Biden to announce Isabel Guzman as Head of Small Business Administration

In a bid to help small businesses in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, President-elect Joe Biden is set to nominate Isabel Guzman to head Small Business Association, an agency that has taken on an outsize role in helping disseminate Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

Reports have emerged from outlets including NBC News and The Wall Street Journal that Biden intends to nominate Isabel Guzman, currently director, Office of the Small Business Advocate for California to head the Small Business Administration (SBA).

According to her LinkedIn page, Guzman’s prior experience includes a three-year stint as the SBA’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to the Administrator from 2014 to 2017 and an emphasis on advising entrepreneurs, launching ventures, helping small businesses navigate the federal government and creating policies and programs to help advance entrepreneurship and innovation.”

This potentially bodes well for small-business owners suffering amid pandemic lockdowns and anxiously awaiting Congress’ latest round of federal Covid-19 relief to trickle down.

Guzman is the first Latina to be nominated for a position in Biden’s Cabinet.
