Zach Pluer Named as Executive Director of CFCC’s Wilson Center

Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) is pleased to announce that Zachary Pluer has been appointed Executive Director of the Wilson Center.

Pluer has served Cape Fear Community College’s Wilson Center in several capacities over the past several years. His most recent position as Senior Managing Director oversaw the Center’s ticketing, marketing, and operations departments and managed the Center’s busy day-to-day operations.

He has had a diverse career journey, transitioning from a successful career as a musician to holding various leadership roles in arts administration. His background in music, particularly as an independent artist, provided him with firsthand experience in promotion, performance, and touring. Those experiences contribute to his comprehensive understanding of the performance arts industry.

Pluer’s shift to art administration began during his tenure at the Carolina Theatre in Durham, where he played a pivotal role in supporting programming and developing an artist services program. This experience strengthened his skills in operations management and furthered his understanding of the needs of both artists and presenting institutions.

He possesses expertise in education, specifically in language instruction and administration. Being bilingual, his proficiency in both English and Spanish broadens his ability to engage with diverse audiences and stakeholders. The Wilson Center serves as a learning laboratory for our art and theatre students, offering them valuable firsthand experience in production work. Zach’s educational background will further enhance the learning prospects for our students.

“I am excited and humbled to lead the fantastic Wilson Center team,” said Pluer. “This new career chapter is the perfect culmination of my professional experiences. I look forward to all the incredible programming and continued engagement with the community.”

“Zach has the right mix of experience and skill to take on this important role,” said Jim Morton, CFCC President. “I am confident that under his leadership, the Wilson Center will continue to thrive and bring a variety of audience-pleasing performances to the Cape Fear region.”
