SBA deputy administrator to return to private industry

SBA deputy administrator to return to private industry

The Small Business Administration's deputy administrator Melanie Sabelhaus today announced she will return to the private sector June 15.

Sabelhaus, who has been with SBA since April 2002, helped administrator Hector Barreto manage more than 80 offices around the country, developed policy and oversaw agency programs.

She did not say in the SBA release what her plans are after leaving government.

Before coming to SBA, Sabelhaus founded a property rental and management company in Baltimore and Washington, and worked for IBM Corp.

'I feel I have the best job in government, working with entrepreneurs, the engine that is fueling our economy every day all over the country, and working with women, the economic powerhouse of the 21st century, who are starting new businesses at twice the rate of men,' Sabelhaus said in a release. 'They are the innovators and job creators and heart and soul of America. I will never forget this experience.'
