Ad man helping rebrand Obama center neighborhoods
September 6th, 2017
Sherman Wright brings marketing expertise to the economic development group working around the Obama Presidential Center. He also brings a personal connection.
Wright bought his first Chicago home in Washington Park and now lives in Bronzeville.
“When it was time to place roots, I wanted to be part of a community that I was passionate about,” he told me. “I saw opportunity there and I wanted to be part of the revitalization.”
Wright joins former U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan in leading the economic-development organization designed to make sure neighborhoods around the Obama library benefit from its success.
“We want to ensure that they are part of it,” says Sherman.
