Amy K. Bassett, district director of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Maine office, has been named the new district director of the SBA’s New Hampshire office.
She succeeds Greta Johansson, who retired earlier this year after more than 38 years with the SBA, nine of them as the state’s director.
Bassett, who has been Maine district director since January 2017, worked for several years in the New Hampshire office before that. In fact, she began her career with the SBA in the New Hampshire office in 1990 and held a variety of positions during her time there, including as deputy district director and lender relations specialist. She is a native of Sandown.
“Her experience positions her well to lead New Hampshire businesses and the New Hampshire entrepreneurial ecosystem through these challenging times,” said the SBA’s New England Regional Administrator Wendell Davis.
Bassett said, that “having worked with many of the lenders and small business service partners in New Hampshire in the past, I welcome the opportunity to re-establish those relationships and focusing on fostering new partnerships throughout the state.”
