Source Date: August 12, 2012
Bladen Community College has a new face in charge of the Small Business Center. He is Todd Lyden, who has worked as Small Business Program Director for the Fayetteville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce for the past six years.
Before working for the Chamber of Commerce, he worked for Methodist University for seven years.
After graduating from Eastern Wayne High School in Goldsboro, he attended Methodist University where he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 1996. Two years later he earned a Master of Public Administration from George Mason University.
Lyden states that his experience working with small businesses in his previous capacity will prove very beneficial to him in his new position as the BCC Small Business Center Director. He says that he understands the challenges small business owners and entrepreneurs face in getting established.
"I look forward to working with area small business owners as well as with those who are interested in getting into business for themselves," said Lyden. "We offer a variety of programs to help small businesses get off the ground successfully, including a variety of seminars offered at no cost to the attendee."
In his new capacity, Lyden will also be working to develop training programs for existing local industries and industries that are considering locating in Bladen County.
In his spare time, Lyden enjoys travel, movies, TV and reading. He and his wife, Jennifer, have three children and make their home in Fayetteville.
