The Delaware Small Business Development Center (DSBDC) announces organizational changes:

Denita Thomas will join DSBDC effective September 15, 2016 as Associate State Director. Denita brings over 20 years of experience in business and economic development to DSBDC, most recently as Director of Small Business Development in the City of Wilmington Mayor’s Office of Economic Development.  Her responsibilities will include management of the Lead Center and New Castle County.

William Pfaff, will become Assistant State Director, effective August 1, retaining management of Kent and Sussex Counties as well as adding responsibilities for legislative relations and liaison with the National Association of Small Business Development Centers.  Bill brings many years of experience in DSBDC and as a business owner to his new role.

State Director J. Michael Bowman adds, “We have a great team and we look forward to Denita coming on board.  As a result of the departure of former New Castle County Director John Osoinach and the upcoming retirement of Associate State Director Barbara Necarsulmer, we decided to manage our network in a different way. We bring the resources that businesses need to them regardless of location. So instead of location-based centers, we have a statewide leadership team that takes a more holistic approach to helping Delaware businesses grow and succeed.”
