AT&T is one of the top three media spenders in sports, and one of the biggest in general media as well. Charged with blending that heady brew is former Anheuser-Busch marketing exec Wright, who came over to the communications giant in 2011 after 19 years at A-B. Wright runs herd over dozens of team and facility sponsorships, including naming rights at the home venues of the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco Giants. He’s responsible for media strategy and planning across AT&T’s businesses, along with sponsorship strategy and negotiation for sports, entertainment and cultural sponsorships.
