Regional Director Supply Excellence, Mars Wrigley

Ronda Wright has been interested in solving problems and understanding how things worked since she was a child. Naturally inquisitive, it was not uncommon for her to take apart every watch that her parents gave her to understand how the watch worked. Over time, she also developed a passion for helping people and trying to make processes simpler and repeatable. Respected as a credible voice in manufacturing and operations, Ronda has earned a seat at the table in strategic decision making, determining policy, and establishing governance boundaries.

Currently, as the Regional Director of Supply Excellence for Mars Wrigley North America, Ronda develops strategy for the segment’s continuous improvement journey with the ambition of driving business results through capability building. Previously, Ronda held leadership roles at Coca-Cola, General Mills, and Anheuser Busch.

Ronda holds an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis and a BS in Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. She is Six Sigma Black Belt Certified through the American Society for Quality. Ronda currently serves on the Board of Directors for Women in Manufacturing. She enjoys traveling, wine tasting, and watching college football.
