Wilmington-resident Ben Wright recently joined the National Down Syndrome Society's board of directors, according to a news release.

“As the proud father of two children with Down syndrome, this appointment is especially important to me,” Wright said in the release.
 
Wright is president of Dye Creek Capital, an independent investment practice associated with Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network LLC. The practice serves individuals and businesses in basic investment planning. In addition to registered support staff, he employs eight employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

“This way of doing business allows me to live out my convictions and makes my professional life as authentic as my personal life," he said.

“Ben is a tremendous leader in the Down syndrome and broader disability community, and an amazing advocate for his two children with Down syndrome," Sara Hart Weir, National Down Syndrome Society president, said in the release. "Ben’s leadership in paving the way for more competitive employment opportunities for people with disabilities in North Carolina is an example of what is needed now, especially on the heels of the passage of the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, and we look forward to Ben’s leadership in helping us replicate these types of employment programs nationwide.”
