On Monday, June 15, all 110 women and men of The Buccini/Pollin Group returned to our Downtown Wilmington office, after nearly 90 days of working from home. Like many other businesses in our region, we walked out of the doors with our laptops in hand on a March afternoon expecting to shortly return.

Delaware is in prime position to capitalize on the wide-ranging economic shifts spurred by COVID-19

As Delaware and the rest of the U.S. continues to battle through the challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we find ourselves in a world changing more rapidly than ever.
