I’ve been hearing and reading about who other people think the new SBA Administrator might be, so I decided to contribute to the conversation. In case you haven’t heard, the current Administrator, Karen Mills, is stepping down at the end of August and the White House has yet to name a replacement. She made her announcement in February, which means we’ve had five months of speculation.
Instead of guessing who the next SBA Administrator might be, I put together a list of characteristics he or she should possess and a few things that ought to be done to help America’s small businesses. My latest Huffington Post column has the full story, so go here to read, comment, and share it with others.
Thanks for reading and sharing this with those who’ll find it helpful or interesting. And if you really want to leave a comment here, you can do that (or email me at ChrisHurn@MercantileCC.com), but commenting on the Huffington Post will allow a wider audience to get in on the conversation.
P.S. While we eagerly await an announcement from the White House about who the new SBA Administrator will be, we’re still closing loans for small business owners nationwide. You may or may not have read about our loan volume figures for the halfway point of 2013, so go here to read our full press release.
