Wright Lindsey Jennings
Adrienne Baker is chief operating officer for Wright Lindsey Jennings, one of the largest law firms in Arkansas. Baker also has a commercial litigation practice focused primarily on the banking industry. She regularly defends banks and their officers and directors from lender and account liability claims, of late including multiple Ponzi scheme cases. Baker provides counsel services for companies in the manufacturing, construction and professional services sectors, and Super Lawyers has named her a “Rising-Star” nearly every year since 2012. After serving nine years on the board of directors for the American Red Cross of Greater Arkansas, including a stint as board chair, Baker is taking a break from nonprofit board service to help guide WLJ through an exciting growth period following the firm’s combination with Dover Dixon Horne PLLC. In her free time, Baker enjoys hiking and traveling with her husband and son.
The C-Suite: That place where most of us strive to be when we launch a career. Referring to the cluster of top-level executive positions within most companies — chief executive officer (CEO), chief operating officer (COO), chief financial officer (CFO) and chief information officer (CIO) — the C-Suite entails hard work, high stress and long hours. But the rewards can be substantial.
AMP asked readers to tell us who their favorite C-Suite executives were. Their titles may not precisely reflect “CEO” or any of the others, but their roles do. This isn’t a “best of” or a “top executives” list; but it’s a way to recognize many of those business executives in Arkansas whose hard work makes The Natural State a great place to live and work.
