Our Mission

The Wilmington Business Leaders Network is a New Castle County Chamber of Commerce initiative.  Given the importance of the City of Wilmington to our state’s economy as well as the fact that we have close to 300 Chamber members with operations in Wilmington, it is imperative that we remain engaged in the many important issues facing the City and work toward making sure that Wilmington has a strong future as a vibrant, safe and friendly place to live and work.

To this end, we have formed the Wilmington Business Leaders Network.  This is not a new formal organization but rather a network of business leaders committed to identifying issues and opportunities of importance to the future of the city and its business environment.   

Our Leadership

While this is an informal network, Chamber President, Mark Kleinschmidt, has appointed Paul McConnell, of McConnell Johnson Real Estate, and Hal Real, Founder and CEO of World Cafe Live to Co-Chair this initiative.
