Improving Business in the Wilmington Region


Wilmington Business Development was recently honored by Cape Fear CREW, a regional association of commercial real estate professionals. Cape Fear CREW’s 6th Annual Awards of Excellence, held in February, included an Impact Award for WBD.

The Impact Award recognizes an individual or company that consistently exemplifies the traits of outstanding leadership in the commercial real estate industry and who has made a significant contribution to and has had a significant positive influence on the Cape Fear region’s commercial real estate industry.

CEO Scott Satterfield was on hand to receive the award on behalf of WBD. “WBD is proud to be recognized by the region’s commercial real estate leaders,” Satterfield says. “We consider the dedicated professionals at Cape Fear CREW to be our partners and allies, bringing expertise that adds value to the economic development process and to WBD’s mission.”
Pender Commerce Park also was a finalist for CREW’s Best Development Award, which recognizes a team who worked together on a development, redevelopment or major renovation project in the Cape Fear Region that demonstrates excellence in functionality, aesthetics, environmental sensitivity and sustainability and relationship to surroundings. That award was ultimately won by nCino for its expansion efforts in Wilmington.

Longtime WBD member Hansen Matthews of Maus, Warwick, Matthews & Co. was honored with the RCASENC Lifetime Achievement Award. Also recognized were WBD allies Cameron Management, WM Jordan, Monteith Construction, Thomas Construction and North Carolina’s Southeast.
