It is an honor to be nominated for the position of President-Elect of the International Council for Small Business. I have been involved with ICSB and USASBE since my introduction to academics during my doctoral program at Virginia Tech (1979 – 1983). I was fortunate to have studied under Dr. Max S. Wortman, one of the founding members of USASBE. I joined the USASBE Board in 2012, initially working with the 12 Special Interest Groups (SIGs). From 2014 –2016, I served as President-Elect, President, and Immediate Past President of USASBE. During my President Elect and Presidential years, I worked alongside of my predecessor, President Tony Mendez and ICSB President Jeff Alves to strengthen the relationship between USASBE and ICSB. These efforts resulted in the largest delegation of Korean members of ICSB attending the 2016 USASBE conference in San Diego. Subsequently, under President Ted Zoller, USASBE sent a large delegation to attend the Korea ICSB conference the following April. In 2016 under USASBE President Ted Zoller, I functioned as USASBE’s liaison to ICSB.  Read More >>

The wealth and diversity of people making up ICSB is an incredible strength that is being carried to new heights in 2018/2019. I believe this has provided an amazing opportunity where the base ICSB has created provides the right conditions that will see all four pillars of our members flourish and claim their rightful place in the 21st century. I would like to be part of delivering on this promise and see ICSB as not only well positioned but also having the potential to be well resourced enough to do this. Read More >>
