MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center has a new leader.
The UW Extension service has announced the hiring of Bon Wikenheiser, who ran a similar center in North Dakota. She'll begin her new job next week.
Wikenheiser will also head the Extension's Center for Technology Commercialization.
The Wisconsin small business center provides free counseling and educational programs for entrepreneurs and other business owners throughout Wisconsin.
Wikenheiser ran a network of 17 offices when she was the state director of the North Dakota Small Business Development Center.
The UW Extension's Mark Lange said Wikenheiser "engaged business, government, and higher education leaders in her state" to ensure major impacts from numerous investments in the North Dakota program.
