Ashley Bell will take the reins of the Small Business Administration’s Southeast Region as its new director, the White House announced Monday.
The Georgia native, who will be sworn in Monday, Feb. 26, will be President Donald Trump’s first minority appointment to an SBA regional position.
“The SBA plays a critical role in helping to start and grow businesses,” said Bell in a statement. “Now, more than ever, the economy is growing and we must do our part to help America’s small businesses.”
