The State of Wake County: Transportation, Affordable Housing, Quality of Life

Sig Hutchinson has been a Commissioner since 2014 and on the front lines of making our county more healthy and livable.

He has been working to make communities healthy and livable for more than two decades. Starting with a career with the Dale Carnegie organization, Sig became an instructor for the Dale Carnegie Sales Course for more than eight years before starting his own company to concentrate on sales consulting and professional speaking.

Later, Sig used his knowledge of communication and public speaking to help transform his community by leading six bond initiatives in Wake County and the City of Raleigh totaling $300 Million Dollars for open space preservation, parks, greenways, transportation, and affordable housing. Sig continues to be active in North Carolina where he sits on numerous boards and most recently ran for the NC State Senate.

Board activities include Prevention Partners; NC Alliance for Health; Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Commission for the City of Raleigh and former chair of Triangle Transit. Sig also chairs the Open Space & Parks Advisory Committee for Wake County and Board Chair for Advocates for Health in Action. He has also been a driving force behind the creation of more than 200 miles of interconnected greenways as former President of the Triangle Greenways Council.

Sig has been honored as “Tarheel of the Week” by the News & Observer, “Volunteer of the Year” by Wake County, “Green Advocate of the Year” by the Triangle Business Journal, “Top 50 Entrepreneurs in the Triangle” by Business Leader Magazine, a “Goodmon Award“ by Leadership Triangle, the “Citizen’s Award” by the NC Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, “Leadership Award” by WakeUP Wake County, and the A.E.

Sig continues his sales consulting and professional speaking career as President of Sig Hutchinson Communications. He has a B.A. from Texas Tech University; M.Ed. from the University of South Carolina, and lives on a greenway in Raleigh, NC with his wife of 32 years Nancy and they have a son who is married and three grandchildren.
