Wright Museum Welcomes Steve Farley to the Board

With a background in marketing, strategic planning, financial health and human resources, Steve Farley has joined the Board of Directors at the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro.

Previous to joining the Board, Farley worked at a number of corporations in varying capacities, beginning his career in advertising in New York at Saatchi and Saatchi followed by stints at Pizza Hut and Payless ShoeSource where he served as CMO. He also served as President of Hallmark and Yankee Candle and CEO of Regus (IWG).

Currently, he is retired, although he helps his daughter with her consulting business, 134 Consulting, while also fishing, playing softball and pickleball, hiking, biking and “driving [his] lovely wife of 34 years crazy.”

In looking to his future service on the Board at the Wright Museum, Farley expressed “much enthusiasm.” “I joined the Wright Board because I believe in the mission,” he noted. “My Dad was a WWII vet.”

In addition to his interest in the “Greatest Generation,” he said he has pride in Wolfeboro. “I have a strong desire to give back to our community,” added Farley, who grew up in New Jersey and earned a MS from Rutgers University.
