Wilmington Downtown Incorporated will get right to work to find a new leader.
President and CEO John Hinnant says he’ll stay until August 30th or until a replacement is found, whichever happens first.
WDI works to promote cultural events that support the economic success of downtown Wilmington.
Hinnant became executive director of WDI in 2007.
He's leaving to devote more time to his commercial real estate business, but says he will always be a strong supporter for the promotion of downtown Wilmington,
