As a board member, Mr. Rick Carroll believes WRC’s most important role in the city of Wilmington is that of a convener and a promoter.
“These are the key things that WRC can do to continue to be a part of this [city’s] transition. The first is to promote the city and downtown Wilmington specifically.”
“But I also think it plays a very important role in coordinating a lot of different groups. Whether those are civic groups, nonprofits, the business community – I think that’s really the direction we want to go in over the next few years.”
And the next few years, Rick believes, are going to be very good for Wilmington. His proof? Just take a look at the last 25 years.
“I think it’s amazing what WRC has been able to achieve in the last 25 years,” he said. “But even in the last five to ten years, you can take a look at downtown Wilmington and see the progress that the City and all the active organizations have made and it really is incredible.”
Rick is a partner at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP in Wilmington. There he concentrates most of his work on corporate advisory and governance.
Currently, he lives in Trolley Square and spends his free time traveling abroad, having been to 80 countries.
Rick and Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP have been instrumental in the development of the 7th & West community green space in the Creative District. If not for their diligent work and legal advice, the green space project would not be possible. They truly believe in the mission of WRC and Creative District and we are very thankful for their expertise and their full-hearted support.
