Bale named 2015 businessman of the year
Pam MonsonA $4,000 loan established a business that has been supporting Wilmington and its residents for more than 50 years, support that would add up to countless times more than that original investment.
And this year, the owner of that business, Henry Bale, wasn't going to be allowed to turn down the nomination for business person of the year that he'd declined twice already.
Wilmington Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Wes Smith announced that Henry Bale, owner of The Bale Agency, was selected as the 2015 Business Person of the Year. He joins such notable local businessmen as Eric Fisher, Angelo Aggelopoulos, Larry Clennon and Ralph "Tuffy" Stevens as a recipient of the award that was created in 1999 to honor a business owner or manager's contribution to the community.
