Dr. Frank Wright Announces Intention to Step Down as NRB President & CEO

Dr. Frank WrightNRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright, who has led the association for the past 10 years, announced on Monday his intention to step down this coming October.

After a decade of faithful service and leadership as NRB’s President & CEO, Dr. Wright shared in a letter to NRB Chairman Rich Bott that he has “prayerfully concluded that my season of service at NRB is drawing to a close.”

“Ruth and I have counted this as a special season of blessing in our lives,” expressed Dr. Wright, referring to his wife of 32 years. “We have felt our time in your service to be fruitful and fulfilling, yet we now have a clear sense that the Lord is leading us to another area of service.”

From now until October 4, Dr. Wright will continue to lead the association of Christian broadcasters and communicators.

Chairman Bott, meanwhile, will be appointing a search committee comprising members of the NRB Board of Directors and Executive Committee to begin the process of recruiting and vetting qualified candidates for the leadership position.

“We appreciate Frank’s dedicated service and stellar performance as NRB’s President & CEO,” noted Bott. “We especially appreciate the top-notch team of dedicated professionals he has assembled to do the work of NRB, serve our membership and protect religious free speech on Capitol Hill. I trust that the Lord will bless us and guide our efforts as He so clearly did ten years ago with the selection and acceptance of Dr. Frank Wright.”
