NH District Director Welcomes Recently Appointed New England Regional Administrator

District Director Amy K. Bassett is pleased to welcome new SBA Regional Administrator Mike Vlacich.

We are thrilled to hear that President Biden has appointed New Hampshire resident Mike Vlacich as the Regional Administrator for the New England Region of the SBA.

Mike is a talented leader ready to hit the ground running, leading our dedicated New England team in the delivery of direct guidance and impactful services that will help our entrepreneurs survive, grow and thrive as we turn the page on this pandemic.

As Region I Administrator, Mike will oversee SBA programs, offices, and operations in the SBA’s New England region, serving Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  

Mike is a respected New Hampshire public servant with extensive economic development, policy, and constituent service experience at the nonprofit, state, and federal government levels. He is currently serving as a Senior Advisor to U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and over the years has served in other leadership roles in her U.S. Senate and Governor’s offices.  He previously served as President and CEO of the New Hampshire College and University Council, State Director for U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan, Director of the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, and Deputy Chief of Staff to New Hampshire Governor John Lynch. Mike is a first-generation American and the first in his family to attend college, graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 1995.  He lives in Concord, NH with his wife and two daughters. 

Please join me in welcoming Mike to his new role with the SBA here in New England.
