The University of South Florida’s Muma College of Business has appointed Carl Hadden as the new regional director of the Florida SBDC at USF.
Hadden has served as the interim regional director since July 2021, when former director Eileen Rodriguez announced her retirement after 24 years. Hadden has worked for the Florida SBDC at USF since 2013.
Now, Hadden will lead the west central Florida area to offer no-cost consulting, training, market research and information for some 5,000 businesses annually.
The Florida SBDC at USF helped businesses access more $60 million in business capital last year, providing 24,000 hours of consulting.
