April 22, 2014

Stacy Sacco, Anderson School of Management Lecturer and Associate Director of the UNM Small Business Institute (SBI) will be assuming Dr. Raj Mahto's role as the Director of the program as of Monday, April 20, 2014. We wish to thank Dr. Mahto for his exceptional work the past few years heading up the SBI including expanding the number of clients, improving the quality of work, increasing program revenues and working with several Anderson professors and student teams to win several awards from the national Small Business Institute organization.

As Sacco says, "I'm looking forward to taking a larger role in moving the SBI programs forward and building on the many accomplishments Dr. Mahto, the participating professors and student teams have achieved. We have a strong team of dedicated professors and SBI staff including David Hammitt and Tyler Briggs to insure the seamless continuity of this valuable program.”

The SBI provides a select group of local small businesses and nonprofit organizations consulting assistance with critical business projects such as marketing, strategy, financing and business plans. The SBI works with several Anderson School of Management classes and national databases each semester to bring an outside perspective to small business owners. Since its founding in 1978, the SBI has assisted over six hundred organizations and positively impacted the local economy.
