Dr. Winslow Sargeant will be the new chief counsel for advocacy of the Samll Business Administration.
The Senate confirmed Sargeant today as President Obama's nominee for the position.
SBA's Office of Advocacy "advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, the federal agencies, the federal courts and state policy makers," according to the department's website.
Sargeant has been serving as chief counsel since August of 2010 under a recess appointment. Under his leadership, the office has held more than 40 round-table discussion with small businesses, according to an SBA release.
"It is inspiring to witness this country's entrepreneurial spirit and it is an honor to represent small businesses every day," Sargeant said in a statement. "I would like to thank President Obama, the Senate, and the small business organizations and entrepreneurs who have supported my nomination."
Previously, Sargeant was managing director at Venture Investors, LLC, in Madison, Wis., providing seed money to health care and IT companies.
