(appointed position, not a voting board member)

Richard Hinson - Dick first ventured to the outer banks in the early days of the Eisenhower administration where, when crossing the bridge over the sound for the first time, he asked his mother, “What happened? Did it rain?”  He has been returning ever since, becoming a Pine Island home owner in 1994.

Dick grew up in NC and, in the 1960s, attended Davidson College where he learned never to trust anyone over 30.  He then collected three graduate degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill where he learned that you still need $4.50 (inflation adjusted, of course) to buy that decaf non-fat latte at the local coffee shop.  Dick also met his wife, Zoila (an Army brat originally from San Juan, PR) in Chapel Hill, and, equipped with new responsibilities, launched his career in sales, marketing and general management in the pharmaceutical industry.

After starting as a sales professional with Merck and advancing through positions of increasing responsibility, Dick moved to Searle where he became President of Searle’s Canadian affiliate and then President of the Asia Pacific region.  He was later head of worldwide strategic marketing with Bristol-Myers Squibb and, most recently, head of commercial operations for Roche Laboratories in the US.  He assisted in Roche’s merger with Genentech by organizing the company’s largest strategic business unit.  Products for which Dick has had direct responsibility include Zocor, Accutane, Boniva and Tamiflu.  He and his family have lived in the greater Philadelphia, Chicago and Toronto areas as well as in Princeton, NJ and San Francisco, CA. 

Dick and Zoila’s daughter, also named Zoila, is an associate with one of those high powered law firms in Washington, DC.  His son Edward is a songwriter and guitarist with the metal group, Kiss the Curse (like their Facebook page), and a full time student in the online program of Berklee College of Music, out of Boston. 

Dick and Zoila currently live in Chapel Hill.  He is a member of the Duck Woods Country Club, the Corolla Civic Association and is on the board of the North Carolina Symphony.
