joined by wife Margaret Fletcher in 1970, by his son Peter Fletcher in 1973, and in 1975 Jacks’ daughter Leslie Wright joined the firm full-time. It was now officially a family business and growing.
After Jack’s retirement in 1989 the company name was changed to Fletcher Wright Associates Inc, to acknowledge the two principals, Peter Fletcher and Leslie Wright. The third generation joined the firm in 1992 with the addition of Nicola (Nikki) Wright who became Leslie’s business partner when Peter retired in 2011.
“Today, we’re still very much a family business,” says Leslie Wright, President. “We’ve expanded beyond family to add to other team members, but we think of all our team as part of our family. I don’t believe my dad would ever have dreamed when he started the company out of his home, that we would have expanded and grown and changed direction along the way.”
“We are grateful for the opportunity to have served so many clients over the past 50 years. Thank you to the clients, colleagues and friends who have supported our success. In lieu of a celebration, Fletcher Wright Associates Inc. has donated to the following charitable organisations in recognition of our 50th Anniversary.
