Corporate Spotlight

As a national network of corporate members, ad clubs and college chapters, the AAF strives to bring members together to yield creative business solutions and to educate members on the latest trends in our industry. As a way to do this, we have developed our new corporate spotlight; it is designed to introduce you to our corporate members and help you learn more about what they can offer you and your business. We will begin with our newest AAF members and feature different spotlights regularly. To get to know any of our corporate members better, go to the Membership tab on our website and click on the appropriate corporate link.

Besides being a best-loved company, Wrigley is also a great place to work. Associates are the most important part of the company’s continued growth and success. Wrigley believes their culture is unique and that the quality of their team is an important part of making the company so special.  Associates are proud to be a part of the Wrigley Company and are dedicated to its long-term success. Their people perform with unsurpassed passion, commitment, and integrity. Strategies and products can be copied, but the culture cannot be duplicated. It’s called "The Wrigley Way," and it is this extraordinary combination of elements that enables and fosters generational growth.

Decades ago the founder, William Wrigley Jr., defined the core values of trust, dignity, and respect. For generations, Wrigley has done business using these values and adopted a set of high performance leadership behaviors that are integral to who they are and how they go about doing business. When combined with the unique culture, it creates "the soul of the company." This is the common thread that connects associates in every corner of the world.
Wrigley has been delighting consumers with fun, innovative, high-quality products for more than 100 years. From baking powder and soap in Chicago in 1891, to gum, candy, mints and chocolate around the world today, Wrigley has evolved and expanded with an eye to the future and a steady focus on the consumer.
