Spave is proud to announce Christen Wright as its new Head Of Product.
Wright joins Spave from The Reseda Group, where he serves in the same capacity. The Reseda Group is a subsidiary of Michigan State University Federal Credit Union, which acquired Live.Give.Save. to form Spave LLC in May 2021.
As a customer experience and product visionary for more than 10 years, Wright will drive the product vision for Spave, helping users to save and give more to their favorite charitable organizations.
"I'm excited to have an opportunity for my profession to converge at the intersection of technology and providing a community good," he said.
Wright earned a bachelor's degree in consumer economics and an MBA from the University of Georgia. He has a diverse background in customer experience, product development and management, and marketing for several Fortune 500 companies, including AT&T, Best Buy, and Delta Air Lines.
Spave CEO, Susan Langer commented, "We are extremely excited to welcome Christen to the Spave team. His deep experience in product development and user experience, coupled with his passion for community outreach, makes Christen a perfect fit to help drive our vision and mission forward."
Wright lives in Atlanta where he volunteers as a mentor for students in Atlanta Public Schools. He also serves as a board member for Next Generation Men & Women, an organization that provides mentorship and exposure programming for Atlanta-area high school students.
Wright is currently celebrating the Atlanta Braves' 2021 World Series championship. He's also an avid fan of his alma mater, the University of Georgia Bulldogs, regularly attending home football games and tailgates. A big soccer fan, Wright is a season ticket holder for Atlanta United, and was in attendance for the club's 2018 MLS Cup championship-clinching match.
