Isabel Guzman, Director of the Office of
Small Business Advocate, GO-Biz
The Director of the Office of Small Business Advocate under GO-Biz, Isabel Guzman, has been appointed by President-Elect Joe Biden as the new Administrator of the US Small Business Administration (SBA)!
This is familiar stomping grounds for Guzman, as she served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the SBA under the Obama Administration prior to joining GO-Biz.
While at GO-Biz, Guzman worked tirelessly with the business community to secure resources for small businesses. BizFed and the BizFed Institute have partnered with her previously, most recently hosting a forum introducing small businesses to GO-Biz and opportunities to expand across the state.
BizFed is excited the President-Elect chose Isabel in this incredibly important capacity and we look forward to working with her as she works to provide resources to small businesses – particularly during these trying times.
Please see the below press release from Governor Newsom for more information.
We hope you find this information valuable. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Isabel Guzman embodies the story of the California and American Dream. As the daughter of a small business owner, Isabel was raised witnessing the power and opportunity of American entrepreneurism.
