“Among the many reasons PPD established its headquarters in Wilmington, the region’s attractive quality of life and good business climate stand out. Building on Wilmington’s reputation as a desirable place to live and work helps increase the availability of a highly skilled local workforce. The Chamber, through its Cape Fear Future initiative, is leading the way. This focus on community building is meaningful for all who live and work in the region — and an important reason why PPD continues to be a strong supporter.”
