Thomas Wright was born and raised in Utah. He then graduated from Quince Orchard High School in the Washington D.C. metro area. In 1997, he graduated from the University of Utah with two Bachelor of Art degrees: Marketing and Russian.
In 2008, Thomas was invited to become an owner and now serves as the President and Principal Broker of Summit Sotheby's International Realty after the prestigious firm of Lewis Wolcott & Dornbush Real Estate became affiliated with Sotheby's International Realty. Since that time, the company has grown its gross yearly sales volume through aggressive recruiting and strategic planning from $135 million in 2008 to $1.3 billion in 2014.
Prior to joining Summit Sotheby's International Realty, he was a top-producing sales agent with Prudential Utah Real Estate and served as the marketing director for Coldwell Banker Premier Realty. During this time, Thomas was responsible for the marketing initiatives for several hundred real estate agents in offices all across the state of Utah. Thomas has used his background to speak to large and small groups nationally about lead generation, effective management of leads, innovative sales techniques, social media and web site creation.
Thomas is a civically minded citizen and has been elected and appointed to serve on several key organizations in the community. He currently sits on the Board of Directors for the United Way, which serves Salt Lake, Summit and Davis Counties and was recently recognized with one of the organization's highest honors for its efforts to dramatically change the delivery of early education in Utah. He also served as the Chairman of the Utah Republican Party, the Salt Lake County Republican Party and was a member of the Republican National Committee (RNC). In 2012, Thomas cast all of Utah's 40 votes for Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.
Thomas enjoys traveling the world, which has included a two-week golf excursion to Scotland, an Arctic Circle fishing adventure for Northern Pike and extended stays with his family in southern France and the English countryside.
