Expanding the business while duck hunting with a friend and business associate, John Gibson in 1977, Gerald and John discussed the area's need for a hometown bank that would better serve southeastern Sussex County. It was in a duck blind that Gibson and Wilgus exchanged thoughts and ideas that in 1979 led to the creation of the First National Bank of Georgetown, which is now known as Delaware National Bank. Gerald served as the founding Chairman and remained as the Chairman of the Board for twelve years. By this time Wilgus Associates included real estate sales, rentals, development, construction, and insurance.In July, 1981, Donald Wilgus retired from Wilgus Associates. It was during the 1980s that Gerald's three children each graduated from the University of Delaware and joined the company to become the third generation to work at the family business: Michael in 1981, David in 1985, and Melanie in 1988. Michael initially joined the company as a clerk in the Summer Rental Department, advanced on as a Rental Agent, Sales Agent, and eventually a Real Estate Broker. David began his career at Wilgus in the Insurance Department as an agent and progressed to become the company's Insurance Broker. Melanie headed the Appraisal Division for a number of years before she and her family relocated out of the area.Passing the Torch January of 2002 brought about many corporate changes at Wilgus Associates. Gerald, who had semi-retired several years previous, officially retired from the business after a long and successful career in establishing all of the company's services and growing the business to three separate locations with a staff of close to sixty people. Michael became President while David continued as Wilgus' Secretary~Treasurer. David progressed with the family interest in the bank his father founded by gaining a seat on the Board of Directors at Delaware National Bank.Tim Hill, who had originally joined Wilgus Associates in 1985 as a Rental Agent, took over the reigns of the young Property Management Department in 1988. Under Tim's leadership and guidance, the Property Management Department of Wilgus Associates is the area's leader in Property Management services, including Year Round Rentals, Property Maintenance, and virtually all levels of HOA Services. In July, 2006, Tim became Vice-President of Wilgus Associates.The first representative of the fourth generation in the Wilgus family began at the family business in June of 2006. Kylie Marie Wilgus, a graduate of Goldey Beacom College, continues to work in many areas of support at the company, including advertising, real estate sales and vacation rentals.In Conclusion many years have past and much change has occurred since the days of the one room insurance office on the ocean front in Bethany Beach. Without the dedicated staff and the loyal customers over the past sixty years, Wilgus Associates would not have prospered and realized the success that is enjoyed today.Honesty, professionalism, and integrity continue to be the basis on which this company conducts business.
