The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce Zachary Pluer as the Center’s new Senior Managing Director. In this role, Zachary will oversee the operations, ticketing, and marketing departments, as well as the day-to-day logistics of the venue.
Zachary takes on this position after five years with the Wilson Center as a Guest Experience Coordinator. Prior to joining the Wilson Center team, Zachary was the lead vocalist and guitarist of the indie touring band Herman Astro. In 2013, he moved to North Carolina to begin his career behind the scenes at the historic Carolina Theatre in Durham. His diverse background as both a performer and administrative professional in the live event industry gives him a unique and comprehensive overview of all facets of live performances.
“I am extremely honored to be given the opportunity to continue our mission as a steward of this amazing regional resource,” Zachary said, “I look forward to serving our students, guests, volunteers, and staff in creating meaningful connections and powerful memories in this community that I’ve grown to love over the last 6 years. As we reopen, we look to brighter days ahead and can’t wait to welcome our community back to the Wilson Center.”
Throughout the challenges of the past year and a half, Zachary stepped up by taking the lead on projects such as the Wilson Center’s Drive-In Concert Series and the Skyline Drive-In Movie series in conjunction with Thalian Hall. He also coordinated the efforts to bring the Vivace International Music Festival to Wilmington this summer. “We are blessed to have such a powerful team of talented professionals at the Wilson Center. Zachary has been an integral part of our team and a proven leader for almost as long as we have been open; he is committed through and through to our student-first/community-first mission. I look forward to my work with him in this new role to continue to make the Wilson Center an even greater success in service to our region,” said Vice President of Advancement and the Arts Shane Fernando.
