Johnny Wright, Owner/Auctioneer

Johnny Wright Auctions, LLC, is owned and operated by Johnny Wright. He is a lifelong resident of Jones County. He and his wife, Ashly, have been married for over 25 years and have two children (JT and Lara).

Raised in the stockyard with his granddaddy, Johnny knew he wanted to be an auctioneer at an early age. After graduating from West Jones High School in 1992, Johnny left to attend the World Wide College of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa. Upon completion he returned to Jones County to fulfill his dream of auctioneering. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Mississippi Auctioneering Association. He has attended a couple of Advanced Bidding Seminars, in 2015 and 2017, and in 2015 Johnny won the Mississippi State Rookie of the Year Award. He currently does sixty to eighty auctions a year either for himself or as a contract auctioneer. Johnny is licensed in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.

Johnny Wright is passionate about being an auctioneer, and those who attend his auctions detect and enjoy his enthusiasm. "I just love it . . . the people, the atmosphere, the excitement." He is honest and hard working. "I believe in building a relationship with a client. It is key for them to have a successful auction, and I want their auction to be fun and exciting for all involved – the client, the workers and the people attending."
