I have known Spencer Wiggins for over 25 years, having worked with him on many charities, civic organizations and as contract consultants to various businesses. I have observed over the years the professional way in which he carries and conducts himself in public. His experience in the corporate world and his likeable personality and urbane appearance portrays a professionalism and confidence that is not only impressive but also contributes to his effectiveness.

I have known Spencer Wiggins for over 3 years and during that time he has proven himself to be a man of great influence and integrity. There was an achievement gap and a lack of support of non-traditional students in Raleigh, North Carolina, of those individuals who had been unsuccessful in a traditional academic environment. This resulted in a need to establish an alternative program to eliminate the achievement gap.
Spencer was responsible for implementing an intervention program in Raleigh by connecting the religious, academic and business communities to support and encourage the students to accept an alternative high school program.
It was through his insightfulness that the alternative program became viable and productive for students, 16 to 21, who had dropped out or were at risk of dropping out of high school in the Raleigh Public School System, to have the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma, which would set them on a path to a successful future.
His skills and expertise of networking with the greater Raleigh community, coupled with his fairness, caring and respect for others, has proven to be invaluable, along with his collaborative skills which are unprecedented and above reproach.

As President of the Raleigh-Apex National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), I have had the good fortune and opportunity to work closely with Spencer Wiggins in addressing the educational needs of those young people seeking a path to towards a successful future in Wake County.
He has shown to be a true professional who possesses a strong sense of empathy and the ability to inspire pride within our community and throughout Wake County. He is an effective leader and problem solver who takes it upon himself to involve all members of the community across diverse cultures in Raleigh by getting people and community leaders to work together towards a common goal in achieving success with a three prong approach of action, positive impact and results. He gets the job done respectfully and competently while being straightforward by exhibiting and providing proven community leadership and relationship capabilities that are second to none.

Spencer Wiggins is one who embodies the word service. Giving unselfishly of his time, always willing to lend a hand and to offer sound advice. I have had the privilege of knowing him for several years and I have constantly admired the way he conducts himself as he wears a warm smile and wisdom like a nicely tailored suit. Though his resume is impressive, it is the person off of the paper that impresses me the most, because I know he believes that if he can help one person then he can help a multitude of people. As it is only fitting that he is the founder of People Services Solutions, LLC, because serving people is the man I know him to be.

I met Spencer Wiggins 8 years ago when I became Chair of the Board of Education for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. I was instantly aware of his drive to provide an educational pathway for the many non-traditional students in our district. He surpassed his desire to accomplish this and worked closely with the district and the Charlotte community to celebrate the evolution of these students.
Spencer is a person of high moral integrity and he doesn't in the least, mind rolling up his sleeves, nor speaking truth to power. He championed the students served in the non-traditional settings he worked with. May his work continue to be a blessing to all of those he serves and encounters.

Spencer is very knowledgeable in all areas of human resources. I've watched him handle a number of difficult situations with a soft, but firm touch to protect the company while still achieving the desired outcome.
He is also particularly strong at building relationships. He has a built very good network of extremely influential individuals across the country. He has been able to leverage that network to positively impact decisions and outcomes.
Finally, Spencer has always believed in giving back to the community through community service. He is involved in a number of local causes, but most of them centering on mentoring and setting examples for young men. Spencer is a man of integrity. I learned a lot from working with him.

Spencer Wiggins is a maven at what he does. In my time working with him, I've seen fewer people as adept at connecting an organization's strategic objectives to the human relevance at the ground level. After nearly a decade of seeing him operate in a range of different communities, I've realized that the value Spencer has brought is rooted in an authentic care for people and community. And that's why he gets results.
