The Enterprise Center is looking forward to 2015 with great enthusiasm. Positive changes are well underway.
Six months ago we hired Greg Smith to take the lead in restructuring the Enterprise Center: to evaluate and improve programming and staffing, to expand communications media and community outreach, and to create an innovative plan for future activities and objectives. He has done a great job. He has reenergized the Center, implemented needed improvements internally and externally, and created a sound blueprint upon which to build future success.
Although Greg will be returning to the private sector in 2015, we can count on him to be a valuable business resource for the Center for years to come. We sincerely appreciate all he has done in a short time to set the Business Enterprise Center in a new and exciting direction. The Center’s long time Operating Officer Laura Swanson will take the lead as Executive Director in 2015.
The Enterprise Center’s website has been restructured to make it more user-friendly and informative. Moving forward, we hope you will stop by often to see the new programs, activities and resources available to help businesses succeed on the North Shore.
Best wishes for a busy, prosperous, and successful new year!
Chairman, SSUFAC Board
