The Greater Wilmington Business Journal is dedicated to business news, outlook, and perspective in the Wilmington, NC area.  Every year, they compile a list of the area’s Top 100 Influencers.  The people on this list are singled out as the real changemakers in our community, in front of or behind the scenes.

We’re so proud to announce that Atlantic Packaging President, Wes Carter, has made the Top 100 list for 2020.

It was a challenging year for everyone around the world.  Business leaders were presented with special challenges of how to run a company successfully and keep people employed while also keeping people safe during a pandemic.  Wes and Rusty Carter rose to the occasion, leading Atlantic through this period with grace, empathy, and a clear voice.

Looking beyond this pandemic year, Wes has moved the Wilmington HQ-based company to a national footprint with the ability to serve the nation’s largest CPG manufacturers.  In addition, he’s making intentional and strategic moves towards sustainability both within the company operations and as a packaging supplier and consultant.  Atlantic has earned influence in the marketplace to help guide customers to the sustainable packaging products and processes they’re looking to create.

Thank you to the Greater Wilmington Business Journal for recognizing Wes and Atlantic in their list of the Top 100 Influencers in the community. It is an honor to be among such great company.
