The Historic Wilmington Foundation’s executive director is retiring after nearly 13 years.
George Edwards submitted his notice to retire effective on Dec. 15, Walker Abney, president of the Board of Trustees of Historic Wilmington Foundation, announced in a news release Tuesday. Edwards has held the position as executive director of the foundation since 2004.
November will mark Edward’s 13th year with the organization. He is the longest-serving executive in the foundation’s 51-year history, officials said in the release. The Historic Wilmington Foundation has been established in the Wilmington region since 1966.
“I feel good about my decision … but I think the next chapter should be fun too,” Edwards said Tuesday.
