Castle Branch shows off new headquarters

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — NC Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker was in Wilmington today to check out Castle Branch and how the company is making good on its promise to create hundreds of jobs with the help of state and local incentives.

The employment screening company recently added about 60,000 square feet to its headquarters near Mayfaire. The new space will include recreation areas and even a small brewery plus a technology business incubator called tekMountain.

CEO Brett Martin says Wilmington has the potential to be one of the next technological hubs.

“We believe Wilmington could definitely be a technological center,” Martin said. “We have the beach. We have great people. There’s no reason we can’t make us one of those next centers.”

tekMountain gives workspace to technology-based businesses looking for growth. Castle Branch employees can also use the incubator to grow their own businesses, which gives them access to the company’s 4 million clients.

Wrightsville Beach lifeguards back to work, hoping for safe summer

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Wrightstville Beach lifeguards are back at their posts for summer.

Rip currents are always a danger, but no need to fear. It may be their first day on the beach, but Ocean Rescue Capt. Jeremy Owens says his lifeguards are prepared to keep you safe and sound this summer, and he has some tips to make sure you don’t have to be saved in the first place.

“We have a flag system. Pay attention to the flags. They are posted on the back of the stands, talk to the lifeguards,” Owens said. “Assess how the water conditions are, and if they are comfortable in the water, know their limitations. We ask all the parents down here to watch their kids.”

He says no one drowned at Wrightsville Beach last year, and he hopes to keep it that way this year.
