WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The president and CEO of Wilmington Downtown, Inc. submitted his letter of resignation to the Executive Committee earlier this week.
John Hinnant told the board of directors in an email he has decided to move his career into commercial real estate.
Hinnant will stay on board until August 30, 2013 or when a replacement is hired to help with the transition.
"I'm not sure words can convey how awesome this job is and has been," said Hinnant in an email to the board of directors. "To wake up every day and promote the community you are from is incredible."
The WDI Board of Directors will be performing a nationwide search for Hinnant's replacement.
The mission of WDI is to promote economic growth and development in downtown Wilmington.
