Testimonials & Success Stories

Brandon is the most selfless person I've ever met. As my manager, he challenged and motivated me all at the same time. I was given the opportunity to create something from scratch and he trusted my judgement. I truly believe it is because his strategic leadership style that my career was able continue to flourish. He taught us all the importance of using statistical and analytical data to drive our decision making. Ironically, now I don't even make decisions unless I review the data. Brandon is also a visionary leader who helps you clearly to see the end goal before the vision comes to fruition. I am honored to say that I was able to share the same space under his leadership. He is truly ahead of his time.

Jeremy Ervin, MBA | Work Force Development Administrator

Brandon's leadership as President for the Alabama Association of Colleges and Employers (AACE) last year was visionary and helped move the organization forward by a tremendous measure. Serving as his Vice President was an opportunity for me to grow and watch his leadership skills in the area of vision-casting, event planning and implementation, and dynamically leading a group. The changes and advancements Brandon implemented in AACE during his time on the board and now as Past-President, will continue to influence its success.

Lauren Cole | Director of Career Services

Brandon is quite possibly one of the easiest people to write a recommendation about. I've known him for a little over three years and had the pleasure of serving alongside him on the Board of the Alabama Association of Colleges & Employers. Brandon is everything you could want in a leader and team member. He is kind, thoughtful, considerate, creative, a problem solver, logical, encouraging, eager to serve, reasonable, and a genuinely good human being. Any team should consider themselves fortunate to have him and I would enthusiastically work with him on any team or project!

Candace Phillips | Senior Career Coordinator

Brandon is extremely insightful about the future of career development. He is passionate about his role and is skilled in helping others. I have enjoyed working with Brandon and appreciate his enthusiasm for making a difference!

Denita Clara Bearden | Chief Administrative Officer

Dr. Wright has been a master of not just giving people fish, but teaching us how to fish for ourselves. He has been a consistent presence in my professional career answering any and all questions that I have. Dr. Wright has provided me with many effective resources that I have shared with my team. His mindset and focus are on another level and I respect him, his vision, his character, and his God-given purpose to lead.

Cortez Washington | Associate Director Of Career Services

He has graciously mentored me since 2018. Brandon's intentionality really amazed me during our mentorship. During each conversation, I could hear what sounded like him typing up our conversation to capture as "meeting minutes." He genuinely cared about me and always asked questions during our monthly conversations regarding our previous conversation. Iron sharpens iron. Brandon and I were able to sharpen one another due to our shared common faith and core values. He increased my capacity as a husband, father, and leader. And, for that, I can never repay him; however, I will always pay it forward. Brandon is an exceptional mentor, listener, coach, and encourager; he has a bright future ahead of himself. Best wishes to you and your beautiful family, Brandon. God Bless.
