“The U.S. Small Business Administration needs the best and the brightest as we continue to deliver record relief and ensure our nation’s 32.5 million small businesses and innovative startups have the tools and resources they need to start, grow and be resilient. Marlene, John, and Mike have a proven track record of doing just that – and I’m confident that, together with their mission-driven district staff, they will continue to deliver the on-the-ground expertise and guidance our small businesses and innovative startups need during this period of economic recovery. I look forward to having them join my team to carry out the SBA’s mission and ensure all entrepreneurs are given a fair shot at achieving their dreams.”
